it could just be an overgrowth of a normal skin/head yeast called pityrosporum. it is very common in women and usually on the hairline and forehead. you can try treating it with an over the counter nizoral/ketoconazole hair wash. good luckView Thread
not sure if you will see this a year later but it sounds like it isnt acne for a yeast overgrowth from your hairline. this is common especially in females. the yeast is called pityrosporum and it can be treated with a simple nizoral(ketoconazole)/antifungal hair wash which can be purchased over the counter. Good luck
on a side note - if you have gone to a dermatologist regarding your acne would you do me a huge favor and complete a 7-question anonymous survey for me? there is a google doc link at dermsurvey.blogspot.com and it should take you less than a minute to complete. Thanks!View Thread
