Scalp Breakouts: Cause and treatment

Acne shows not only in your face, back, armpits, but it can also be present in your scalp. This is what you have to do to get rid of scalp breakouts.

Acne is annoying wherever the place they appear, but when it comes down to the scalp, it gets quite uncomfortable. Just like good old pimples, scalp acne is caused by oil and dead skin cells that clog your hair follicles. This is what you can do to get rid of it.

1. Wash your hair

Wash your hair often.

If your hair tends to be oily, scalp acne is quite likely to appear. To get rid of excess oil, look for shampoos with salicylic acid, coal tar, or cortisone to get rid of the excess oil production. 

2. Leave it alone

Try not to touch, scratch, and pick at your pimples -this will only lead in further irritation. 

3. Exfoliate

Yes, you can exfoliate your scalp once a week to get rid of dead skin cells. 

4. Stay away from oils

Say away from oil.

Oils are not for you -coconut oil, almond oil, or any other natural oil will probably make your hair more prone to acne.
