Customer Question
My scalp has been...

My scalp has been bothering me. It started itching and burning and I have broke out in large red bumps all over my scalp, almost like paplules that are very painful and itch. What could this be. It gets better for a few days and almost goes away, then starts burning and itching and breaking out again in less than a week

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the bumps better or worse?

For at least a month. Been really stressed, family in hospital and not doing good, another family died, stress at work, but really that is it. It's driving me crazy, so painful and itching

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

Not really

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.
