Hi, The bumps on your scalp may be due to folliculitis, dermatitis, viral infections, acne or blockage of ducts leading to sebacious cysts. To be able to reach a diagnosis, direct clinical examination is important. Have this evaluated further for proper management. With regards to your dandruff, daily washing with an antidandruff shampoo may help decrease oil and cell buildup. There are plenty of dandruff shampoo available in the market today.
About a few days ago, I started having rashes on my neck, waist, armpits. They are raised little bumps that really itch! They are only slightly reddish, not very obvious unless you pay attention. As for my scalp, I stopped scratching it (only rubbed it occasionally), and I realized that it has sort of hardened over? It still itches. Please help! What is it, and what should I do? The itch on my scalp and body is really driving me crazy. HELP!
I've been having issues with these large bumps on my scalp that feel like mosquito bites. I know its not lice and its has happened several times over past year. The only last about a day. They are small at first then get bigger and itch like crazy. usually starts with my ear itching right behind it and my ear then gets red and swollen. then I have a few of the bumps show up in the hair line on each side of my forehead. they itch like crazy. then a few on the back of my head.
I recently developed small itchy bumps on my scalp and around my one ear. They just started one day last week. I tried a different shampoo for the scalp. No relief. I have not used anything different to bring this on. I have had itchy spots before when I used certain hair products but I have not been using any. It is driving me crazy. I had a little bit of dandruff when this started but that has cleared up. I have had my head checked so many times for lice. Nothing.
The bumps become very dry and flaky after I use the antibacterial shampoo but even with the shampoo treatment new bumps always form. They have become extremely itch and flaky. Persistent on scalp behind head. Two larger bumps have formed on both sides of my head behind the ear. Not sure if they are lymph nodes trying to fight the infection or cysts. What should I do? These bumps are stressing me out A LOT!!!
Hi, You mention that you have dandruff, have you taken any medication for that? Do these 'bumps' have pus or blood in them? Do you think these may have happened due to some substance you may have applied on your scalp? Or due to contact with some substances on your headrest /pillow /hat /headgear ? It seems anti-allergics have helped you a bit. This may indicate an allergic reaction.
Hello, The symptoms that you are having can be due to dandruff, fungal infection and staph infection of the bumps due to scratching. Dandruff can cause either an overly dry scalp with itchy white flakes that may be waxy or greasy, or it can manifest as an oily scalp with scales. Sometimes it can be due to fungal infection/ring worms they start out in spots of thick patches of flakes throughout the scalp then they end up uprooting the hair in the hair breaking it off until there is a bald spot.
Hello, There are two possibilities that I can think of.First is of folliculitis.Second is of acne keloidalis nucahe. Folliculitis is the inflammation of one or more hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the skin.Acne keloidalis nuchae occurs when hairs on the head and neck grow into the skin, become inflamed, and cause scar tissue. I would suggest that you get it evaluated from a dermatologist as treatment is different for both. Hope it helps.
on my scalp right above both my ears. I have bumps that itch like mad at times. BUT when I sweat it feels like my skin is on fire. I do have a hot tub that I have been in a few times in the last month. I am on meds but have been for a very long time. so I feel it cant be them. the burning and itching has me nuts. I dont have lice. I looked and had someone look too.
My face and scalp itch. What works for me is rubbing on a vitamine E oil, at least on my face. It knocks it dwon about 90% and lasts all day. I haven't seen a dematologist yet, but plan to in the near future..
I I am a 19 year old male, for nearly a year i have been having hair loss/thinning and a severe itch on my scalp where some days it becomes very intense and prevents me from doing my day to day activities as it requires me to remain indoors sometime as whenever i try i relieve the pain by stroking my hair it cuases my scalp to hurt by moving my hair follicules, and whenever at the site of the itch hair seems to fall there.
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.
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.
I only noticed recently that I started getting tiny bumps on the back of my head that turn into yellow scabs. I notice that if I use Prell shampoo it clears up most of them. I had it bad one time where it looked like I had cradle cap on the back of my head.
The sides and back of my head are normal and do not itch or get pus filled bumps. The bumps are so painful sometimes that I just can't take it. I have had a biopsy done a few years ago when my hair first began falling out. The biopsy ruled out everything except alopecia. I don't believe it is alopecia because the hair grows a little and then fall out again. One dermatologist said it was eczema and prescribed me a foam that with my insurance still cost $90.
For the past four days my scalp (some parts of it , like wear my middle part is an just outside the egde of my scalp on my forehead) My left half of my face is extremely itchy, my eye is veiny -er and my eye lid hurts, theres no rash really no bumps that i've seen so far, it just itches and itches painfully that im in near tears. I bought T gel and it helped to maybe about four minutes after my shower before i felt the tingle of oncoming itches.
