Hey,I'm new here so if this in the wrong place or I'm doing something wrong let me know.

 

Ive suffered from acne in and around my scalp area,as well as on my face and back since i was 13 i am now 21,my face and back have cleared up well in the last few years,but the scalp issue will not leave me.

 

I have been on a number of medications since this start including,erythromycin,isoterin,doxycyline for a number of rounds (i may be forgetting some others )as well as accutane (I feel this is what really helped my back and face although i hope to not need to go through that again :( ) also a number of different cream and liquids for my scalp nothing seems to have a lasting effect !!

 

Im just here for advice what can i do i feel like I've tried everything and nothing works i don't want to live with this anymore, I get anxiety every time i need to go to the barbers i have horrid nightmares of them turning me away and of my scalp tearing off,this is has started affecting me mentally and the doctors don't seem to be helping me like they should.

 

Has anyone else got this issue, what has worked for them ? Is there anything new treatment wise i could mention to my doctor anything they are not checking that i could ask them to test for ? 

 

Have tried to upload a pictures of the damage,they should be attached .

Dude you need accutane! Those pimples seem to be cystic from the pictures. Only drug that can truly fix it internally.

No, it isn't cystic acne i think but accutane would solve that.

well looks like he might of been picking at least. Either way its an internal thing and accutane will help it. It sucks but thats the solution really.
