Always getting pus liquid pimples they hurt and they are on my face and scalp they cause my hair to fall out what can I do they are sore and real fill?

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. ...Read more

Doubtful: If you are having unprotected sex, then it is possible you are pregnant.

But there are other things that can throw your cycle off and cause your symptoms - illness, stress, change in diet, infection, thyroid problems. Recheck HPT in a week, and see doc if still negative. ...Read more

Always getting large deep pimples on my face and scalp they are hard and leave big holes how do I release the gunk and pressure they hurt?

Cystic acne: You describe cystic acne as a problem. You definitely do not want to "release the gunk" on your own as this will worsen the chances of scarring and infection. Combination therapy of an antibiotic to treat an underlying acne bacteria combined with an exfoliating topical treatment is warranted. Many primary care docs treat acne, so check with yours first.

Probably Infected: Its easy to introduce bacteria into the area when you pop a pimple, and this sounds like it is a small skin infection setting up, especially the warmth. Try some neosporin creme on it tonight and see how it looks in the morning. You may need an oral antibiotic if it worsens overnight. Good luck! ...Read more
