My skin is pumping out oil like a crude oil refinery.
Its been getting progressively worse the last three months, and i dont know why. Its my skin, my hair.
Just 12 hours after a shower, i feel like i havent showered for a week or more.
I am getting more spots, i usually get none really, but now i keep getting them, especially painful ones, mainly on my scalp. I just dont get it, but there has to be something to it. I started methylation around December, could that be related to it in some way?
I dunno...

Im 30 by the way. I dont think my skin has ever been this oily before. Any ideas on causes and what this might signal?
