Please Help in General acne discussion Posted February 23, 2014 After doing a lot of research, I come to the conclusion that it could be pityrosporum folliculitis. I do have oily skin and I am almost certain it's not ance and I have taken allergy pills which did nothing. I still haven't heard from the derm yet but I found out that Nizoral might work. I went to the drug store last night and you do not even need a prescription to buy it! I will try this for a week and give an update. To Lynn: It is itchy not flaky, and it's not painful.
