  5. I've been meaning to come here and report my findings in the hopes it will help others who struggle with acne, specifically cystic acne (though my findings may be helpful to everyone struggling with any kind of acne). About 4 years ago I started getting acne on the back of my head, and on my temples and forehead (I'm a bald 34 yr. old male btw).
