Doctor can evaluate: A primary care doctor can examine the skin and hear the whole story, to see if such pimples are treatable by the usual acne medications, versus some other type of skin infection or skin disorder. The infection or the inflammation at the site of the pimples is probably causing the hair to fall out, so a dermatologist (skin specialist) may be helpful... as we hope there can be hair regrowth.
