Thanks for posting your query.
Scalp acne are mainly caused by hormonal fluctuations in the body causing excessive oil production. Scalp folliculitis, poor hygiene conditions, inadequate diet requirements, heredity, seasonal changes, sun exposure and high stress levels may also be responsible for these. For treatment-
1)Clean your scalp with a product which contains salicylic acid with the help of a cotton ball or wool.
2)Use a mild shampoo to wash your hair more frequently.
3)For mild acne on the scalp, shampoo regularly with a shampoo for oily hair.
4)Anti dandruff shampoos like ketoconazole or ciclopirox when used with an effective conditioner, act a good acne scalp shampoo.
5)Sometimes medications like oral antibiotics, oral topical steroids and topical antibiotics are also needed. You can get these prescribed from your dermartologist after proper examination.
For heaviness in the stomach, digestive ezymes and avoiding oily and spicy food will help you.
For specific treatments in ayurveda, i suggest you to consult a specialist as proper treatment needs a detailed examination.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
