Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on scalp that come and go

bumps

I have that problem, the bumps seem to come and go, they tried up by them self. but they get very sore and painful tender to touch , and make my head hurt when they get worse. The problem never go away. oil seem to make them worse. what to do?
Started from three days ago, I can feel that I have several redness bumps with itchy sensation spread around the scalp and majority are at occipital and temporal bone area, and two on the right and left frontal hairline. They stated from inion and back of both ears then go up. These bumps are really itchy and moderately swollen. I never had this kind symptom before. I have dandruff since I was litte until now, sometime it is seasonal. I eat unhealthy sometimes, I live outside so.
For the past couple years i have had an itchy scalp and very oily and i get acne all over sometimes big red bumps like pimples under the skin. I also have bold spots that come and go all over my scalp. I dont know what it could be and i'd like to know if you can help me out what can i do to stop it?
They range from little pimples to large ones and some are like blind pimples. They are very painful and they come and go. I found that it helps to use an oil free shampoo/conditioner or shampoo for oily hair, even tho I don't always have oily hair. I am getting really frustrated because no Dr. has been able to give me a good diagnoses or treatment. One Dr. said scalp acne which seems possible and he gave me an antibiotic for acne which actually worked great only my scalp got reallys dry.
There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
On my scalp in one localized spot there was itching and red bumps some small and one a little bit bigger and was pink in color. Itches bad sometimes and sore when touched with anything! About the second day I was itching it and pressing on it, it felt a little wet and oily, so then I guess I spread what ever it was and the red bumps appeared and was pink. So I put acne pimple cream on the area hoping that is was a pimple and that I could pop the "caca" out of it but(sadly)no.
The last week I've gotten three acne bumps on my back. Throughout the day, I feel a tingling on my scalp. My hair seems to be growing at a slower pace. My concern is that this could have been caused by a encounter with a commercial sex worker about 5 months ago. I have taken the majority of STD tests since than and all have come back negative. The only test I haven't taken is herpes. I find it too coincidental that this has happened to me after my sexual encounter.
They are tiny papule looking things that come scattered randomly around my abdomen and sides, never on breast areas, legs, or arms, and not really on back that I have felt. I have gotten a few on my neck however. When I first get them I notice them because they itch, then I scratch, they make tiny open sore a few milimeters big that remain open for a week, then scab, but take a few weeks to go away. Then by the time the last one is gone I will get a new crop.
My younger sister has ESLD and she has more hair then a troll doll, some of this is prob just plain ole genetics.... that Biotin really works for me, course I'm not on treatment yet...I'll go and try and look for these really good shampoos that I've heard mentioned that are supposed to be the best for hair loss, specially for chemo related hair loss, don't have time now but I will find then for you, maybe someone else knows right off hand hope youre well...how did you know I had long hair?
Well i noticed soon after my head flaking and the spots on my face and scalp. She put it down to the psoriasis and prescribed me all sort of shampoos which didn't work. After so long then said it was acne which i have never had in the past. Prescribed me some antibiotics for the acne which did clear it up. until a few days after the course was finished. which then it came up over my body as well as my face and scalp.
Sometimes I scratch before I catch myself and this seems to start them draining and then where I have scratched they start to dry and heal and the pain is relieved on that spot. I do n ot pull hairs out as I have read some people do. I try very hard not to disturb them. The dermatologist did put me on the nose cream Bactroban for a possible staph but it did not have any effect. I have read on other sites that I do not seem to be alone with this condition.
I'm sure that the bites are causing you much anguish but ticks don't bite like that. They bite once and hang on until they drop off or are pulled off. Good luck.
Hi Are there visible bumps or rash on the scalp? For how long have you been experiencing this? I suggest that you ask for a referral with a rheumatologist. Differentials for scalp problems may include seborrheic dermatitis , tinea capitis and discoid lupus. These are just differentials and these may need to be excluded especially when this has been present for quite sometime.
did you get your hair cut is heard way tooo often..but I can now hear!!!That was the worst and scariest that it mite not come back,hearing that is... still have the spock eyebrows and llama eyelashes and just had a bout with a rash and eye infection...but tests have been good, have another one this week,my doc has me doing one every month I was a 2a/b can't remember rite now.Hope your having agood day today,no a good week...take care ...
From my experience, they are probably just cysts. I've had a few on my scalp, and I went to a dermatologist, and he removed one for me in his office. They come from oil buildup in a hair folicle or under the skin, I tend to get them in all sorts of places, and one of my parents gets them, too. Sometimes they'll go away on their own, but not always. If they are bothersome, go to a dermatologist and he'll take care of them for you.
This sounds like dyshidrotic eczema, a common and usually unimportant condition of unknown cause which produces bumps along the fingers that come and go. If it is bothersome, topical steroid creams usually help, so you should see a dermatologist for diagnosis and proper therapy. This sounds nothing at all like herpes. Curing this is not possible--it always comes back when it wants to-- but there's no reason it should keep interfering with your work and daily life. Take care. Dr.
I'm afraid that I can't think of any dermatologic conditions of relevance. Some people get cysts on the scalp, but they wouldn't come on so suddenly, and cysts don't cause any symptoms remotely like yours. I know these sensations are disturbing, but I can't shed any light on them, I'm sorry to say. Best. Dr.
I also have some little red bumps that hurt and bleed when i poke them on my skull. They are more near the hair line though. What about those?
i used to have a rash in the crevice on both sides of my nostrils and in my groin area when i was younger but i havent had a problem with that for a long time, but i do still have a problem with moderately itchy bumps that form on my scalp, usually in the very back of the scalp and sometimes they have a pus and sometimes they dont. those come and go. sorry for the nauseating description but any suggestions with that would also be helpful. thanks!!!
The steroid foam is helping but as soon as I stop using it for about 3 days, the condition starts to come back. I even get pretty itchy bumps on my forehead that don't look like acne. They are red/raised bumps that are VERY sore and VERY VERY itchy. The condition is definitely improved lately with the foam steroid but as soon as I stop using it, I start to get the bumps (very few though) and my scalp starts to become sore, itchy and red again.
I started using a new shampoo and conditioner and a few days later started with the itchy scalp and the bumps on the neck and around the ears. I've stopped using the new Suave shampoo and conditioner with Almond and Shea butter. Anyone else used this shampoo and had an allergic reaction??
I have bites on my scalp big ones that are hard limps that hurt and itch all in a group. I can see black bugs come out in the shower some times. When I go to the doctor they see nothing and thing I am crazy. I think this is because I just moved here so no one knows me and no one knows that my hair is not this black or course! He says that it is. He also says that I just have a lumpy scalp. No because I went through chemo and I have a smooth scalp. It is my body so I think I know.
I think I've figured it out. I can't say for sure if it's an oral Staph, HSV-1 or HPV or mono. But this is what I've come to figure.
I had a shooting pain in the back left portion of my head. It was on and off for several years. I also noticed that I would get bumps on my scalp that would bleed if I picked them off. I thought these were unrelated issues, but I tried a new shampoo. I went and got a bottle of Denorex shampoo (with Salicylic Acid as the active ingredient). I used that everyday for about 3 months and then scaled back to 3-4 times a week.
I have also noticed that in the red area I have small patches of red bumps and blisters that are not painful until pressed and even then they are possibly no more painful than unconfortable. My scalp does mildly itch now and again but is not constant and I also noticed that my scalp in this area is fairly spotty which seem to originate around my hair follicles although there are one or two that don't.
Then I found myself touching the balding spot and became obsessed with pulling out the new growths with tweezers. It's gone on and on. The spot of course has become bigger and bigger that I have to comb over. I, too, am embarassed to get my hair cut because of it. I've tried throwing out my tweezers, just to find I'd search for a pair at a girlfriends house or at my mothers, and then start it all over again, or even stop at the pharmacy to buy another pair!
but today as i was going through some website i read and article that said to mix 1/2 cup of vinegar with 1/3 water and rub it on the scalp and leave it for 5 minutes then shampoo and rinse.. so i gave it a try.i had no choice..and for my surprise it WORKED!!!! i dont know if it works with everyone..but why not try it and figure out.. Goodluck!!
Why do I have dandruff on my scalp and face and would not go away. My chin is the worst all the skin peel or you call dandruff and looks ugly. why do human have this problems. tomorrow i go back to my skin doctor.
i am 19 years old, and when i do masturbate, acne will form on my face and on my scalp. when i don't masturbate for awile, my face will clear up totally. when i went to the doctor, he prescribed me erythromycin 2% topical solution for what he said was a bacteria on my scalp. this cleared it for a little while, but when i masturbated again it would come back. This has been a problem for awile and i would like to find out what this really is, especially the acne type things on my scalp.
Hi, In that case i will suggest you to consult a dermatologist as the bumps could be due to scalp infection or dermatitis. If it is an infection he will need a course of antibiotics to clear up the infection. Since the MRI is clear the possibility of the bumps being due to an internal serious cause is negligible.Please keep me informed.
