My forehead is slightly oily with loads of acne breakouts ,

Customer Question

My forehead is slightly oily with loads of acne breakouts , I have tried glycolic peels and water based creams from skin clinic that worked for a while but they are appearing again. When I scratch my scalp I get white flakes so I am wondering whether this is caused by Dandruff/dry scalp or oily scalp ? Ive never had spots before in my life its only bin 6 months now , please help ?
