Thanks for your query.
Usually people come to know later in their lives about such little deformities having no much importance, however it can be Scalp Dysesthesia in which patient may feel indentations, pain, burning,itching, crawling, lightness etc
It can be treated with Doxepin or Amytriptiline.
Maintaining optimum weight, proper diet, vitamin supplements, exercise, treating stress and depression which will help in reducing the symptoms.
Visit your doctor for more information and management.
Hope it helps.
take care!
