I had a big pimple caused hair loss, please help

I had a big pimple on my head about a month ago. It caused lots of pain even to brush my hair. A few days ago a friend of mine noticed that I had a little bald spot on my head and it happens to be right where I had that pimple. I want to know what is going on and will my hair grow back again? I feel stressed and scared about loosing more hair. Please help.

Pimples can cause temprory or permanent baldnes,due to scarring and infection.It would take 2-3 months to know if hair will grow back or not.If it does not then short term local steroid therapy may help and if the patch is big Plastic surgey may be needed to restore hairs.
