Treating oily scalp?

No matter how well I wash my head even with prescribed shampoo from my doctor, my scalp is almost always oily and gets into my hair and on my face meaning I have to wash pretty much daily :/ so if anyone has any recommendations for either or it'd be very much appreciated cause I'm going mad!

Also throwing this question in here - is it normal for your scalp to feel rather tender and "bumpy" with PCOS or should I seek doctor's advice?

Has anyone tried Saxenda?

My Dr would like me to try Saxenda on a low dose and has arranged for me to try a sample. She said it is for weightloss and will definitely help me lose weight and help with sugar cravings as it changes and corrects your metabolism.

She has tried it herself and lost weight while on it. She’s given me some pamphlets to read but I’m wondering if anyone else has tried it?

I don’t have a huge amount to lose (around 5-10kgs) but it won’t shift, no matter what I do. When I didn’t carry this… read more

Letting boyfriend in on the secret

I have been diagnosed PCOS for almost 6 years. Since then I have had severe, dark and coarse hair pretty much all over me that I can never really deal with. I also have to shave my face every day, sometimes a couple times a day. I’m terrified that my boyfriend will not find me attractive anymore and leave me due to this side effect of the disease. How did you let your significant others in on it? Any tips on how to handle this problem?
