Avatar n tn I too have had a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> scalp for about 3 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths. It's been off and <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>. I usually notice it when I brush my hair. The background-color: #dae8f4'>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 dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't do pbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ony tails since I have short hair. I use Suave shampoo and Suave cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onditibackground-color: #dae8f4'>oner. I also use Suave hairspray. I dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't feel any background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps; just the background-color: #dae8f4'>tenderness. It really bothers me. Can you help me?

Kind of a cross between a pimple and a mole(?). They do not itch, nor flake, but if I rub my head, and press background-color: #dae8f4'>on them them, they are pretty background-color: #dae8f4'>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.

Avatar n tn Hi, I have a small patch of pink skin <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my scalp that is <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> and has previously been slightly itchy. There is no flaking, no rash (background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps or spots), and no hair loss. It has been going background-color: #dae8f4'>on for mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths, but has background-color: #dae8f4'>only become bothersome in the last few weeks. I have tried dandruff shampoo and have taken a dose of oral diflucan (for an unrelated cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onditibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on) since I first noticed the problem, and neither have helped.

Avatar n tn I have a recurring background-color: #dae8f4'>bump <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my scalp, which is very <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> to the touch. Accompanying this background-color: #dae8f4'>bump (which is impacting an area of approximatly 3-inches in height in length) is a VERY background-color: #dae8f4'>tender and swollen lymph note background-color: #dae8f4'>on my neck. I get these background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
Avatar n tn A few days ago lumps at the back of my head, between my ears, developed. They are <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> and hurt a little when I put pressure <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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 infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on). I just want to be sure as I have never had symptoms like these.

It is making her hair fall out where the background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>one dose last night and now it has gotten worse where before it seemed to have just been under cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ontrol.

I have a headache as well and my scalp is extremely <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> to the touch.

Avatar n tn Since then she has twice gotten 2 to 3 large pustules <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her scalp.

Avatar f tn My daughter(8yrs.) sometimes gets soars <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her scalp that cause some itching. I am not sure if the itching starts first or the irritatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on and then the itch. When she shows it to me it is already red and looks like it is a little infected (yellowish). It background-color: #dae8f4'>only occurs background-color: #dae8f4'>on the top of her scalp and sometimes there is background-color: #dae8f4'>one and sometimes there are two. They are not background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps they are flat. They almost look like the skin has been rubbed away, which it is possible that she did scratch it away.
Avatar m tn I have some scalp moles since a few years and also some "background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps" that itch background-color: #dae8f4'>one side of the head. background-color: #dae8f4'>one mole is big like a dime.

Avatar f tn For 2-3 weeks, very painful small <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s have been appearing <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>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.
Avatar f tn I have suffered for almost 5 yers with pimples <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> scalp, The scalp gets very sore in a circular pattern , background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps come up or pimples with blood, pus and serum. My dermatoligist said it was a folliculitis and put me background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>on Bactrim DS 800-160 tab for a year.
Avatar f tn For about a mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onth now, the skin background-color: #dae8f4'>on my left leg above the knee into the quad area has been very <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span> as if something rubbed against it and irritated the skin. Now the skin <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my stomach is beginning to feel the same way. I am in good health, no rash, no fever, headache, etc. Just background-color: #dae8f4'>tender skin. i have used Eucalyptus oil background-color: #dae8f4'>on it and even resorted to trying Clobetsol...to no avail. Clothing is irritating to me background-color: #dae8f4'>on these areas, and going without just wbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't work. My leg feels better when I shave.
Avatar f tn I too have been experiencing background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps background-color: #dae8f4'>on the "crown" area of my scalp-it first began however with just an extremely sore little area background-color: #dae8f4'>on my scalp and then the area grew to about the size of a baseball and the background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps came...

Avatar f tn Over time it's gotten worse, itchy and is also <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left side of my scalp/head. <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my thigh it is <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>tender</span>, pink to red colored, Very itchy, and gets puffy when scratched. It has multiple pea sized nodules and most are clustered together. The background-color: #dae8f4'>ones background-color: #dae8f4'>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 background-color: #dae8f4'>one busted and had like a hole in the middle.

Then, the next day they had spread and now go all the way albackground-color: #dae8f4'>ong the ridge of my upper lip.
