After reading your history it appears that you might have developed seborrheic dermatitis of scalp. I advise you to not pinch or pop the area otherwise these areas are very prone for getting secondary infection. You can apply an steroid with antifungal cream such as cortisone with clotrimazole cream. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Do not apply any oil or any other cosmetic product over the affected area. If there is increase then consult a dermatologist for higher treatment
