What causes small bumps on scalp? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Good afternoon my name is XXXX,
I have problems with skin
I have some tender small bump on my scalp
I have these bumps from my childhood, they use to usually excarbate in summer and fade away (go to thier normal position after it)
but this year they are not fading away, also I have developed lot of dandruff and I am suffering from Hair loss also
but later on its not working, I still Have dandruff
and also I have developed small pimples on the scalp which are tender and there lot of scaling after scratching the head,
can you please suggest me any cure, also I have a very stressful job of daily 9 Hours
I would first like to know about the bumps.
does the work stress contribute to my hairfall
You mentioned they appear during summer season;
so are these bumps present since the last summer
or did it appear recently?
no, they are present from my childhood, they are very tiny, whenever I rest my head on a wall or anything hard they become tender or else there is no problem from them
Have you seen a doctor to know what these bumps are?
I work for a Medical coding Company I have consulted one of my Colleague who is BHMS 3 years ago, at that time he said they are just benign fat masses no need to worry
but these days they are getting big in size and they are tender to touch
Benign fat masses or lipoma can appear on the scalp too. However if they are getting large and becoming more tender it needs to be looked into.
Without an opportunity to examine the bump, I might not be the right person to confirm if you indeed have benign fat mass or something else.
Medicated shampoo such as nizoral when used rightly, it is known to control dandruff issue.
You need to follow the instructions religiously and use it at least twice a week for better results.
If you have been doing that and have found them unuseful, you can try alternate brands such as scalpe shampoo or 8x shampoo.
Check at large pharmacy stores for its availability.
Are you following?
yes, I am following
Once your dandruff is in control, you should notice hair fall issue improving too.
since you mentioned that you have stress full life,
this stress is going to influence hair fall more than dandruff.
So make amends to handle stress. I recommend a good sleep, regular meals and exercies
sure I will try to include them in my schedulre
Add protein rich food
and plenty of fruits and vegetables for added benefits.
You will know about other means to deal dandruff / hair fall as you visit a dermatologist.
Have you followed?
Surely I am going to include them, I will be very soon meeting a dermatologist for the bumps and dandruff, Thank you Doc for your helpful advices.
Do you have any other question?
not right now.. Bye have nice day.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
