Common Questions and Answers about Sore scalp on one side


1009876 tn?1326490077 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 m tn Have these same symptoms. Painful scalp area on right side of my head, swollen glands on the right side and a dull headache. It's Spring so I've attributed it to allergies or a mild virus. It's day three so if I don't see improvement item I'm off to the doctor. Extra vitamins are a good idea.
1536712 tn?1294043301 Right now I have a very tender/sore/painful spot in my scalp. It is on the back of my head, the right side of the middle, up against the top of my head. When I press the spot it hurts. When I drag my hand through my hair too. Sometimes it would be more in the front of my scalp, sometimes the other side etc. It's also sometimes more 'widespread', so much of my scakp will feel tender/sore, but I think there is always one spot which is the 'center'...
Avatar m tn i had a auto accident about 15 days ago. it was single accident that hit the tree in the median. I had laceration on forehead and a couple of fractures on my face. ED said they did CT SCAN and X-rays on several parts of my body and nothing else was fractured. 2-3 days after I was discharge from hospital, I was getting this heavy soreness on my head. Some reason, my right side of body is injured more than left side and even my head is sore only right side.
Avatar f tn ve had a tingling, sensitive sensation in my scalp - right side, along with a sore throat on right side, and an occasional earache. Any idea what it could be or if you had the same symptoms and solved the problem. Dr. thought it was a cold, which it apparently wasn't. Dermatologist didn't know what could cause it and suggested a neurologist. I wonder if thyroid would cause the senitive scalp, or a muscle strain would refer to my ear and throat, or even a sinus or throat infection..
1819252 tn?1317092002 she has been keep an eye on my scalp for me. I have had lots more scalp itching and begin tx wk 16 tomorrow. Remember, it grows back.
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 f tn 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. In psoriasis bumpy patches of skin with soreness may extend beyond the hair line and there are mild to severe thick, crusted plaques accompanying basic symptoms. Wash your hair regularly and avoid damp or sweaty skin.
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 I have numbness and pain on one side of face. Dr. has me on gabapentin 600 mg three times a day but it is not helping.
Avatar f tn My vagina is swollen on one side and quite sore! Thedoctor said as no itchiness it must be where my uterus is pushing down on my blood vessels. Has anyone experienced this so early on im in agony!
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 m tn that is not normal. the back of my head stays stiff and sore. i dont dare go to sleep on my right side. i hsvr to use 2 pillows to be comfortable.
Avatar f tn This last 3 days. By Friday I was better. Sunday night I noticed on the left side of my scalp top back a sensation that was irritating to me. It doesnt come and go while I just sit in one spot rather when I twist my neck slightly to the left and back when it is touched it hurts but not severely. Once in awhile when I am walking I will feel the pulling. Almost feels as though I have had my hair up in a pony tail for far to long.
