MalaCards: Folliculitis, also known as seborrheic dermatitis of scalp, is related to dermatitis and skin disease. An important gene associated with Folliculitis is DEFB4A (defensin, beta 4A), and among its related pathways are Signaling by NODAL and TGF-beta signaling pathway. The compounds anti-fungal and genistein have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone marrow and bone.
