I've been shaving my head for a few months when I was taken ill and had to go into hospital for a few weeks. I wasn't really up to shaving my head (felt too poorly) but did not like the way my hair was growing out to the longest it had been in years.
When I finally left hospital one of the first things I did was shave my head and all was OK for a couple of days, then I noticed LOTS of little bumps on the top of my head and the back and especially behind the ears. I stopped shaving and the bumps turned into little pimples filled with pus and they itched like hell and it took a lot of self control not to scratch them.
Went to my doctor who told me it was folliculitis and he gave me some antibiotics for a week, there was a slight improvement (no pus pimples) just the bumps again but a couple of days after finishing the tablets the pimples came back.
Saw the doctor again and he gave me a two week course of a much stronger antibiotic and also some antibacterial wash. Now almost at the end of these tablets the spots are much better and drying up and fading, I finally dared to clean my clipper blades and a guide in alcohol and gave myself a short (No. 1) buzz cut.
The bumps are still there and still drying out, when should I be able to start shaving again?
