Hi there, it's been a long time since I wrote for the last time on here but I'm back.
I'll try to sum up as much as I can, though this story is really long.
Ok, first of all I want to say I've had acne on my body since I was like 12 but I didn't have anything on my head before. It started when I shaved my head a year ago -it was my first time I did it as well-. After a while my head began to itch and to scratch (just on my nape). but it wasn't until like 3 months after shaving I went to the dermatologist. He told me it was folliculitis and sent me mupirocin ointment and trimethoprim to take and everthing disappeared.
After that, I started an isotretinoin treatment for general acne and I didn't feel anything till 6 months later after I ended with this treament. Since there, all has been a nightmare; I've had like 3 breakouts on my head again, I've treated them with the same drugs but in the last one -now- It hasn't worked totally; I got some red marks on my head plus the itching feeling, even when I have no pimples with pus. The itching is stronger at nights so I haven't been able to sleep well lately and now It has spread for almost all my head. I tried with fusidic acid but it was worse, so what I'm doing now is just applying some alcohol 70, -I read I can help- but the problem's still there. I've seen that using a good shampoo is important too but in fact I don't know what kind of shampoo I should use.
I'll see the doctor on next Tuesday. but in the mean time I'd like you to help me.
Please,I need help from people who have had a similar disease, this thing has been almost as bad as acne on my face. I can't even brush my hair properly and I decided to grow out my hair and now I'm afraid that I have to cut it again.
Thanks for reading and sorry for the mistakes in writing.
