Possible Testosteron: You may have symptoms of androgen (male hormone) excess. These may cause acne, and alopecia. Check MD for testosterone levels, if not on the pill which reduces it, and be checked for the many causes, often PCOS or an drenal source.

Infection can cause: dandruff/hair loss/ acne. For instance, if you have ringworm infection hair loss and bald spots can develop. It is necessary to treat the infection with an antifungal medication. A topical or oral treatment may be required. Only then can healthy hair grow and cover the bald spots. See a Dermatologist who can evaluate your scalp and give you proper therapy
