Top of scalp sore to touch

Common Questions and Answers about Top of scalp sore to touch


Avatar n tn Have you noticed if the area of the scalp is sensitive to touch ? Does the pain increase on combing, etc ? You have to see a neurologist for this and consider the possibility of trigeminal neuralgia.
Avatar f tn Just this evening I felt this soreness on my head, I started touching my head and felt that it was localized at the very top crown part of my scalp - whenever I touch my hair or lightly touch that area it is incredibly painful and sore. A friend looked at that area and there is a bright red dot - the size of a grain of rice. The entire area surrounding the dot is incredibly sore - as though someone smacked me in the head with a hammer.
Avatar f tn I have a small (1/3in wide) hard lump on the left side of the crown of my head. I was told it was probably a calcium build up by my doctor but she never examined it. I still have the lump six months later and it feels like it is getting bigger (I can't see it in the mirror where it's located), I am also getting more frequent headaches. It is under the scalp, I can move the skin a little, no hair loss and the lump itself does not move as if it's attached to the skull.

Avatar f tn For awhile now I have had a sore spot in the top of my head. I don't wear pony tails or braids because anything that pulls on my scalp gives me a headache. My scalp doesn't have sores and the area doesn't appear to be red, but my hair has thinned in the sore area. It isn't sore to touch it just constantly feels tender. I do suffer from allergies to dust, pollen, and cat dandruff. I often have sinus pressure around my temples and forehead.
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 I do have bone spurs. Last night it has progressed to sharp shooting pains to my ear and top of my scalp (I cannot even touch my hair). Advil doesn't work nor did Fioricet. Can the bone spurs in my neck be causng this problem .. I did lift some heavy boxes the other day and that night it started to act up. I am in a lot of pain so any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
455242 tn?1206477307 Would sensation of fullness within the head and the inflammation and swelling that come with sinusitis may refer pain to other areas of the head. As you stated cause that kind of sore-ness on top of the head? with a red spot sensitive to the touch? The swealing bump did go down, but its still red and sore. thank-you, enya...
Avatar f tn diagnosed my bald spots to be Alopecia Areata. To date it comes and goes but recently my scalp has been extremely sore to touch and I have been getting headaches every day. I don't know who to see or where to go to get help in properly diagnosing this. The pain is at the top front or my head and middle top left side of my head. I have been also experiencing eye pain but this could be due to the fact that I also need to see an eye dr for new glasses.
Avatar m tn Over the last few years my hair has continued to gradually thin all over, however the MOST noticeable areas are in the front of my scalp and directly on the top of my head. I still have hair there. Saw the hairstylist tonight and she said my hair was noticeably thinner on top however there were no bald patches. Just that you could see that it was thinning more noticeably in the front. Honestly, if it werent for the fact that I look in the mirror every day, I would swear I was already bald.
Avatar f tn I have a weird sore sensation over the top of my head (if you think where a hairband would like- kind of center middle of head & to the sides). When i sniff its sore, which is often at the moment as i have an horrendous cold. but before i had the cold it was sore when i sniffed. Also sometimes the scalp around there feels sensitive to touch & burns too. Would appreciate your help? Could this be sinus or does this suggest something else?
Avatar f tn my chin right up to my top of my head is very sensitive and sore to touch. There are no signs of swelling or redding of the skin. I am just wondering if maybe there is something wrong up there or not. i have never experience this before and it's kinda worrying me..
Avatar m tn the lump is more to the top and back of my left side of my head . i asked my doctor she said not to worry about it . just interested that is all could it be a cyst or something ? no cancer history in my direct family history.
Avatar n tn I suggest you see a Vascular MD
Avatar f tn So I went back and asked her about it again, she told be to massage in warm oil to by scalp to help moistureize it. Not really helpful I guess my question is... could this be connected to the crohon's? If so, how?
Avatar n tn Just today I started having these sharp pains to right side back of head. When touching scalp where pain was coming from I found scalp to be really sore in that place. Feels like i hit my head on something but no bump or indention. Recently I dyed my hair 3 days ago. I've had a sore throat for two days and sneezing with runny nose today. The shooting pain is my most concern. Took an ibuprofen to see if that will help.
Avatar m tn It is extremely sensitive to the slightest touch which aggravates the general pain. The scalp skin is clear and normal. She has had this condition for about a week. If she turns her head or has scalp movement the pain is more noticeable. She has had no headaches during this time and rarely has a headache. This is the first time she has experienced any such pain.
Avatar n tn It is tender when I touch or try to comb it. The tenderness is at the top and middle of my head. I have sharp shooting pain in my head all through the day. Nothing seems to take it away. Can you help me?
Avatar m tn Dear Neurology GURU, I am experiencing slight scalp pain near top/back junction of leftside of scalp which is characterized by sensitivity to the scalp when touched which includes laying my head on my pillow. When I touch & press my fingers on that specific point (which is not larger than a dime size area) or lay that portion of scalp on pillow, I feel slight pain in the scalp. Pain is like I feel something is injured in that area.
Avatar n tn bruise-like pain on the top of my skull. I asked my husband to take a good look on the top of my head and try to see anything strange, any sort of mark, spot, etc. He did not notice anything different. This pain does not bother me, unless I touch that particular point. I started to notice this since 2 months ago. Any ideas about what this could possibly be? Thanks a lot.

Avatar f tn Everytime I touch the middle of my scalp I feel pain. It hurts like I have a sore there. I have been feeling this pain in the middle of my scalp for years now. I would like to know why I have this pain and what's the diagnosis for this pain.
4194013 tn?1411005236 I have a localized spot on the top of my head, that is really sore. It started a couple days ago, and has since got larger and more sore. It typically only hurts when I make certain facial expressions that tightens my scalp, touch it, or move my hair in that area in any way. It's almost like it bruised, and sometimes feels like it irritated even when I'm not bothering it. I don't have any discoloration on my scalp, no bumps, nothing unusual.
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 m tn The muscles in the neck and shoulders run up to the head. When a person injures those muscles, they often feel it in their head, and that's why sometimes they'll get headaches. So, when you popped your head on the railing, you very likely wrenched your neck muscles too. That's why you feel pain in your neck, and is probably why the pain extends up to your head. Also, your head pain, you probably bruised the heck out of it, so it's going to be sore for a while.
Avatar n tn It is a soreness that is sore to the touch or to movement of the scalp (as in upraised eyebrows). The pain is underneath the skin in the connective tissue. About a fourth of the descriptions in this forum seem to be describing this particular pain. Never had it before. KInd of odd. WIll dig deeper into quixotic1's suggested link (above). :
1230181 tn?1269951024 I have never felt like a nail is in my scalp, but my scalp is always sore and I just chalked it up to always having my hair in a pony tail or bun for work, so in the past to weeks have started leaving it down as much as possible and it so far has not changed. Wish I would offer some advice! Best Wishes!
