I am a long time lurker, first time poster. I am a 32 yr old male battling scalp acne, and acne in general (chest, neck, face) for the past 1.5 years. Last time I had it before that was in my teens. I have on Minocycline for the past year. It helped but did not cure. I went to a Naturopath in Jan this year. Changed diet, took vitamins, etc. It helped but did not cure.
I woke up last week with 15-20 pimples on my scalp.
Things I have tried...
minocycline, BP, salasylic acid, apple cider vinegar, cetaphil for oily skin (helping my face a lot), head and shoulders, nizoral, manuka honey, witch hazel, tea tree oil. currently on probiotics for last 3 months.
I am meeting my family doctor on Tuesday. Probably need a referral to a new derm. My last derm said Accutane was my only other option - which I would rather not entertain especially at my age.
Anyone else going through similar?
