Super frustrated with it for the past few years. I wonder if it's a rare thing or in general, do people have it? How can someone get rid of it?

    If youโ€™re a guy and you cut your hair really short, especially around the neck line, then donโ€™t.

      Causes inflammation by the roots of the follicles and allows bacteria to get in

  • Go see a doctor/dermatologist. I had SEVERE flakey/acne-ridden scalp for a few months and got prescription shampoo that worked like magic. And then always use dandruff shampoo cuz apparently it's great for scalp.

    It might be folliculitis. First action would be to figure out if it's bacterial or fungal. Whatever the doctor give will just treat it temporarily and it'll come back stronger. Maintain healthy diet and exercise regularly; helped me much more than any medicine. Cut back on oil, dairy, meat and have fresh vegetables. Wash hair daily with baby shampoo to prevent outbreaks.

      And don't touch those pustules. They spread around quickly. Apply clindamycin lotion for five days twice daily on any pustule which hurts more or looks like becoming a carbuncle. Do continue it for 5 days to prevent anti biotic resistance.

    Do you have scalp psoriasis? I am suffering from it and it's really frustrating.

    I typically only get it when I don't wash my hair for several days. Goes away in a day after I wash it.

    Ketoconazole & Zinc Pyrithione lotion is very helpful to prevent itchiness and decrease the acne on scalp.
    Apart from this lotion you can use Tea Tree shampoo; it really helps you through out the day.
    Apart from the shampoo, change your diet and oil your scalp if it's dry as f**k
