Is Folliculitis Contagious ? The answer should come as no shock to anyone who understands anything about this skin condition: yes, folliculitis is not only contagious, but highly so.
If you live with someone that has been diagnosed with folliculitis, you have to keep in mind the following guidelines to try and avoid infection:
- Do not share your towels or your undergarments.
- Do not have skin – on – skin contact with the infected person.
- Avoid sleeping in the same sheets.
- Avoid using the same bathtub or hot tub right after they have used it.
