Although it is not always possible to prevent folliculitis, these measures may help:
Avoid constrictive clothing. Tight clothes especially jeans and athletic wear.
Shave with care. Use an electric razor or a new blade every time you shave. Be especially careful to keep the shaved area clean and to avoid cuts and nicks.
Clean your hot tubs or swimming pools regularly and add chlorine when recommended. Use commercial tubs only if you are sure they are well maintained.
- Avoid contaminated clothing and wash cloths.
