I am 26 years old female itchy flaky inflamed scalp .Bleed on scratching. Using ketoconazole not effective .Oily skin type what to do?
I'm 15 yrs old and I have oily skin, but almost no acne of sort. During the day my skin gets an oil cover. And even washing it doesn't exactly help. I don't eat any oily foods in particular. So what are the most effective foods I can eat to combat the issue? Or any practice that may help. I'm not looking for any prescribed medication. Just easy to go to diets and practices.
Acne, also known as pimples, is a skin disorder caused due to inflammation in the skin's hair follicles and sebaceous glands. Acne may also cause permanent scars on your skin. It usually occurs in teenagers going through puberty due to the production of high levels of hormone that clog pores. Many women also get premenstrual acne which, as the name suggests, are caused after ovulation due to excessive release of progesterone. Most pimples are found on the face, shoulders, back, chest and neck. Apart from hormones, pimples are also caused due to genes, amassing of dead skin cells, bacteria, birth control pills, certain medications, greasy medication and so on. Although acnes do not pose a serious risk to your health, it may cause scars and look displeasing. There are many different types of acne such as acne vulgaris, baby acne, acne rosacea, acne cosmetic, chloracne, acne medicamentosa, etc.
