Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on scalp tender

bumps

I too have had a tender scalp for about 3 months. It's been off and on. I usually notice it when I brush my hair. The tenderness is toward the right side of the crown and to theright of the top of my head. I take Ibuprophen to help, but it seems like it comes back. I'm 53 years old and don't do pony tails since I have short hair. I use Suave shampoo and Suave conditioner. I also use Suave hairspray. I don't feel any bumps; just the tenderness. It really bothers me. Can you help me?
In the past month and a half, I've noticed small red bumps on my scalp. Kind of a cross between a pimple and a mole(?). They do not itch, nor flake, but if I rub my head, and press on them them, they are pretty tender and sore. They are close to the top and crown of my head. I am 42 year old, and have not ever experienced scalp problems before. I did begin to take propecia 1 year ago, but have had no adverse reactions to it, so I didn't think it was related.
Hi, I have a small patch of pink skin on my scalp that is tender and has previously been slightly itchy. There is no flaking, no rash (bumps or spots), and no hair loss. It has been going on for months, but has only become bothersome in the last few weeks. I have tried dandruff shampoo and have taken a dose of oral diflucan (for an unrelated condition) since I first noticed the problem, and neither have helped.
In the past two days, red bumps have appeared in an area the size of a dime on the upper right rear of my scalp. They appear to be spreading and are slightly tender, sore to the touch. On the second day I am experiencing occasional stabs of pain from the area, similar to headache pains and short in duration. Rash, insect bite, serious?
i have some small but hard scalp bumps......they irritate me when i touch them. i wear pony tail everyday and i think that part or my scalp is tender.....so is it my tight pony tail or something else?
I have sore hard bumps on scalp. I have been to two dermatoligst, with no success for two years. They hurt and itch. They gave me shampoo, pills, and injections. They seem like they don't know what it is.

I have a recurring bump on my scalp, which is very tender to the touch. Accompanying this bump (which is impacting an area of approximatly 3-inches in height in length) is a VERY tender and swollen lymph note on my neck. I get these bumps in various parts of my scalp multiple times a year. After the initial swelling, a open sore appears that itches and drains liquid, taking weeks to heal.
A few days ago lumps at the back of my head, between my ears, developed. They are tender and hurt a little when I put pressure on them. My sore throat has not worsened: nor has it gotten better. I also have a very slight cough. At the same time I developed an itchy scalp with some dandruff (coincidence maybe). I suspect my nymph nodes are swollen due to a cold (viral infection). I just want to be sure as I have never had symptoms like these.
My 3 year old daughter has red bumps on her scalp that have pus like dots on them that then scab over. It is making her hair fall out where the bumps are. Sometimes they are flat and still scab over. The bald spots are very smooth and I am afraid the hair will not return. I'm taking her to a dermatologist who prescribed Mupirocin. I missed one dose last night and now it has gotten worse where before it seemed to have just been under control.
I have a spot on my head where my hair come out and now I have hard bumps scattered on my scalp and my scalp itches. Any idea what this might be?
Ringworm is a fungal skin infection that occurs on the face, body or scalp. The symptoms of Ringworm or Tinea Capitis include a dry itchy scalp, scaling, crusting, inflamed nodules, hair loss and tender enlarged lymph nodes on the neck. Please consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
It feels just like it does when your pony tail is to tight only more intense. I have a headache as well and my scalp is extremely tender to the touch. There is no redness or bumps. I did just have a baby 4 months ago and just quit breastfeeding not to long ago which means I am now off my prenatal vitamins. I have been loosing my hair which I believe is to be just the excess hair I gained when I was pregnant.
Since then she has twice gotten 2 to 3 large pustules on her scalp. They are very painful and have a moderate amount of green puss. The first outbreak was three sores that appeared on the front of her scalp and lasted about 2 days, the second time was 2 that appeared on the nape of the neck. Could this be staph??? Could it be related even though it has been about 5 months from the orginal infection on her leg???

My daughter(8yrs.) sometimes gets soars on her scalp that cause some itching. I am not sure if the itching starts first or the irritation and then the itch. When she shows it to me it is already red and looks like it is a little infected (yellowish). It only occurs on the top of her scalp and sometimes there is one and sometimes there are two. They are not bumps they are flat. They almost look like the skin has been rubbed away, which it is possible that she did scratch it away.
I have some scalp moles since a few years and also some "bumps" that itch one side of the head. One mole is big like a dime. I live now in a very sunny area, and even if I always wear a sun hat I am concerned it might be cancer. Should I consult a dermatologist??
Thank you for your comment my problem is getting much worse now the scratching is real bad and there are little hard bumps on my head i cannot stop scratching and the film on scalp just keeps forming and hair will also get wet and my hair is falling out bad.
For 2-3 weeks, very painful small bumps have been appearing on my scalp. They started slowly, gradually increasing to where they now cover the crown, sides and back of my scalp. They stop at the hairline. This has happened periodically before, however never nearly as bad. Entire scalp is extremely tender to the touch. My hair loss s diffuse and has been shedding steadly at the root for about three years, although, new growth appears.
I have suffered for almost 5 yers with pimples on scalp, The scalp gets very sore in a circular pattern , bumps come up or pimples with blood, pus and serum. My dermatoligist said it was a folliculitis and put me on minicin which helped 100% but then I became allergic to it. She tried Doxycyclene and it did nothing. Multiple antibiotics were tried. Some cleared it up for about 3-4 weeks and then it comes back. Some did not help at all. I have been on Bactrim DS 800-160 tab for a year.
I too have been experiencing bumps on the "crown" area of my scalp-it first began however with just an extremely sore little area on my scalp and then the area grew to about the size of a baseball and the bumps came...

Over time it's gotten worse, itchy and is also on the left side of my scalp/head. On my thigh it is tender, pink to red colored, Very itchy, and gets puffy when scratched. It has multiple pea sized nodules and most are clustered together. The ones on my head are more spread out, also itchy but seem to be more flesh colored. The thigh rash has no head or anything but my hubby looked at my scalp and said it looked like one busted and had like a hole in the middle.
the 2nd dermatologist i saw said I have ingrown hairs on my scalp from my hair being curly but the hair on the back of my neck is very fine and straight . plus how can i have ingrown hairs all of a sudden on top of my head when I dont shave my head or cut it low and the bumps started after scratching that area badly.
I suddenly have developed tiny bumps on my upper lip. A few months ago this happened in just one little patch but it went away, and I can't remember if I did anything. But just a few days ago they appeared again on both sides of my upper lip. Then, the next day they had spread and now go all the way along the ridge of my upper lip. They aren't particularly noticeable except they change the shape of my lip, making it look smaller than it was in the places where they are on the very edge.
Hello, I have had these bumps under my scalp for years, cannot even remember how long I have had them. They move back and forth when I put my fingers on them, they get a tiny bit bigger every year and seem to be migrating to the top of my head.
