Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Pimples on the scalp can be responsible for the headache that you are describing. It is an infection of the scalp most probably a fungal infection or a bacterial infection. The best way would be to get it examined by a doctor or take a photo and upload it to us to have a look at the pimples. You will certainly need a course of antibiotic such as cefexime initially.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
