  1. I am 29, female. I had acne on scalp, face and hair fall from 2009. I went to dermatologist and tried all. But no change. I read in this forum that Vitamin D can reduce acne. I also found that I am VIt D deficiency. So I took Vit D sachets this way. Each sachet has 60,000 IU 1st month: 1 sachet each week. 2nd month: 1 sachets in 2 weeks, so 2 sachets in a month 3rd month: 1 sachet a month After 3rd month I am continuing taking 1 sachet each month. At the end o
  2. Hi Everyone, Has anyone ever experienced scalp acne after starting a progestrone-based oral contraceptive? I was diagnosed with adenomyosis (a uterine condition) last year and was prescribed the said contraceptive as treatment. I noticed within a couple of months on the medication that I was breaking out on my face and had pimples all over my scalp. I started breaking out on my face with a few large pimples that took forever to heal and would leave behind red pigmentation in place of the
  3. Hi, just hoping to get the word out there to the medical and science world. It seems that no one realizes that DIMETHICONE and TRIMETHICONE are REALLLLLLLY horrible for some people's skin. I look it up online and it says safe enough for babies. But I would feel so sorry for any baby who is having the same reaction that I have to these silicones in the creams and moisturizers. Please know, that my own dermatologists just assumed I had rosacea for nearly 20 years. They put me on a daily regim
  4. Folks, I've had this condition for years and on early days visited several dermatologists who said it is and gave me medication and special shampoo but nothing ever worked. I am in my 30's now and still has this issue. These are pictures from my scalp, at the moment my scalp is very itchy. I also have a similar condition with beards, shaving them is a terrifying experience as painful pimples appear immediately, but keeping them long also is difficult to maintain and not pain f
  5. Hi all, I'm Carly I'm new to the site and wanted to share my experience to gather advice and find people who have had similar issues and thus find out if and how they've treated it. So right now I'm suffering with some pretty nast scalp acne/scalp folliculitas. I've combed the internet for answers and there just seems to be som much conflicting info on the subject that I either end up baffled or horrified!!!! Here's my background. I'm 30 year old female, suffered with moderate to sev
  6. Hello everyone, time has come to make a post, hoping someone could give some directions or tips. About me: Male, 26 years old. Sensitive skin. Lifestyle: Work with computer, but love to exercise, mostly - running. Acne type: Mostly - blackheads and blackheads that turn in to whiteheads. Whiteheads can show up really fast and are filled with loads of white puss. They pop really easy and also heal pretty quickly. Since they are on top of surface, I get no scaring. No cystic acne for me.
  7. Since high school, I was never really the guy with too much acne on the face. It happened here and there, but never enough to cause concern. It was always on my back and shoulders and chest. Fast forward many years and now I'm 30 years old. The Backne never went away. My chest and shoulders enjoy playing tag. One month it'll be my chest, next month those will clear up and it'll be my shoulders. The back however looks like a minefield (after the battle). There are literally thousands of s
  8. Does anyone suffer from scalp acne? i do, what shampoo do you use? My dermatologist gave me 2 different types of shampoos but they didnt work out very well :/
  9. So I'm on day 15 of 40mg of accutane. I started taking accutane for my back acne. My scalp before accutane was normal, but I would get a few pimples on my neck sometimes. Right now my scalp looks like crap. Is this a initial breakout or something more serious. If something less serious what shampoos/conditioners/vitamins should I be using. I posted a picture for reference. Also, I got a haircut a week ago and that really seem to aggravate it. <a href="http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/Sa
  10. 2 Week, Highly Effective, cheap oral treatment for Rosacea caused by demodex skin Mites. There are 2 kinds of human demodex. The mites eat skin oil. Demodex Brevis live down in the oil glands. Demodex Folliculorum live in the follicles. When the mites die off they make pustules, papules and cysts. The mites live and die on a 2 to 3 week life cycle which may make the acne appear cyclical. Because of the cyclical nature, it frequently gets misdiagnosed as hormonal acne. Demodex can liv
  11. 4 Basic causes of Acne (and some types of Rosacea) - make sure your dermatologist tests you to verify which type you have. The treatment for each type is completely different. Correct diagnosis of the cause is important to clear the skin condition. Demodex skin mites are the most under-diagnosed cause of acne for people of all ages. Some more enlightened dermatologists will test for the mites. Many old school dermatologists were taught in school, that the mites were harmless. As such man
  12. I've been battling acne since I was about 11. I'm now 26. I was on Accutane twice. It did clear me up. I was put on BC (Yaz) when I was 18 to keep it clear. Yaz gave me bad cramps so I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen. I was on that for a long time. I switched to Orsythia, thinking my skin needed a mono pill since I still had bouts of acne. My skin has seen good and bad days. However, since Accutane (I think) I have been battling scalp acne. My scalp acne honestly bothers me more than my face an
  13. First of all, I typically don't get involved in forums unless I feel very strongly about something and I have done my research. Secondly, I am a chemist, so feel like I have some background to talk on this topic. Thirdly, let me say I am ANGRY! I have been fighting cystic acne for most of my adult life (I am 44). I was constantly in the middle of a breakout, which were worse during "that time of the month." As soon as one flare up would clear, I'd be acne free for a day or two until the nex
  14. I'm a 23 year old male. I've been on Accutane 3 times throughout my life. 2 times during my teen years (facial acne), and also this past year I was on it for scalp issues. I was taking 80mg for 4 months and that cleared my scalp, but two months later, my scalp issues are coming back. It occurs all over my scalp but usually gets bad on the back of my scalp (just above the neck). I've also taken minocycline and doxycycline but it only helps for a little, which is why I ended up going on Accutane a
