Consequently, you may be eligible for these benefits. The best thing to do is to contact the disability attorney at disabilitycasereview.com, and have your case evaluated at no cost or obligation to you.

Pocket or pouch

Every hair on your body grows out of a pocket or tiny pouch known as a follicle. Folliculitis is an infection that occurs in your hair follicles.

Folliculitis is a common skin condition. It is usually evidenced by small red or pink bumps located at your hair follicles. There can be anywhere from 10 to 100 slightly smooth, extremely small bumps scattered over a part of your body, such as your chest.

Some of these small bumps may have a light-red halo, which is an indication of inflammation. You may see a small trapped or coiled hair inside if you scratch off the top of the bump.

Any area

Any area of your body where hair grows can be a target of folliculitis. This includes your chest, back, legs, buttocks, arms and cheeks, but the areas where folliculitis occurs most often are your scalp, face, thighs and groin.

There are two primary kinds of folliculitis, which are superficial and deep. Superficial folliculitis occurs in the upper part of your hair follicle. Deep folliculitis starts deeper in the skin surrounding your hair follicle and affects all of the follicle.

There are several forms of superficial folliculitis. These include:

Pityrosporum folliculitis
Staphylococcal folliculitis
Tinea barbae
Herpetic folliculitis
Pseudomonas folliculitis (hot tube folliculitis)
Pseudofolliculitis.

There are also different kinds of deep folliculitis. Some of these are:

Boils and carbuncles
Gram-negative folliculitis
Eosinophilic folliculitis.

The symptoms you experience with folliculitis is determined by whether you have superficial or deep. Some of the symptoms of superficial folliculitis are:

Itchiness or tenderness
Clusters of small red bumps that develop around your hair follicles
Pus-filled blisters that crust over and break open
Red, inflamed skin.

Some of the symptoms of deep folliculitis include:

Pain
Pus-filled blisters that crust over and break open
A large swollen bump or mass
Possible scars when the infection clears.

As already mentioned, folliculitis would not normally qualify you to receive Social Security Disability. However, complications resulting from the condition and/or other underlying, debilitating ailments along with folliculitis have caused you to be disabled, unable to work and in need of financial assistance.

Have you applied for the financial assistance you need by applying for Social Security Disability from the Social Security Administration? Were you denied?

Important fact

If you reapply or appeal your denial, think about this important fact. People who are represented by a disability attorney like the one at disabilitycasereview.com, are approved more often than people without an attorney.

The best thing to do is to contact the disability attorney at disabilitycasereview.com, and have your case evaluated at no cost or obligation to you.
