my scalp and back of my neck have small bumps that burn and itch. They appear sometimes in patches, some are single. with progression they develop clear liquid and then flatten out a bit and become like scaly sores. the pain and itching is horrid. I cant find relief from any treatments I've tried. can you help me?

Brief Answer: please send pictures Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to healthcare magic. From your history and description, the possibilities could be scalp folliculitis, scalp psoriasis or pediculosis capitis ( head lice) with secondary eczematisation. It would be better if you could send pictures of the sores so we can assess better. Waiting for your response.
