Common Questions and Answers about Sore scalp right side


1819252 tn?1317095602 Hi everyone. I am 13 weeks into treatment and I have a very sore,dry scalp. My hair is also falling out quite a bit now. I was wondering if any of you have found a product to help the scalp. I have been using Nioxin shampoo and conditioner, but it doesn't seem to help at all.
Avatar f tn For the past month I've been having headaches on the left side of my head. Top, side and forehead area. If I touch my head my scalp is very sore. I feel like I have a bruise on my head. I've been to my dr he thinks it could be from my birth control pill. I've taken the same pill for 3+ years. I've had a cat scan and it was normal. The pain is not constant but pretty close. Sometimes it pulsates, sometimes it's dull. Does anyone have a clue what this might be?? I need some relief.
Avatar n tn I have a sore area, about one cm across at the very top of my scalp. It is not a sore or mole but feels sore, like a bruise, it does not itch or bleed. I first noticed it a few months ago, it went away and now I've recently noticed it again. It's tender if I press it (it doesn't hurt if I don't touch it). I don't see any lesion or discoloration. I actually shaved the hair away from that area to look at it and I don't see anything, the skin looks like the rest of my skin.
1009876 tn?1326493677 The sore spots are only on my scalp, not my face. I have been putting antibiotic cream (clindasol) on the spots. It seems to make the soreness subside, but they're not going away. So far, Head and shoulders doesn't help. I'm going to change my shampoo to see if that helps.

Avatar f tn It started on the right side of the back of my neck and slowly progressed to my scalp where it has stayed. I get shooting pains that start at the top of my scalp and shoot downward to my neck and ears. I have already seeen 5 dermatologists, but they will only look at the scalp. They will not touch it. I have been told that if they cannot see it, it does not exist. I am beside myself as to what to do next. A friend who is an RN said that it could be neurological.
Avatar n tn I have some pain on the crown of my head, it gets bad at times and it is sensitive to touch even when I lie down or anything touches it. I also have pain in the ear on the right side, it also affects my eyes, pressure behind them. I have some pulling feeling in my neck and right shoulder when I turn my head at times....I feel two to three small lumps or they are vessels that are swollen either way...its painful and annoying at the same time.
529981 tn?1212853666 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.
Avatar m tn I have recurring pain in my scalp and I first started feeling it in my ears and throat. When the shooting pains started moving to the right side of my scalp, I though it was something to do with my nerves. I once had a similar issue on the other side of my head and the doctor said he believed it was a scalp pimple pushing down on a cluster of nerve endings.
Avatar f tn vomitting nausea (when not vomitting) sore scalp stabbing pains in head sore neck migranes numbness/tingling sweating in both hands & feet some weakness dizzyness/ lightheaded tachycardia (big time palps) I can't stand it much longer and need something done. OSU said I wasn't on a good pain management program and said I need to be so they prescribed me percocet for 5 -10 days. I just called my primary to ask for a refill but um...I doubt he does. He is being non cooperative.
Avatar f tn For about 2 weeks now when I wake up in the mornings my nose on the right side is stopped up. My ear hurts sometimes but not bad just when I blow my nose it hurts. I am not dizzy but I feel like I am off balance sometimes. It hurts to breath cold air too. I am highly allergic to perfumes and other strong smells. but this tenderness in my head is bothering me. It is really tender to touch and if I rub it I can get a migraine. What do you think this is.
Avatar n tn I usually notice it when I brush my hair. The 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 don't do pony tails since I have short hair. I use Suave shampoo and Suave conditioner. I also use Suave hairspray. I don't feel any bumps; just the tenderness. It really bothers me. Can you help me?
Avatar f tn for past 1 week i have been experiencing pain on the back of my scalp which becomes unbearable whenever i touch it. It all started from top of my scar on the right side of my back of the skull, which was caused due to a strong blow i experienced 10 yrs ago. Luckily my wound was only superficial and doctors did'nt even suggest MRI or CT scan at the time.
5602669 tn?1370736146 There a sore spots that are the size of coins that burn and are very sore and often times even though it seems that no one else can see them, I feel with my fingers what seems to be sore rough spots. From time to time I will also have sharp electric type pain on my head too. I have had this problem since April of 2012. Can anyone relate to this?
Avatar m tn is a burning, tight scalp, tightness in right temple, random pains in head a sign of something life threatening?
Avatar m tn right side swollen gland, occasional pains in right ear, and small area of scalp that is sensative to touch on top right side. So far, it does not seem serious, but I am concerned because it is different from anything experienced before. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have a pencil eraser size scab on my scalp. It is sore to touch and is also raised. It looks yellow and scabby and when I peel it off it is very sore. I have been bleaching my hair all summer which I thought might be the cause. All over the right side of my head I have spots that occasionally burn or itch for a second or two then stop. But there is one specific spot that is a large scab that will not go away and is sore. Please help.
Avatar m tn Accompanying this symptom, was a localized area on my scalp, that was sensitive to the touch. Located on the top right side of my head, the area was about three inches in diameter. No pain, just sensitive when touched. Additionally, there was occasional tenderness felt from the inner ear area of my right ear. Again, mild and infrequent. Symptoms occurred on day one, but day two were hardly noticable. Reappeared on day three, four and five. No other cold or flu like symptoms to speak of.
Avatar n tn The next day the burning pain had spread to the right side of my face, nose and, by yesterday, to my scalp. Today my entire tongue is burning (not just the right side) all the way to the back of my throat. My left thigh stopped burning a couple of days ago. The day after the burning pain started, I started suffering from a low-grade fever, loss of appetite, extreme exhaustion and such dizziness that I can't remain vertical for longer than a few hours w/o needing to lie down for several hours.
Avatar f tn The last time I had this pain was maybe 6 months to almost a year ago on the right side. It hurt near my ear, then about an inch above my ear on my scalp and into a little bit of my jaw. It also hurt behind my ear near my skull. I'm thankful that I haven't had the pain much recently, because the last time that I had the pain on the right-hand side of my head, it happened again like 2 weeks apart. Anyway, I've tried to research, is this TN, is it occipital neuralgia, is it something else?
Avatar n tn The redness and some pimples extend to the middle part behind my head and down to the hair line in back of my head. Some spots seem to be sore and small traces of blood every now and then. I must also tell you that I have a very bad habit of really scratching in those areas. When I shampoo at times those areas seem to sting. For all I know this might've been there for years. For now I've been putting a triple paste antibiotic on it and using Selsum blue. I also have a dandruff problem.
Avatar n tn It is more or less a skin allergy that causes crusting, flaking, and sometimes a gummy buildup. If your scalp issues are your only side-affects, try using a dermatitis shampoo like Dermarest and Scalpacin liquid.
Avatar n tn Lately I have been having severe sharp shooting pains in a specific area of the scalp on the right side. The scalp in this region is also remarkably warmer than anywhere else on the head. I have had several coworkers confirm this. Upon research of this it seems to be possibly anxiety, but nothing I have looked at so far has addressed the temperature change of the specific area of the scalp.
Avatar n tn I have been having some scalp pain on the right side of my head above my ear and down the back of my head. The pain is not major but is pretty constant and my scalp hurts to the touch. It feels like someone has pulled my hair very hard. Does anyone know what would be the cause.
Avatar f tn The pain has excellerated again and is starting on the left side of my head the same as on the right side. The top of my head feels raw. The back of my neck from skull to shoulder is very tight and hurts all of the time. My forehead is sore, eyes hurt, I have ear pain some in both ears, not sure if it is part of the problem, though. My head feels heavy, I get nauseous when I do much of anything that requires bending or lifting which includes most household chores.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a cyst on the front right side of my scalp. I have had this for about 15 years. It has gotten bigger over the years and is starting to bother me. It gets very sore and itchy. I hit it with the comb or brush every time I do my hair. Even my hair dresser has noticed that it has gotten bigger.I am having it removed tomorrow morning. Although I am a bit nerverous I will be glad to have this pain in the head gone.I will let you all know how this turns out. Wish me Luck!
Avatar f tn i also had my throat a bit swollen.... everyrhing on my right side. I dont have ins right now dueto my hubby be layed i saw a friends dr who told me to take antibiotics maybe it was spider bites......been on them for 4 days and all it done is expand from the nap of my neck to the top of my head........ it hurts to touch....burns.....feels like a bruise in some of today i now get like sharp little pains and throbs........
Avatar n tn we HAVE to fix that first, or we'll pick weather theres a scab or not (i've picked my scalp and MADE my own sore so i could pick it). just my two-cents.
174945 tn?1201601354 Do you have a scalp cyst? I did for about ten years until recently. It felt like a marble under my scalp, about two inches above my left ear. Dr. said don't worry about it (scar tissure, benign cyst, etc.) Well, it decided to erupt one morning not long ago, for no apparent reason. All this white creamy stuff oozed out when I touched it. Then I smashed some more out. It was the consistency of toothpaste. Great, I thought. It finally popped. Wrong. This was just stage one.
