I wonder if there's some medicine i can take as my skin is very oily especially my scalp and face? or is it a diet thing and just avoid oily food? which i did already but it seems not working?

In brief: OILY SKIN FACE SCALP

WASH YOUR FACE WITH AN ACNE WASH.
SHAMPOO YOUR HEAD ONCE DAILY WITH A TAR SHAMPOO. CUT DOWN ON ALL NUTS, CHOCOLATE, AND DAIRY PRODUCTS FOR TWO OR THREE WEEKS. SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IF NO BETTER, PLEASE SEE A DERMATOLOGIST. BEST LUCK.
