Hi I have a smooth bump on my head and
Fungal infection of scalp, tinea capitis.
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
I would like to see a photo of the lesion you are having to help me better through diagnosis.
I suppose it may be tinea capitis a fungal infection of scalp.
I think you can use antifungal shampoo containing ketoconazole. It is cured with oral antifungals but they are not advisable in pregnancy.
You can also use antifungal ointment to apply over it.
Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
I see the photo and is tinea
OK. I see the photo you attached.
I still think it is a fungal infection of scalp.
It is caused by tinea, a type of fungus ( there are different types of tinea) and a person is contaminated from objects like combs, or towels of another person. Some types of tinea pass from animals to humans.
Further examinations like microscopy or fluorescence are needed to determine the kind of tinea.
Prevention consists of not sharing personal items and not using contaminated items.
Doesn't seem an overabundance of yeast.
It has nothing to do with vitamin definitely.
I think you should need oral antifungals but can't be taken while pregnant.
