Pimples and dandruff
It's been around 8 months since my skin started breaking out. Many small bumps arise in my skin every now and then, which later turn into pimples and leave ugly marks that refuse to go away. Of late I am also experiencing dandruff problem, my scalp becomes itchy at times and also scaly. Are pimples and dandruff related? I would like to know what would reduce my pimples and the scars. Please help.
