Extremely oily skin
Sep 26, 2008
Hello, I am 22 years old and although I do not have a big acne problem, I have extremely oily skin. I constantly need to wash it and apply all sorts of otc products in order to make sure I don't break out (mostly whiteheads.) I feel gross all the time because of this oily skin. I'll shower and not even 8 hours later I can tell my scalp feels greasy, my back, my face within even 30 minutes..

I don't know what to do. It's not just restricted to my face area, but the upper half of my body, upper arms, back, chest, neck. I am looking for something that would help me with this problem. I do not think I need a cream because it's not just my face, and this is coming from within my body. I heard there's a medication, I forget what it is called, but it's prescribed off label for acne problems, i think it's a diuretic.

Does anyone have this problem and what did you do for it? I wake up in the morning and it's like I slept in a bucket of olive oil. And if I don't constantly blot and wash my face, I break out in whiteheads due to this oil production.
