I never have had a problem with acne but now for almost a year now i have been getting pimples on my head. The really wierd thing is that they rarley are on my face. The have been poppin up in my hair. Now if i had long hair i wouldn't mind but i keep my hair short and they are somtimes visable. Usually they are on the side or the back. I have changed lawndry detergants, fabric softners, shampoos, changing pillow cases daily but nothing works.

I was wondering if anyone had any idea what is causing this or anything i could do to prevent it.

Are you sure that they're pimples? Maybe you need to go see a dermatologist and get the bumps diagnosed. Perhaps they're lice, or parasites or an infection ... you'll never really know until you get it checked out.
