Common Questions and Answers about Sore scalp with new growth


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 n tn Then I found myself touching the balding spot and became obsessed with pulling out the new growths with tweezers. It's gone on and on. The spot of course has become bigger and bigger that I have to comb over. I, too, am embarassed to get my hair cut because of it. I've tried throwing out my tweezers, just to find I'd search for a pair at a girlfriends house or at my mothers, and then start it all over again, or even stop at the pharmacy to buy another pair!

It might be my face is red and feel burning and itch. At least I dont scrath so often and seems calm my face skin. Well if you like, you could try A and D ointment on your face.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem - itchy scalp, neck, ears and eyes with a rash for like a month. I started taking celexa a month ago and the problems started. When I went to the dermatologist she told me that is "highly unlikely that I have an allergic reaction to the medication because of the distribution of the rash" and she suggested taking a biopsy from my neck for analysis to rule out inflammatory immune diseases.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.

Avatar n tn I was also told that my boots sensitive mascara did not agree with me. I am not aware of ever having used lanolin. I stopped wearing eye make up and only used vaseline around the eyes. Approx. 2 months later it suddenly vanished, not sure how? I had put up with the problem for 11 months, gradually becoming worse. And now after 2 months of it having gone away, it has returned again. This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left.
Avatar n tn But I can't help but wonder how long I can use it. I have an appointment with a new doctor on the 20th and will post if they had any insight.
Avatar n tn The crown area of my scalp suddenly became very oily. I have washed my hair with every shampoo I thought was strong or harsh. I have even tried liquid dish detergant. Nothing works. I am a healthy woman who baths daily, I say this to offset the idea that maybe I am ill or unclean. Please tell me what this is, how I can get rid of it and how I might be able to prevent it from coming back.

Avatar m tn My symptoms have been varied, itchy skin, permanent sore dry mouth and tongue with spots and ulcers that come and go, tongue has geographic sores with white dry coating, small pimple\rash like sores mainly on scalp, shoulders, chest and upper legs. I also have nausea and muscle joint pain that comes and goes with no link to exercise routines at all. there has also been a major change in my sight over the last year and a half, which I agree can be just old age creeping in.

Avatar n tn the next week i had made out with a guy i met at a bar and the next night with made out with another guy i met at a bar. the next day i was incredibly hung over and my mouth lining was peeling, but not bleeding. i also had very chapped lips and sore throat. i also had bruises in my armpits. i figured i may have been dehydrated and on top of that mouth breathing in my sleep due to congestion. i tend to get post nasal drip, which ends up causing sore throat too.
Avatar f tn They can be attached for a day or less, and they can hide in folds or wrinkles, hard to see places, the scalp, behind the ear. When found, they are easily mistaken for a little scab, a new mole, a skin tag, or other mysterious skin bump that just goes away. And plenty of people don't get a rash or sore knees. You are also welcome on the Lyme page as you continue your search for a diagnosis. I hope you find one soon!
154927 tn?1205246451 I am on week 20/48 right now, geno 1a, 53 yr young female. My nurse gave me a list when I began tx. One of the things on the list was not to put any chemicals on our scalps. I don't know if it was just a coincidence or not, but my hair/scalp started being sore shortly after I colored it & my hair started to fall out around then. My girlfriend had flown up to Maine to spend a weekend with me, and we dyed eachother's hair, watched chickflicks and ate bon-bons all weekend.
Avatar n tn what really happens is the excitement of the new baby distracts the idiot doctor from fixing the jacked up scalp skin right away, when it is easiest to do so since the scalp on brand new babies is like Play-doh...when the scalp hardens, hair grows and parents forget.... years later, Billy shaves his head or loses his hair and "WAAALLAhh", the wrinkles show up and everyone thinks he has some disease. I have it too.

Avatar n tn My hair started falling out about the end of the third month of tx i had 3 head fulls of hair to begin with , and i have lost over half, its getting down to were you could see some of my scalp when i pull my hair back in a ponytail, im on 30/48, and the amount has slowed down a little, and ive gotten over the drama of it all, because it will grow back as soon as tx is done and out of your system, its weird my gray hairs tend to be the ones hanging on , just my luck.......
Avatar n tn I have found that taking a shower helps a lot, and if I am at work and cant take a shower, I just go wet the area of my scalp with some water.....and the sore spot subsides. I would say that for immediate relief try the water on the spot treatment.......... its worked great for me! by the way- I always linked the spots to stress or having hair up for too long...
Avatar f tn Doctors have diagnosed me with fibromyalgia years ago and basically told me to live with it. I finally found a great doc who is listening to me. However I see her far and in between. I have so many questions and I'm hoping to get some advice from you all. Am I headed in the right direction as far as treatment with Cytomel? Should I be doing something else? Oh also I'm very sensitive to medications (chemical sensitivity)...
Avatar f tn I'm a 26-year-old female with the following symptoms: -excess hair on my face (it has been getting worse and worse, it mainly grows under my chin in a line and I have tried permanent hair removal too but it did not work at all, it has become so strong that I will need to shave if it doesn't change) - hair loss on scalp -sudden weight gain that I cannot lose no matter what. My weight doesn't go down by a few lbs either., I am currently 200 lbs, I used to be 130 and I eat healthy.
Avatar n tn Since you have a palpable lump, it is possible that you have a growth such as a lipoma, keratoma, or similar pressing on a scalp nerve. You may also have a nerve growth/tumor causing inflammation or pain. A neuroma involving nerves originating from C2 or C3 may also be your problem. Ask your doctor for a referral to a good neurologist, and then ask this neurologist about neuromas or neuritis, or cervicogenic headache.
Avatar m tn Pressure type-headaches may be associated with primary headaches like tension headache which is often due to stress. The red bumps on the scalp, on the other hand, may be due to infection that needs to be evaluated directly. Have this checked by your doctor for roper evaluation. Imaging studies like CT scan or MRI may also be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
