i got way skinnier, but my head is still the same, which is bigger than my body. I smoke often, marijuna only. I feel like i can't get bigger, or at least the size to fit my head. Is it because of the marijuna? what should i do?

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Pimples are multi factorial, with reasons ranging from wrong selection of cream and soaps to internal hormonal disturbances(esp in females).You should avoid all oily stuff on your face right from oily soaps to moisturizing creams.
You have two options –either oral retinoids or oral antibiotics depending upon the severity. They need to be taken for long .Also use a good anti acne soap daily. You should also use anti acne creams like nadifloxacin or clindamycin.All these require a medical prescription and you should show to a dermatologist for this.
Drink plenty of water and take a god 7 hr sleep in night .Never squeeze your pimples or else they would leave marks.Food doesn't have a great role in treating or preventing acne ,so don't bother much for that.You would surely get good result if you consult a good dermatologist.

the cause for the eruptions is because the skin is not clean. try washing the skin 2 or three times a day. not to use hard soap. use soft and mild cleansers. always use warm water to wash face. give steam to the face skin. it will open the pores and will wash out the deep dirt accumulated in the skin. apply lemon extract to the regions of skin which is very much oily leave it for 5 minutes and wash of with warm water.

ya the tea treee oils faceawshes are good, it really reduced my acne. also i went for a anti pmple traetment in a baeuty parlor, they did some lotus treatment for me, after which th eruptions are much less, almost 50%. and skin also feels better.

did u try some acne skin medicines like erythromycin lotion or cream. Diet change has indirect effect only. Most important is correct skin cleaning regime. that is washing your face 2-3 times in a day with a face wash that suits you. A face wash with green tea extract and lemon worked very well for me. I could feel my skin to be much less oily.
