Acne on your scalp? Can you post pictures? Sounds like folliculitis.

I've no pictures, it's all covered by my hair. I haven't had a transplant, been on finesteride for the last 14-15 yrs. Just wondered what there a shampoo that helps, notice the same on my face as well where hair grows, so I'm sure it's all to do with trapped follicles or something.

Can anyone recommend a shampoo that helps with scalp acne?

Gettin a lot of breakouts. In my 40's, thought I'd be done with acne at this stage 🤣

My doctor recommended to apply Benzoyl peroxide (OTC) @ night and rubbing Bar Soap to the acne area before the shower. It really worked for me.
