Doctor: Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.Usually pimples does not appear over the scalp. So there is no role of usi ng BPO. It appears that you are having bacterial infection of scalp skin . This may be because of improper cleaning of scalp skin. My advice wash your scalp with a good quality antibacterial shampoo.Hope this will give you relief.
