I have a suggestion for you. If you want to try it great if not thats ok too. I have the same problem. When I am very anxious or stressed I get all these bumps in my hair and they pop and are so oily and nasty. I tried all the prescriptions the doctors gave me but nothing seemed to help. I started to do research and found something that helps keep it at bay for longer periods of time. I went to the health food store and bought some pure coconut oil. Not the kind they cook all the good stuff out of but just the natural oil of the coconut. It comes in a 48 oz. tub. Before I shower and wash my hair I put this on my scalp and let it sit like a conditioner for about 15 to 20 minutes. I am not saying it keeps them away forever but there are longer periods of time without them and they are fewer than they used to be. You can use coconut oil all over your body as well it works to help cure sores and scratches all over. the literature on it says it works like a natural antibiotic, antifungal agent. I am just happy I found something that helps even a little bit. Hope it works for you all as well. Best WishesView Thread
