I continue to have dermatology problems with my scalp. I was curious for any info in regards ***** *****

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Sure, I don't know if it's a form of alopecia or what but it will start like a painful bump and it forms almost like a pimple but it takes weeks if not months to totally heal from one spot.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

This has been going on for roughly 4 or 5 years

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of. I'm a pretty healthy person besides this one issue

I see, you said it's been going on for 4-5 years.

Have biopsies been done or steroid injections tried?

If you have an image you could upload here it would be very helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
