I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain pimples can occur due to a number of causes like Hormonal imbalances, oily skin, clogged pores, hormonal imbalances, inflammation, infection etc..
I would suggest you to wash your face with Salicylic acid and glycolic acid containing facewash, apply creams or ointment containing Benzoyl Peroxide and Clindamycin..
Apply Adapelene gel at night..
Do cool compresses on face..
Exfoliate your skin twice a week..
For scalp apply shampoo containing Salicylic acid and take a long course of antibiotics after consulting a Dermatologist..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
