Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on scalp and hair loss


Avatar_f_tn The problem now is where the bumps are her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> is falling out. Bald spots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> each time I wash her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> I am getting more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> in my hands. We are african american and she has no chemicals in her hair. IS there anyone that can help. I am desperate and concerned that it's something more serious but I don't know where to take her.
Avatar_f_tn What causes a red, itchy pimple-like rash on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> with subsequent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>? I have been treated with Ketokonazole shampoo, steroid liquid applied to scalp, chemical- and fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner (Free & Clear), stopped coloring my hair, etc. and so far nothing has taken this away. I am now losing my hair! Can anyone help me?
Avatar_f_tn I have medium size bumps that have formed on my head.
Avatar_n_tn Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> may be due to underlying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> conditions. The most common scalp conditions that may be causing this are tinea capitis which is a fungal infection, seborrheic dermatitis and discoid lupus. In your case, oral medications such as griseofulvin or terbinafine may be able to help. Was a test done to ascertain that this is indeed a fungal infection?
Avatar_m_tn thinning of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> – especially when applying wax <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> showering, a lot will come out in my hands, also I will get 10+ strands if I run my hands through my hair a few times, I just notice hairs that have fallen quite a lot of the time – my hair is noticeably different to style & thinner.
Avatar_f_tn For the time being, try to pay attention to when you are doing the scratching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> picking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stop yourself. If you are at home, try wearing socks on your hands or a hat on your head because it is hard to scratch or pick at something that you can't get to. Sit on your hands if you have to. In the end though, I think you have issues that need to be talked out with some sort of counselor. Take care.
Avatar_f_tn My dermatologist prescribed steroids <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the rash went down, but the itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> flaking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> are still going on - three weeks later. I want to know if this is hormonal and stress-related (my job is requiring me to work 12-hour days and is a stressful PR position and I work a job on the weekends because my PR job doesnt pay what I owe in student loans) - this on top of having to deal with becoming pregnant (unplanned) and then losing that pregnancy.
Avatar_m_tn i have then gone to the institute of tricologist in London where the consultant has said that its not male pattern baldness as the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> is thinning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> being post on the top sides' <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said that it may be telegon effluviam and folliculitus which he gave me an iodine based shampoo to relieve the itch and pain.
Avatar_f_tn If so, that could be the cause of your itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>. Do you have an sores, dandruff, scaly patches or lesions on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> can be a symptom of lupus and in my experience, it tends to fall out in patches. It is definitely something you should mention to your doctor!
Avatar_n_tn Hello, Many people do not develop symptoms after they first get infected with HIV. Others have a flu-like illness within several days to weeks after exposure to the virus. Since you are not having any symptoms(other than the penile bumps which can be due to contact dermatitis or friction rub also), so chances of HIV are less likely. Confirmation is only done by specific tests for HIV like western blot,PCR and ELISA.
Avatar_f_tn I was have a lot of hair fall, the stylist was commenting on it always(every 4 weeks I was there for two more years). My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> hurt to move it, then itching an lymph notes started swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> bumps on my head(<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the lymph notes on top of my head). Last year I thought it might be the hair color. The dermatologist did not think so, suggested stop using so many hair products. Did not color for several months, lots of gray hair starting to come back in...even little short ones...
Avatar_f_tn I have small bumps with severe itching of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> along with sudden <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>, what could cause this? I was check for lice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fleas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have none, I do work in my plant garden alot but never find any bugs when washing hair. Any treatment you can give also please?
753983_tn?1233715768 I have bumps in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> above my ears on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>. Itching like mad. but if I sweat it gets soooo bad. Its burns like fire and itching makes me mad. dont have lice or dandruff on scalp. I do have a hot tub I have been in a few times this year. I keep it very clean and put new water in every 4 weeks.
73878_tn?1214056807 Not on treatment but would like to know if my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on going uniary trac infections are side affects of the Hep C. Any info would be helpful........
Avatar_n_tn You might want to try a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>, Skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Nail, vitamin combo. I purchase mine at wal-mart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it stopped my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. Mine was not from synthroid, though. It was from another medicine. But its worth a try.
Avatar_m_tn There seems to be a lot of things this could be, except that I don't have some key symptoms - big red rash, bumps/lesions, flaking, scaling, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> NO <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. Everything I find has this as a symptom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I don't -yet, knock on wood. The itching is driving me CrAzY! I haven't changed any soaps, shampoos, cleaners... I haven't starting or stopped doing anything new. I have not had a recent haircut or hair treatment that might be causing an allergic reaction.
Avatar_n_tn rarely do i get bumps on the head but now i see little red spots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> falling rapidly. my family (grand parents) have no history of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. i do have dry skin all over - knuckles, face etc. the dermatologist did not do any skin tests - just a look and tell. should i talk to some other doc? what could be causing all the hair loss. since i was 17, my hair has been thinning but now its been falling a lot faster. when i see a differnt doc, should i ask him todo any tests?
Avatar_f_tn I also noticed along with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>, that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> is extremely dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> brittle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> breaks easily. Recently they have become very bothersome. Could you please tell me what could this be, and what can I do for it? Is it possible that it could be folliculitis, or scalp dermatitis?
Avatar_m_tn I am DESPERATE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> experiencing SEVERE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>. It began almost 4 yrs ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am 42 years old. It has been VERY COSTLY to say the least in getting diagnosed so that I am able to begin my journey to recovery. I AM AT MY WITS END and the emotional toll this takes on a person is even worse than the torturous pain itself. I've had countless blood tests, no less than 6 cultures for Staph & Fungal infections, 3 scalp biopsy's and 3 strand tests.
Avatar_n_tn My scalp goes through cycles where it is beet red and burns like it is on fire. Sometimes there are bumps that develop. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span> accompanies these flare ups <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> since this one has lasted five months, my hair is getting very thin. I have been using prescription Nizoral shampoo daily, Betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% at night and have also been given Cleocin T, but it seemed to make my scalp burn worse, so it was discontinued. Dr said it was hemorrhagic dermatitits or possibly alopecia.
Avatar_f_tn It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> investigations <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
