Hi hun, Im not a profesional nor do I have similar markings to you but I read your post. In the late summer early fall my head became extremely itchy and I would scratch it constantly, after a few months I started noticing I had lost quite a bit of hair. I started reading up on it. And thought it might be dermatitis or tinea capitis. After I star red accutane I became concerned with one of the side effects being hair loss so I booked an appt with my MD. She told me to pick up Nizoral. I did and it worked, I also ordered Nioxin scalp recovery and I use the serum multiple times a day. My scalp gets a little itchy from time to time because of the dryness from the accutane but at first it was soo much better. I think it is definitely not a waste of time and money to see a derm. They have probably seen what you have many times before- once you have a diagnosis you can go from there! When I googled the suspected condition acne. Org popped up on my google search with forums dating back to 2011 on this topic- so you will probably find a lot of helpful info there regarding what's been tried and what worked. But definitely go see a derm, it sounds like you are very dedicated to taking care of yourself and you should be afforded the derm visit with the assistance of your family! Also, you might want to consider eliminating all sugars from your diet- processed, natural raw, cane juice and fruits for a month and see if it helps as they are the solution to issues with candida! It's a very tough diet, as you'll find if you try it, everything has sugar, even good foods at health stores.
Good luck Hun!
Thankyou so much for the input. I bought 2% Nizoral cream today, will patch test it, and then try it out. If it doesn't work I guess I'll convince my parents to take me to a dermatologist, it's looking like the only option right about now. Thanks again

I bought Nizoral a while ago but only started using it 4/5 days ago (not sure why). Let me just say I am SO happy, I think for the first time in my life I correctly self diagnosed myself with fungal folliculitis. The bumps have significantly reduced, my forehead is less red and just generally less inflamed. Today I bought a 2% ketoconazole shampoo (Sebizol) to treat my itchy scalp, as well as the bumps on my back and chest. If your forehead or any other parts of your body (most commonly back, chest, jawline) looks anything like mine there is a GOOD chance it is pityosporum folliculitis, and you can try out a topical cream/shampoo with ketoconazole. This is not regular acne and will only be irritated with conventional acne treatments (trust me, I tried every product and natural remedy there is which only made things worse).
Thanks so much for your advice KrisNicky.

I have a similar problem and would also be keen to see how you go using Nizoral. Might try it myself.
All the best
