Supportive care , needs work up

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. painful small bumps in head also behind ear are likely infection of scalp, seborrheic dermatitis, infected sebaceous cysts or other fungal infections of scalp need to be sorted out. Talk to a dermatologist, let them have a look and prescribe you some antibiotics and antifungals for the care. I am sure it will resolve.

I hope it helps. take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
