Acne of the scalp: What causes it?

Patient: Acne in my scalp? What causes this?

 

 

Doctor: Acne is caused by blocked pores and when these pores get infected it leads to Acne. There is bacterial involvement in th e same. The way to avoid it is to regulary clean your scalp to avoid sebum build up and clogged pores. I hope this helps.
