I need more information about your symptoms to guide you better.
sure, what kind of info is required from me
What is your age?
Since when do you have the acne?
since, 10 - 12 years of age
Do you have similar acne at other areas apart from the forehead?
just in the scalp
Do you get these in the scalp?
sometimes it grows and sometimes it subsides
When do they subside?
now and then
Any correlation with menstrual periods?
sorry, I am a male
Sorry about that
Do you get dandruff?
not flaky dandruff
it come along with the sebum
I think that dandruff maybe correlated with the acne.
Mostly you need to use mild shampoo for washing hair
which shampoo i can use
currently i am using head and shoulders
Is there pus coming out of the acne?
when it bursts and not everytime
Please suggest me an alternative mild shampoo
Is head and shoulders working for you?
Doctor, I have to go for a meeting. In the meanwhile, can you please suggest an appropriate remedy to my prevailing condition
I think that you discontinue the anti-dandruff shampoo.
please suggest the alternative one
Instead take a baby shampoo.
Like XXXXXXX baby shampoo
XXXXXXX and johnson?
twice a week
I think antidandruf shampoo is altering your normal flora.
I can oil the hair before shampooing right
Secondly thing you can do is wash your hair with clean water.
I think you should refrain from oil till the acne subside.
It can make acne worse.
I think clean water from a good water purifier should work.
you do not need to add dettol to it.
You can also use anti-acne cream on the acne.
on the scalp?
Specifically on the acne to reduce the bacteria in them.
Ok thanks doctor
Not on the whole scalp.

Hope I could help.
is there any other shampoo apart from baby shampoo is suggested?
Yes you can use any non-medicated shampoo like tressame.
