Common Questions and Answers about Itchy scalp red spots

Hello, I noticed these red spots on my scalp today, they are pretty bright red with darker edges. I looked up and looked at pictures of ringworm and squamous and basal skin cancer and mine seem to be redder than those. Could you have a look and give me your opinion please? I'm very grateful. Thank you. I also have more photos if you'd like to see them.
Now it is extremly itchy, red and scabby, still dry skin/flakey, and now I have numerous bald spots all over my scalp. I started using Selsun Blue, so far, no affect yet. Is that the right shampoo for what I have? What do I have? Should I not scratch the spots on my head? Do you think I got the bald spots from itching? Will my hair grow back? I am out of a job and currently have no insurance, do you have any sort of suggestions for my situation? I wash my hair every other day.
Hello. I am a man of 32 years. I am overweight. About a month ago, I left some red spots on his back near the waist, which were resected. Also in the arms, which are dry and virtually disappeared. Others are still in the outskirts of the axillae and nipples, still red and sometimes I get itchy. They are more scaly and red when I shower with hot water. As I said before, these spots are red, sometimes cause itching, are scaly and look like "wrinkled".
Occasionally, on sides of my hair scalp, there are red spots and dry and flaky on some, also are itchy. Hardly any dry spots are more than 5mm across, so we are talking a number of red/dry small spots rather than big area. This happens only once awhile......and i don't know what is the reason!

It is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks are untreated for extended intervals, permanent hair loss may result, because of damage to hair follicles. http://en.wikipedia.
Honestly i do not know when it started but i am always using my finger to rub on my scalp looking for something to scratch off , i have a serious problem with dandruff it comes and goes and sometimes grow over night. When i have it bad i notice i have red spots or bumps on my scalp and i need help because i am very scared this might be some sort of disease ... can someone tell me what are these small red spots that appear ?

My scalp will be red with blood, but it is a clear liquid that makes my hair stick together at night. It started about 3 years ago and then went away and came back last year and never cleared up. When I do itch my head, I have these big clumps of scabs that come off with it. I have tried T-gel shampoo and nothing is helping. Can you suggest anything? I have also put neosporin on them.
I have a problem with my scalp which I have been to my doctor about twice but without success. I regularly get spots (like face spots) on my scalp which can be puss filled or just red aswell as some itching and alot of flaking. I have no idea what is causing it however the symptoms appear to be at their worst after my hair has just been washed and dried. The spots and flaking then become a real problem.

Yes! I noticed that I'm starting to break out in the barely noticeable rashes, especially on my tummy and thighs.
For the past few weeks I have been having a very itchy scalp, and it tends to spread to the back of my ears, neck, arms, and hands. Becuase of my itiching, there is now red spots in those areas except my head and ears. They are beginging to fade but I was wondering is it a rash or allergic reaction? I dont have lice but once in a while I have dandriff problems. But if it is dandriff, wouldnt it just affect my head and shoulders?
I have a similar problem, small itchy red spots in my hairline and if I itch them they bleed, then scab, then itch again... I just found one on my forehead, but until now they have only been on my scalp. I have had my hairdresser check for knits, she didn't find any and continued to do my hair, so if she thought it was anything sinister I think she would have thrown me out of the salon.
In addition, they share similar symptoms, such as itchy, red, scaly skin and burning /soreness of the scalp. Treatment is the same for both, which is shampoos containing coal tar, ciclopiroxolamine ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, or zinc pyrithione. Let us know if you need any other information. Regards.
Off late I see there are red spots errupting all over my scalp and are very painful. This is coupled with severe hair loss. Again unsure if it is related. My entire scalp burns with pain and also the facial muscles. My vission too feel blurry most of the time. Can you advise and guide by telling me what could be wrong and how to proceed for a recovery treatment.
I have always just assumed it was dry skin, or my scalp was dry. There are like 6 different spots on my neck. I am wondering if it is Psoriasis? If anyone has any information, its greatly appriciated.
Recently though my scalp has been getting these single red spots also the when i burst scab and heal but the back of my head has a prolonged red rash now maybe a couple of tiny spots with it but thats it.
round, red, irritated, sometimes itchy spots on my scalp. These spots seem to flare up and then go away leaving dead skin on the area in which it was located. These spots are only located on my head and face in areas where hair grows. I have had this for a year and have not been to a doctor. Can this be problem be resolved with otc medicine?
I failed to mention in the above post that I have been suffering these symptoms (anus discomfort etc) for nearly 5 months and just now the red itchy testicles is a new one, very recent last 4 days. I felt it all started after a sexual encounter (hetero) but so far docs thing I am std free, according to examination and tests. Thanks again for your help.
