Customer Question

I found a bump on my scalp two days ago. I picked at it a bit and it's kind of painful. I don't know how long it's been there and I've had a lot of sun exposure.

Thanks for information

It seems like a localized infection in the area .Infection is likely originating from the hair follicle . I would suggest that you should apply Bactrim cream over the area . For pain you can take tablet Advil or Motrin. It is likely to get better in few days.In case if it does not improve in a few days do visit your doctor for an examination.

Good luck
