FAQ – Commonly Asked Questions Regarding AKN
How do I tell if it is AKN, Acne, or Barber’s Rash?
When you have small bumps on the back of your head or scalp, it could be several conditions. Although AKN is not acne or Barber’s Rash, it is a condition that is very similar to it. Yet AKN, unlike acne or barber’s rash, can quickly worsen and develop into something that is much more painful, large, and hard to manage.
In summary, it is best to consult with a qualified AKN specialist such as Dr. U to see what you have and to conclude the best treatment methods.
What causes AKN?
Many rumors have spread around the internet about how dirty razors or shears cause AKN. Many people mistakenly believe that AKN is a form of “barber’s rash.”
This is not true. Recent research states that the root cause of AKN is folliculitis. In plain terms, folliculitis is a condition of ingrown hairs that grow back into the hair root or follicle, irritating it. Although modern medicine and science are still studying the root cause of AKN extensively, it is widely concluded by doctors and scientists that AKN stems from this folliculitis and the body or scalp’s inflammation as a response to it.
In summary, AKN is caused due to ingrown hair inflaming the hair follicle.
When is the best time to see a Dermatologist for AKN?
AKN is a complicated and relatively new condition. Diagnosing AKN immediately as soon as possible is crucial to prevent it from getting worse and more unmanageable. Coming to the right skin specialist who knows how to treat AKN effectively is also critical.
