A week or so ago, I developed a non-itchy rash on my face, and shortly thereafter something similar appeared on the back and sides of my neck.

I noticed since about 4 weeks ago I started to getting these small itchy bumps on the back top side of my head. Recently noticed some starting on the side of my head around the hair line and some at the hair line at my neck.

Washing my hair seems to help relieve some of the itching temporarily but after two or three more days it gets worse with the itching and dry skin falling out.
I recently develop very serious generalized itching mostly on my back arms, legs and back, which cool down when I take Benadryl, also when I scratched hard the area becomes instantly raised in weird snake-like fashion and turns a little red. I also started seeing this strain of Buttons under my chin, ant. and post. neck and lower back. At first I thought it was just acne, but they never turn yellow, just flesh colored or a little red.
I'm a 51 year old female and for the past 6 years I have been experiencing very small itchy pumps on my upper torso (arms, chest,back shoulers) and in the lower back of my head. They come and they go but always seem to come back in the same places. These little bumps itch intensely and I find myself scratching them until they open up, bleed a little and then form a scab. They began coincidentally when my menopause began. In the beginning it was worse right before my period and when I ovulated.
On the rear of my neck I am getting extremely itchy pimple like bumps. At times they seem to be ok and almost seem to disapear, then come back with a vengance.....
For the last 4 months I've been getting itchy bumps all over my upper torso; My back, neck, arms, shoulders, stomach, and right near my pubic area.There are rare occasions that I don't get the rash, but when I do it's right after P.e or after I've taken a shower/bath. I have changed my laundry detergent and am now using Arm and Hammer (for sensitive skin). I've stopped using my regular body soap and I use Dove liquid soap.
My Dad would never go to a barber shop because he likes my Mom to cut it, but we took him to a local Barber for his birthday about three years ago, and ever since then he's had these bumps on his neck. He's tryed pretty much everything that people he knows recommend. They've got so much worse, and are always inflammed, red, and rather large. We thought it could be some type of acne, but these things are not popable. We've tryed unfortunately and they just get larger and really itchy.

1.5 years ago I started having itchy and painful bumps on my scalp. Mostly on the back side of my scalp. I received antibiotic treatment and they went away. 6 months later they came back. I received antibiotic treatment again. They went away. This past summer they returned. I waited for them to go away. They did not. The severity varied until December of 2008. I went to the doctor and he gave me antibacterial shampoo treatment. This has not been helping.

Hello there. I have had these red bumps on the back of my neck and spread down to my upper back since January 2012. They are very itchy and there is no liquid oozing out or if squeezed any debris coming out like with acne. I saw my dermatologist in Febuary to discuss with her and she said it was acne even though I was put on accutane, during that time which cleared up my face nicely.

I also have all the same symtoms,. itchy head, back of neck bumps on the front of my neck, but no lice! My mother thinks I am paranoid, Ive had her check my hair so often, even with a magnifying glass!-but theres nothing there. the doctor prescribed me aqueous cream and coal tar shampoo, and it worked for a short time but not in the long run. I only use natural shampoo- at the moment something from the dead sea 100% organic, which is really expensive, but isnt helping....
