Customer Question

As my last expert failed to reply in 2 days I am opening this question to all dermatologists who can answer . About 2 months ago I noticed some small pimple like very small sores few in number , on the scalp. I got 3 professional hair washes and they feel great but the problem did not go away. I am not diabetic and in good health. Any idea what would be good to kill these things?There are 4or 5 of them

This is Dr. David

these small pimples on your scalp could be due to folliculitis infection of the hair follicles.

or they could be due to folliculitis.

or seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp

why do you think something needs to be killed?

do you think you have bugs biting your scalp?
