Thanks for writing to us.
Fromthe description provided, your child could be having boils over scalp, seborrheic dermatitis, lice infestation or fungal infection.
The diagnosis can only be confirmed after examining the scalp. For the same visit a dermatologist nearby. In the interim,your child may use a betadine scalp wash to help these lesions settle but a definite treatment will be required depending on underlying cause
Hope this helped.
