PCOS, androgenic hair loss, scalp pimples with pus. Taking Flagyl for c Diff. Topical medication?

I'm 22, and my OB/Gyn confirmed I have PCOS. He told me I have androgenic hair loss. I'm back on my Yasmine, but my hair continues to excessively fall out. Now I have scalp pimples on my scalp, above my ears. These pimples contain thick pus. By the way, I had C Diff this summer and was on Flagyl for 10 days, and have remained negative. Is there something topical I can take for the pimples? I cannot go on oral antibiotics.

Thanks for your query.
You can definitely use topical treatment for the acne.
Topical isotretinoin ( vitamin A derivatives ) and local combinations of clindamycin are generally prescribed.
It is better to consult a dermatologist and have a prescription.
Use isotretinoin only if you are not planning to conceive.
Also, do not touch the pimples at all.
Keep the area clean and dry ( use Cetaphil face cleanser )
Avoid oily stuff in your food.
Take care.
