Do you experience hair loss directly over these bumps or is the hair loss dispersed over the entire scalp?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 2 months ago.

The bumps you mention likely are pilar cysts, found mostly on the scalp and they can come and go over the years. They are rarely painful unless they burst open in which case they have to be drained surgically.
