771702 tn?1235157810 I also have a similar problem, on the back of my scalp just above my hair line, I have dry and sometimes itchy sores which scab and flake.
Avatar n tn itchy scalp at the base right before the top of my neck starts it itches uncontrollably and when i scratch it i feel these scab like feeling things and they come out they could be my scalp but it also oozes after they come off and they are white and bumpy? what is this!?
Avatar f tn I have a skin tag at the base behind my head and kept fiddling with it until oneday, started picking at it, hoping it would come off. It just produced a scab and I kept picking on the scab ever since and even save the scabs in an envelope which I hide in one of my jacket pockets in my closet. To me, this is like removing "the cancer" from my body. The bigger the scab i can remove, the better i feel. Sometimes, I go over my saved scabs and examine them, esp the large ones.
Avatar n tn I have also tried the fake nails and yes that did stop me from picking my head but eventually when I stopped getting my nails done and they came back. I find that my scalp is so dry and itching I scratch, find a scab, pick it and then it bleeds and that's the beginning of the cycle. I too have bald patches in my head from picking the same scabs over and over but I can't help it. Can anyone help me its driving me crazy and now the scabs are getting sore and giving me headaches.
Avatar f tn Recently i have started obbsessively picking at my scalp until it bleeds. I then proceed to pick again once a scab has formed. Its very painful for me, especially when brushing and washing my hair and the scabs are starting to show on my scalp too. Does anybody have this or no how i can stop please?
Avatar f tn They start from a wound as small as a IV stick, or a razor nick. If I really scrape myself, the sore gets humungus. It forms a scab that will not come off for a few weeks. When it does, there's a deep crator in my leg, arm or scalp. Those are the only areas I develope them. I've seen my Primary Care doctor. She doesn't know why they start. When I was hospitalized, none of the doctors there knew either. I have an appointment with a dermatologist in a couple weeks.
Avatar m tn I visited the doctor a few weeks ago about it and he said it was a school sore which I was skeptical about. I then (painfully) removed the scab and it once more become inflamed, settled down. Most interestingly, it doesn't feel like it is attached to the scalp, but rather is detached underneath the surface. Ideas?
Avatar m tn After nonlubricated masturbation the spot became sore. A few hours later, a scab was formed. No blister, and no raised skin. What do you think?
Avatar n tn I have small bumps on my scalp that sometimes itch and when I scratch them not thinking they are there they really hurt. Then they scab up then come back and scab up again. They are on the top left of my scalp and around the nap of my neck. What are they?
Avatar n tn We are very careful and avoid anal sex all toghther. My question is the other night I was rubbing his scalp through his hair with my nails, not really hard just a scalp massage. If my finger nail scraped a very small scab (not actively bleeding) on his head and I then scratched a pimple on my back a few seconds later, could this transmit the virus? I had an itch on my back and after I scratched it I had a little scab/pimple blood under my nail and a dot of blood on my under shirt.
Avatar f tn area of my scalp-it first began however with just an extremely sore little area on my scalp and then the area grew to about the size of a baseball and the bumps came...
Avatar m tn At first, I assumed he was preening my hairs, but realized last week that he had worried a small sore into my scalp. I doctored it with bacitracin ointment and kept chasing him off when he tried to get up there again. Yesterday evening, I realized I had forgotten to chase him off again, and lo and behold, he had once again broken the healed scalp area. Has anyone else had this experience, and if so, how were you able to curb it?
Avatar f tn I have been living with this hell for some years now. I was on here a few years back as Bigviggs, now I am back hoping someone, doctors I pray will listen. I was living in this house where this female showed up needing a place to stay. We let her in, within a few days everyone who lived there or came by to visit was in the ER. Scabies was what they, the doctors said it was and sent us all away. Treatments were done but to no avail, it still had it's claws in all of us.
Avatar n tn These bumps start up like tiny itchy pimples and are very painful when I touch them. Then they ooze a little pus with a watery liquid.. Then they scab over. When the scab comes off (usually with my help), a hole remains. They are in my hair from forehead hair line back. Scalp feels spongy. Two or three scabs were yellowish green. A couple of months ago I had a few just like that on my arm.
Avatar f tn I have scratched and picked my scalp for about fifteen years. It started with a spot on my scalp that may have been normal dandruff, or it may have been fungal. Who knows, but it's been a long road since. It has always flaked and when I would scratch, tons of dandruff came off. Over the years, the size of the spot has gotten bigger and bigger and obsessive scratching has taken over my life. To me, I've always scratched until dandruff stopped falling.
Avatar f tn About a 5 x 2 cm section of my scalp was ripped back. I got 28 staples and started healing. I got the staples removed two weeks ago and everything is somewhat fine with the healing process. The section of skin on my scalp is still very swollen hindering the ability of it to be smooth and heal with my scalp. It's been a month since the injury and a 1 cm section of the laceration has not completely closed and still bleeds. There is commonly a scab and I try to clean it best I can.
Avatar f tn It started after using a cheap brand of shampoo which caused irritation to my scalp. I then scratched my scalp raw which caused a lot of scabs to form. And ever since I just haven't stopped picking them. I pretty much pick them every day. But I don't think it's down to just stress, I do it when bored or restless as well. Sometimes I barely even notice I do it. My family know but it's too embarrassing to discuss this with friends or partners.
Avatar f tn Can you get herpes on your scalp? I have some sort of HSV as cultured from my doctor about 6 years ago. I never took a blood test. I'm on Valtrex suppressive. I've noticed that over the years I'll sometimes get little pimples on scalp that sometimes scab over with a yellow scab. I just noticed a few scabs yesterday as I was running my fingers through my head. I haven't noticed my head being itchy or tingly. They seem to be at the top back of my head.
Avatar n tn I have developed a sore on the head of my penis and am very worried about. I noticed it nearly 2 weeks ago the morning after fooling around with someone. No sex acts other than masturbation occurred that night. The next day i noticed a small blackish scab-like thing on my penis. I thought perhaps it was friction or maybe even a cut from her ring or something. It did not (and doesn't) hurt. A few days later I picked at it and it came off to reveal a small pink recess.
Avatar f tn I have a red bump on my scalp, that I initially thought was an ingrown hair, so I picked it and it would bleed and scab over, so I picked it again, and it's been a few months and it's still there, it doesn't hurt it's just like a pimple or bump that doesn't go away
Avatar f tn A friend of mine has a 7 cm by 4cm black scab on the right side of her head near the center...it doesn't itch,burn or bleed, her doctor says that it could be sun damage but does not want to send her for tests...she never goes outside...please help me find her problem...
18405950 tn?1464625703 I was getting my hair washed and blowdryed two years ago and the heat burned a part of my scalp, i didnt think nothing of it because i didnt really feel it.
