Sore bumps on scalp causes

Common Questions and Answers about Sore bumps on scalp causes


Avatar f tn Hello hope you are good. Painful sores in the head could possibly be due to several conditions. These sores can be caused by viral, bacterial or fungal infections. Acne and clogged hair shafts can cause scalp sores, too. Cysts on the scalp are another cause of scalp sores. In folliculitis there is inflammation of one or several hair follicles on the skin causing red, bumpy and pimple-like lumps.Tinea capitis causes round, red, scaly bumps on the scalp's surface.
Avatar n tn hi everyone, for about 6 months ive had these pimple like bumps on my scalp every now and then. sometimes theyre just bumps, and others theyre like pimples: when "popped" either clear liquid comes out or even blood. i have no idea what they are, does anyone have a clue?
Avatar m tn I do not know if these bumps are DH or if it is another problem just caused by malnutrition that Celiac disease causes. But is this your only symptom or do you have other signs of malnutrition? The first shampoo I would recommend trying is called Nizoral shampoo. It is pricy but it is helpful for clearing many scalp conditions and it also helps regrow hair. I do many, many things to restore my health. My scalp is much better, but I would say that shampoo was key.
Avatar m tn Do you get bumps and areas on the scalp that itch and turn into lesions and almost scabby or scaly spots on the edges and back of your ear/ears and on your scalp after they ooze from being scratched open? If so, check out sebhorrheic dermatitis and psoriasis. It can be linked to allergic rhinitis-aka hay fever, and allergies or autoimmune responses.
Avatar n tn I developed a sudden bump on my scalp. It's been there for 4-5 days now. It's red, sore and painful when touched. I went to the doctor and he said it was an infection and prescriped antibiotics to be eaten 4 times a day. It's been 4 days and it hasn't changed much. There's no pus or anything. i was a bit concerned. Should I go through MRI tests.etc?
Avatar n tn I have sore hard bumps on scalp. I have been to two dermatoligst, with no success for two years. They hurt and itch. They gave me shampoo, pills, and injections. They seem like they don't know what it is.
Avatar f tn t itch but can become sore if I pick at them. The bumps do not pop. The bumps become dry and scaly/flaky but never go away. They always appear in the exact same spots. If I dont use any type of bump shampoo they can become inflamed more and spread. SeBex, a shampoo for types of scalp bumps has been helpful keeping it in control but the bumps still remain visible. I have picture on my profile that show the texture and appearance of the scalp bumps.
1667305 tn?1303308073 I want to know what on earth these little yellow line of puss bumps on my forehead are..! The line where they are was has been sore for a couple of days and this morning they appeared. Please help me if you can. I am 21 years old.
Avatar n tn You do need some help with the sore and itchy skin on your face and scalp. You may need an antibiotic or a special cream to help. You may have a condition called rosacea. If the doctor confirms that that is what your problem is, a metronizadole cream called Rosex is really good to clear it up. You may notice that when you get these flare ups there may a trigger, like cold wind, too sunny, certain foods or drinks.
Avatar f tn After I got the results and did a bit of internet searching I seen where HSV can be in the mouth. I noticed small red bumps on the roof of my mouth an a small bit of white pus on my tonsil. I went to the dentist who then sent me to my ENT. ENT advised of sinus infection, (sore throat) not HSV. Could I have transmitted HSV2 to her scalp? I'm worried that I do have HSV1 and may have transmitted HSV1 that I might have or the HSV2 that I was diagnosed with. PLEASE HELP.
Avatar f tn Went to a dermatologist for this and all she said was that my scalp and forehead were "irritated." She didn't name the condition or anything. She said it wasn't from shampoo, etc. I have no scaling or dandruff symptoms, just BURNING, red and EXTREMELY INTENSE itchy scalp. I was given some sort of steroid (can't remember the name of it) that is a foam consistency (like moose). She seemed more concerned about my knees, which turned out to be Granuloma Annulare.
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 m tn from 6 days i have notice that many lumps has been felt on my scalp , neck and allergenic rashes sometime on back below the abdomen. can you consult what is problem.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the info! I have tried some of the shampoos with salicylic acid or coal tar - all it did was make my scalp worse- sort of firery sore and super itchy. that's why I think its dry scalp and not dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis - the symptoms just don't fit. my hair and scalp are dry, not greasy - even if i go 3 days between shampoos my hair is not greasy. the flakes are small and white and not oily.
Avatar n tn I have frequently gotten these bumps on my head that are extremely hard. They seem to be made out of dandruff or built up dead skin cells, but I use a specialized shampoo that keeps my scalp moisturized since I've had dandruff issues before. The bumps leak a clear fluid when I scratch them off, and, as expected of an open "wound", sting when in contact with anything external.
Avatar n tn I am a 16 year- old girl, and over the past 6 months, I have been getting small, protruberant bumps on my lower scalp. These bumps are extremely painful to touch, and after a few days, they disappear, only to appear again in a different area on my head a few days later. I am pretty sure they are cysts, but they are extremely painful, and I am just wondering what the proper course of action is to figure out if I am in any sort of danger.
Avatar m tn Hi i would like to ask a question about herpes can the herpes outbreak sometimes hit your face? have strange bumps appearing on face looks like whitehead pimple but ends as sore that leaves a little mark which leads me to another question. can a person who is said to have a underlaying case of chicken pox{ if there is such a thing} infect a person with the virus.i hope this does'nt sound stupid but the marks look like little chicken-pox marks.
Avatar f tn I started getting hard bumps on my scalp several years ago. The feel like really hard scabs and are painful to the touch. They are about the circumfrence of the tip of my index finger. I have picked the scab off before and it leaves a shallow hole in my scalp, but doesn't really bleed. There is some sort of clear liquid that does not smell. When the skin grows back I have a small bald spot for a bit until my hair grows back.
Avatar f tn I have had severly sore bumps that occur on my scalp for the past 2 years now. They come and go but start out as just a sensitive area on my scalp that I notice when combing my hair. My husband often tells me that he cannot even see anything until a few days later. They get quite painful to the touch and have recently begun to accompany a burning feeling. When I look at my scalp it looks slightly red, but not terribly.
Avatar m tn NO change in my assessment or advice, either about your risk or about the bumps. If the bumps worry you, see your doctor- there are many possible non-STD causes. An yes, this is too late for this to be ARS. A syphilis rash could occur this late but as I said, is not a concern. Nothing more to say.
Avatar f tn I too have been experiencing bumps on the "crown" 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 f tn For the last few days i have been experiencing if you could imagine where a hairband would lie on your head (directly in the middle) a sore burning/tight feeling of the scalp. Almost feels like my hair is being pulled its very sensitive- but very very sore and burning feeling. Does anyone have any ideas on what this is & what i can do??
Avatar n tn A few days ago lumps at the back of my head, between my ears, developed. They are tender and hurt a little when I put pressure on them. My sore throat has not worsened: nor has it gotten better. I also have a very slight cough. At the same time I developed an itchy scalp with some dandruff (coincidence maybe). I suspect my nymph nodes are swollen due to a cold (viral infection). I just want to be sure as I have never had symptoms like these.
Avatar n tn male I have been getting my hair cuts close to the scalp for several years. Until now, I never had these red bumps on the back of my scalp where i get close haircuts. I go to a professional barber who uses clean equipment. These red bumps are not itchy and dont have any pus. The bumps look like acne with no pus. I wash my hair daily. I havent used any new products. Are these red bumps due to scalp folliculitis? What is it? Is there any treatment? I like to keep my hair short(military).
