Red, puss-filled bumps on scalp
Asked Dec 28, 2006, 12:40 PM
Last week, I noticed that the back of my neck felt a little soar whenever I stretched it too much and the sides of my head kind of hurt too. Then, 2 days ago, I took a good look at my scalp (right above my temple on the right side of my head) and I saw little red bumps with puss-filled bumps. It was in a patch. There are some on the left side of my head and in the back. The bumps are itchy and slightly sore to touch.
I thought it might have been hives so I started taking Benadryl yesterday, but I can't really tell if the bumps are going awawy. I think that I might have had a reaction to a new Shampoo I used. Also, I noticed that the bumps are most predominant where I lay my head on the pillow when I sleep. So, I'm washing my sheets in hot water. Still, I've been reading that hives don't usually last for more than a day and I haven't found any pictures of hives that look like the bumps that I have, I told my mom that if they don't start going away by tomorrow, I want to see the doctor.
Does anyone know what it could and/or of any ointments of some kind that could make it go away?
