Hi Dr Ashori here. Was there any pus or blood in the area?
How is the scalp now? Do you have any skin issues in the area?
Could you explain a little more? You mean there was blood there?
It could be that you had an allergic reaction on the scalp or possible eczema.
Do you have a picture you could send?
Psoriasis can cause this as well.
Either one of these is benign and can be treated with topical hydrocortisone, you can use the 1% cream on the area 2x per day.
Let me know if that helps.
The image is a little hard to see but I can see where the hair is clumped up and stuck to the skin.
I would recommend washing it right away since it's been over a day since you had this. That way if there is any infection you will prevent it from getting worse. But there is no redness of the skin below the area so it's unlikely to be an infection. Likely an allergic reaction. I would recommend starting to put a little bit of hydrocrotisone 0.5% to the area twice daily, just a pea-sized amount should be okay. Use it for a week, that should calm it down.
Hope the information helped.
