    Dandruff, Oily Hair and Acne Issues

    In the past few months, I've noticed severe acne on my forehead and dandruff on my head. I also have somewhat oily hair. I've read that the oils produced on the top of the head and by our hair can impact acne on the forehead. I'm thinking about tackling my hair problems first to reduce the acne on my forehead before seeing a doctor. Do you think this is a good idea? I wrote three sections below. Kindly make any suggestions and/or statements about my "future routine" for hair....

    Zit Like Bumps on Legs

    So I have had these bumps on my legs for a couple weeks now. They itch. First I only had 3 right in a row on my upper thigh and urgent care said they didn't look too concerning. Those went away, but then I got more of them. Mostly all over my legs, occasionally a couple on my arms. They are red or skin toned, about the size and consistency of a zit, and they itch. Sometimes I notice I'm fine or that there are less bumps, sometimes they itch bad (maybe gets worse at night?) Some of my thoughts....

    Does it matter if I pick a urologist with 40 vs. 13 years experience for a complex penile issue?

    I'm 27. I did permanent damage to the mucosa of my circumcised penis in a very dumb, overzealous foreskin restoration stretch of the skin using medical tape at the age of 18. It's going to require surgery of some sort to make aesthetically pleasing. Does it matter if I go with a doctor with 13 years experience, 37 years or 40 years? Those are my options. Would more experience help in providing a better solution, if a solution at all? I'm just re-posting this from the Men's Health....

    Used to be symmetrical

    Just at the end of last year my face was perfectly symmetrical, everything was aligned and perfect. But now the right side of my face is slightly lower than my left and my mouth is a bit longer on one side then the other. My mandible bone is also slightly tilted. Can this be fixed with age? And will it stay Or is this just my face trying to grow longer (I'm 15)

    Red blotches appeared on the arch of my foot?

    Hello! I recently noticed red blotches on the arches of my feet. They mirror each other on each foot. They aren't particularly raised, they aren't itchy. I can't seem to find any similar results online except that it might be some type of foot fungus that came from my shoes I was wearing? I've included photos along with this.

    Suspected Folliculitis and Prescriptions in a Foreign Land

    Hello, I'm from Canada and currently working in Tunisia. For the past 2 weeks I've been dealing with what I'm self-diagnosing as folliculitis. The location is the upper inside of my thigh. I've posted a photo, but the photo doesn't do it quite enough justice. To my eyes, the bump seems to be looking bruised in the center. I have not tried to squeeze or 'pop' this. It's very sensitive to touch and it's getting to the point where even the legs of my pants rubbing....

    Strange Red "Spot"

    I just noticed a strange red mark on my right, pinky-finger. I never really noticed it before and it doesn't hurt or anything. It's slightly tender, puffy, and has slight "depth" to it; meaning it's "raised up" like a bump but not that extreme. I also see no bite marks or puncture wounds. It's MINUTELY itchy and only when I think about it, also it's "shedding" ever so slightly. Ive never experienced anything like this, especially on my fingers. The....

    How to stop static hair after straightening?

    After straightening, my hair becomes too static. It`s one of my biggest hair problems to strike, especially in winter. Hair is so staticky that I could hardly style it. Static ruins it all!

What should I do to handle it? It really gets annoying!

    Red bumps on skin. Only itchy SOMETIMES. blistery-like

    Hello, I am wondering is someone can give me some info as to what this might be. I have been having some red bumps appear on my body. Mostly on ankles/feet, wrist/hands, lower back. Some are even on my tattoo's They all range in sizes and some are barely noticeable. Some days they are itchy and some not. I have been wondering if I had an allergic reaction to any types of foods I am eating. They don't really seem to be going away though. I have not ruled out bed bugs or scabies but from what....
