This Man No Longer Stresses About Military Shaved Head Regulations, Thanks to Dr. Bumpinator’s AKN Removal

This gentleman, a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, developed AKN bumps on the back of his scalp. Due to military shaved head requirements, these tissue lesions became a major source of distress. After undergoing failed treatment at a different provider, he then decided to seek help from none other than Dr.Bumpinator himself.

 

 

Before Photos – A Growing AKN Problem Prevents This Patient From Having A “Career Must” Military Crew Cut

Acne Keloidalis Nuchae bumps started to grow and merge on the lower part of this patient’s scalp, forming an awkward-looking region of thick, bumpy collagen.

Contrary to urban myth, this had nothing to do with dirty clippers. According to Dr. Bumpinator, AKN is a genetically predisposed condition that causes the skin to react adversely to a close razor shave.

Due to his Acne Keloidalis Nuchae lesion, this patient would not be able to wear his hair short, according to military shaved head requirements. His condition became an issue for his career path in the military.

Although another provider had prescribed Accutane, a toxic oral medication recommended for acne vulgaris (i.e., common acne), this treatment did not eliminate this patient’s AKN bumps.

One of the reasons why Dr.Bumpinator succeeds in permanently removing AKN where others fail is that he classifies each patient case to pair them with the right surgical method. He can achieve permanent, long-term remission (i.e., bumps do not come back), whereas standard conventional treatments only keep the AKN at bay.

For this particular patient case, Dr.Bumpinator decided to apply a surgical technique that he developed at his clinic, along with a proprietary tool that he invented [1]. Here he is at work.

Frequently Asked Questions – Needing to Meet Military Crew Cut Regulations? What to Know About Treating Acne Keloidalis Nuchae

Why do drugs not work for treating AKN?

Acne Keloidalis Nuchae is a condition where the skin overreacts and profusely produces collagen. Drugs can’t subtract or eliminate this unwanted tissue. They can only address the issue of inflammation and symptoms of discomfort, such as pain, itching, and swelling.

It seems that everyone says that dirty razor clippers cause razor bumps and Acne Keloidalis Nuchae.  Is this actually true?

AKN can develop whether or not the clippers used are clean or dirty. The real cause is not bacteria or microbes but how your skin reacts to the ingrowth of hair. This response is different from person to person and determined by genetics.

Are there any at-home treatments or over-the-counter products that can help with AKN?

Unfortunately no. Again, Acne Keloidalis Nuchae is really a condition that is contingent on how your skin behaves and responds to ingrown hair shafts. No topical treatment, kitchen ingredient, or DIY formulation can change this.
