welcome to health care magic.
1.One effective way to deal with scalp acne is to shampoo more often than you used to with the use of benzoyl peroxide Cleaning the scalp with products containing salicylic acid using cotton ball or wool is also an effective way to treat scalp acne.
2.Another scalp acne cure is by using mild shampoo as well as frequently washing the hair.
Ketoconzaole or ciclopirox is also effective for mild cases of acne on the scalp.
There are times when oral medications such as antibiotics and topical steroids can also help treat acne on scalp problems As hormones fluctuate, there is an increase of oil being secreted from the sebaceous gland. It allows dirt to accumulate in the pores and results to pimples.
Stress. Too much stress can alter as well the normal balance of hormones of an individual.

When experiencing a breakout, the best way to deal with it is to apply hot compress. That way, a blind pimple can be able to grow a head and eventually come out.
Wash your face once in a while to remove accumulated dust and dirt.
Avoid using too much makeup. If you are just going out for a grocery, you need not put on makeup.
Dealing with acne, pricking an irritated or inflamed papule would just make it worse.

Start a zinc supplement. Zinc is a very effective treatment for acne. Rich food sources of zinc are – nuts and legumes.
Cinnamon : Cinnamon has strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Pound cinnamon and apply it over the affected area. It will help clear up the face successfully. Even applying a drop of cinnamon oil over the pimples speeds up healing.
