Itchy pus filled bites on the back. Spreading to the neck. What are these?

I HAVE HAD THESE BITES AT THE BACK OF THE NECK AND ON MY SCALP FOR OVER A WEEK NOW. THEY ARE VERY ITCHY AND SEEMED TO BE FILLED WITH PUS. I CANNOT SEE THEM SINCE THEY ARE AT THE BACK OF THE NECK AND ON THE SCALP. I NOTICED THE BITES ON THE SCALP ONE MORNING WHEN I WOKE UP AND FOUND THAT I HAD A VERY ITCHY SCALP. A FEW DAYS LATER THE BITES SEEMED TO HAVE SPREAD DOWN ON TO MY NECK. PLEASE ADVISE.

dear patient do you also suffer from the same complaint on your eye brow region and your arm pit region?....do you have a scalp habitual to dandruff?....have you taken any oral medication recently for any ailment just in recent past? which shampoo do you use for scalp cleansing?....are you a female patient?...if so,...does your scalp get infected by pediculosis scalp usually?.....unless i get an answer to these questions cant tell you the exact diagnosis and the perfect treatment. hence i would suggest you go to a nearest dermatologist and take the medication.
