Red bumps on scalp
I've had red bumps on my scalp for a couple years now. They kind of look like bug bites and they occasionally itch. They are painful at times, but that rarely happens and usually only if I had been itching them a lot. I tried doing some research and the only thing I could find was inflammation. Anyone know what this is or how to get rid of it? Thanks.

RE: Red bumps on scalp
That looks like seborrhoeic dermatitis. This is inflammation of the skin due to over-production of skin cells and a fungus that lives on the scalp of all healthy humans. That's a dermatologist's job as it could be something more serious.

If it's seborrhoeic dermatitis, the treatment is very easy and works very well, but you need to see a dermatologist to get the effective treatment.
