Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

these small red bumps can be due to dermatitis or blocked skin pores or even skin allergies to irritants

your dry scalp could be due to seborrheic dermatitis. you may need an antifungal shampoo.

can you upload a clear jpg photo of those red bumps so I can better help you?

Ok I added some pics.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

dry scalp with those red bumps could be seborrheic dermatitis of your scalp which is a low activity fungal infection of your scalp

you may benefit from an antifungal shampoo like Head and Shoulders or Selsin Blue shampoo for 3-4 weeks which could help

if that doesn't work you may have to see a doctor or dermatologist for stronger prescription treatment
