Dr.tiwari :

Hello,

Dr.tiwari :

It looks from your details that you may be suffering from the folliculitis of the scalp.

Dr.tiwari :

This is the inflammation & infection of the oil producing glands of the scalp.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

the bumps are different sizes and not puss or fluid filled

Dr.tiwari :

They may not be as there may only be inflammation.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

i did see doc at a clinic who prescribed amoxicillin?

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

on it for 3 days now the bumps do appear to be smaller

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

the lymph node on my left side of my neck has gotten smaller

Dr.tiwari :

As this is a bacterial infection,this is the reason that he has prescribed an antibiotic.

Dr.tiwari :

The lymph node of the neck drains this part ,

Dr.tiwari :

so that it is enlarged.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

i believe it is a 10 day supply

Dr.tiwari :

All finding are supporting the folliculitis.

Dr.tiwari :

You should continue on this.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

today i was working out and the bumps did have a burning sensation

Dr.tiwari :

You may also take care of your immunity & practice good hygiene.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

tonight they tend to tingle

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

but are sore to touch

Dr.tiwari :

You should also take a supplement of the zinc 30mg ,vitamin C 1000mg per day.

Dr.tiwari :

Take an anti inflammatory analgesic like advil or aleeve ,this will help with this abnormal sensation.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

i am very fit and active take several workout supplements

Dr.tiwari :

That is good.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

this is the first time this has ever happend

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

how long should i give it before typically seeing improving results

Dr.tiwari :

You should take these medicines for at least for 7 days.There may be significant improvement after 7 days.

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

ok i will certainly keep an eye on this and give the antibiotic time to kick in

JACUSTOMER-tkanij3t- :

thank you for your time accept i will!

Dr.tiwari :

Hope this will help you.
