In brief: Irritable bowel

IBS or irritable bowel syndrome can be a miserable illness.
Hopefully you have a GI doc who can help guide you along. You may be malnourished from all the diarrhea/pain/malabsorption you've suffered through. That could certainly affect hair growth and affect the immune system (weakening it) allowing acne to form. Raw almonds are good for healthy hair. Keep hands away from face to reduce acne.
