I have never heard of that before. Have you tried a tea tree shampoo?

I don’t know about a tea per se, but there are many herbs that have anti-bacterial properties, and many that have anti-fungal properties. First make sure which kind of folliculitis he has (fungal or bacterial) and then google herbal anti-fungal or anti-bacterial tinctures. Since you are talking about a child, presumably, I wouldn’t actually apply any of these without talking to a qualified herbalist, though. Some herbs can have side-effects.

Tea tree oil is actually both anti fungal and bacterial from what I have read. :)
