I had acne on my forehead since I was 14 I went on the combined pill which solved it and was taken off due to a blood clot and then was put on lymecycline and no spots returned . I stopped lymecycline autumn last year . The last 2 month my skin has been very problematic . I started getting spots in my hairline , the under the skin red sort and it’s not spread back to my forehead . I had a skin infection a month ago which also flared up my skin . I also have scaly and flaky skin which I have never had before . I haven’t changed my skin care routine and I really need advice on what to do . Thanks :)

Thank you for your question. Ask your dermatologist for Roacutane treatment for acne. It sounds like you also have seborrheic dermatitis, so you may also need ketoconazole cream or shampoo.
I hope this is helpful.
