Itchy, bleeding scalp

I have had itchy patches that itch really bad and when I itch them they bleed. My scalp will be red with blood, but it is a clear liquid that makes my hair stick together at night. It started about 3 years ago and then went away and came back last year and never cleared up.

When I do itch my head I have these big clumps of scabs that come off with it. I have tried T-gel shampoo and nothing is helping. Can you suggest anything? I have also put Neosporin.

Itching and/or burning scalp and hair loss

I have a 25 years old son who constantly complains of itching burning sclap and has started to loose his hair.
I have taken him to several doctors and none of them has treated him properly because the problem persists.
This is causing him a lot of stress. Can you help?
Thank you.

Scalp Sores that start out like pimples on your head are symptoms of what? (causes itching, redness, hair loss & thinning)

I saw this asked in another closed question and was so relieved to know I was not alone. I'm 31 and have lived with this since I was about 16 or 17. It was nothing at first and I figured it would go away, but in the last few years it has been the worst. I will get small red "pimples" that can turn into sores if I scratch them - and let me tell you they do itch alot! I went to a docotr one time and he said it was oil related, but wasn't sure. Told me to use vaseline on my head. All that did was make a mess and make it more oily.


I stopped that and used "Sea Breeze" facial cleaner that seemed to dry them up somewhat. This was a while back, and like I said it's gotten worse. My hair is much thinnner and tends to fall out more during showers and combing. I have been stressed lately and think that is not helping the situation. It's really embarrassing. My hair is kind along now because if I cut it I would be bald and patchy... I just keep a hat on to keep curious looks away. I have not been able to find much information on this and hope there are others who have overcome this with a proven remedy.


If anyone has information, please post it.

Good luck to all with this as I know how it feels!

In one way, I'm glad I've found other people who have this condition, because I thought I was unique.  From reading all three threads on this subject, it seems the main thing we have in common is the condition, not the lifestyle, age or sex is consistent


I've had this off and on for about 5 years, but it's getting bad right now.  I went to a doc-in-the-box about 3 years ago, and he prescribed an antibiotic that cleared it up, but not too many months later it came back and gets better and worse periodically.

Mainly I get it on the back and sides of my head but the past couple of weeks, I've had break outs just outside my scalp.  I'm getting worried about it and I'm going to go to a dermatologists even though most of you have said they are no help.  I'll try the iron supplements and do my best to keep my hands off.  BTW, I don't think the dairy products thing or breads is a cause, at least for me, since I don't consume any dairy except cheese occasionally, and  eat very little bread.  If I find anything that really works, I'll post back here.

My dermatologist told me mine was anxiety.  Same symptoms little pimples and they itch and if I scratch they bleed.  None of the anxiety medicines have cured it, but they say it is not curable jut manageable. Especially unless you can get everything out of your life that causes your anxiety.  Sad to say you cannot get rid of husbands family members etc. that flare up you breakouts. 


But also some foods can cause it.  It is a combination of the stress factor and the food you may eat while you have anxiety.  It is something you have to work on every day of your life.  I hope my doctors can find a cure. They did just find out I have lupus, I have COPD, and arthritis, but these all add to stress and anxiety.  Good luck to every body.

I have sores and bleeding scabs on my scalp that are itchy and irritating.

They have been present for many years now. Sometimes I have a lot of them and at times only one or two. The skin around them on my scalp is also flaky and scaly in texture - although I would not say it was dandruff, just dry.

I have been embarrassed to see my GP about this. I hoped that it would get rid of itself but after 10 years I realize that it is not going away.   Any advice would be welcome.




Comment #8

This is a wee bit TMI, I guess, but I really HAVE to ask someone about this because it's driving me absolutely insane.

My scalp constantly hurts. It's like I have dandruff, but the flakes are very big, and if I look at one, I can see spots where my scalp's been bleeding. It's constantly itchy and stinging too, and I sometimes get these parts where - well, this is going to sound absolutely disgusting - but, you know when you have a spot that's burst, and some of the pus dries that strange, bead-like, see-through yellow way? I get that - it's like dried spot pus. It's DISGUSTING. And my scalp burns like it's on fire every time after I have a shower.

Please help? Someone has to know how to stop it!

So about a two years ago this started to happen whenever i workout or get any kind of sweat going my head itches really bad. It isn't painful it is just incredibly annoying it feels exactly like a bunch of needles pricking my scalp non stop. Then after about 15 minutes it goes away.


I have tried everything, tons of soaps nothing changes it at all. The bad part is it actually keeps me from working out cause it is so annoying to have to itch my head non stop. One time i got so annoyed I went to a dermatologist, he didn't help a bit. I have researched it on the internet and while it seems like a common problem nothing worked for me. My brother and dad say its normal, but I can't believe that!

I know sometimes we have dry itchy scalp. But this case is different. My scalp usually itches me so bad in the middle of my head. This has been going on for more than a year now. Sometimes i get carried away and begin to pull my hair out right on that spot.. I am afraid i might get bald on that spot.


This is not normal, is there any medical condition for this? it itches so bad just on that spot such that i pull my hair and by the next day, i begin to feel pain there from scratching and pulling...

Anybody knows what might be the cause?


Comment #11

I tend to feel very itchy on my scalp and can't help but scratch it ALL THE TIME - when I'm at work, when I'm sitting on my bed - my fingers keep reaching in there and picking at it. Does anyone know what I can do to reduce the pimples on my scalp and to prevent the itching. I'm trying this tar shampoo and I tried Nizoral but I'm not seeing enough of a difference. Is it diet related?





Comment #12

I am finding a couple (2 to 3) new pimples on my scalp each week.  They are not concentrating in a specific area--they are appearing randomly on all parts of my scalp.  I have never had an acne problem.  They do go away after a few days--but, this is quite bothersome.  My hairstylist noticed them as well.

My friend has bumps on his scalp that drive him nuts and itch like crazy. I have spent a great deal of time popping them and trying to figure out why they keep coming back. Sometimes he gets a really hard lump under his skin that get bigger and bigger until its popped and oozes out one of the hair follicles. Its pretty gross unless you're like me and get a sick satisfaction from popping ingrown hairs and pimples. Some of the bumps are ingrown hairs but then some are just puss pockets under the skin.

I have a couple theories as to why he gets them. However, I'm just wondering if any one else has found a cure for the pesky buggers.

One of my theories is that he cant scratch his head. I think this causes his hair follicles to clog where as an AB person would be able to scratch the itchy build up away, thus keeping the follicle clean and clog free.

I also think that the under growth hair (the hair that is regrowing) is curling slightly and growing into the skin instead of straight up out of the follicle. I would assume that an AB person would get a pain in their scalp and itch it, which would maybe straighten out the hairs growth path.

These are just some of my thoughts on the problem. Any advice or thought on the matter are welcome and appreciated! Thanks

Iím a african american female 27yrs old that is having terrible time with my hair & scalp for about the past 2yrs i have been developing bumps on my scalp mostly in the back the bumps come & get extremely sore & can be popped & filled with puss & then it get very itchy & pain a lot. Have you heard of these symptoms before cuz am dying need. thanks in advance.

You need to see a good dermatologist. You may have a variety of conditions that are dangerous and will cause you to eventually lose hair. The internet is not a place to gamble the future of your hair and your health.

I have had a scalp disorder (that sounds similar to the disorder you describe on your website) for about five years now. It has gotten increasingly worse, and I have been on several anti-biotics (including minocycline and cirpo) that work while on it but do not cure the disorder permanently. I have had a biopsy that reveals that some kind of bacteria is causing the problem.

I am eager to kick this problem, but also somewhat wary of online products. I came across your website recently and thought that someone that has actually suffered from a similar problem might be able to help. so I was hoping that you could email me and further describe your condition so that I can decide whether your cure might be helpful to me. Please let me know.






Comment #17

My scalp itches terribly in one spot. I'm not sure how to tell whether it's dandruff, dry scalp, an allergy or some silly nervous condition that makes me scratch it.

Basically, there is a large spot behind my right ear, down by the neckline, that itches. It has for, I'd say, several years. When I scratch it, usually vigirously, flakes fall out onto my right shoulder, though I suspect these are just skin cells. I scratch it until I come up with red beneath my fingernails on a regular basis.

Info that may or may not be relevant... I've never
noticed flakes or itching in other areas of my head. I've been told a few times by different hair cutters that I have unusually thick hair down in that area between my ears. It's difficult to see much of the scalp by parting the hair there.

Also, a few years ago, I became suddenly allergic to something in makeup, don't know if whatever that was could be in shampoo too. The weird thing is that any sudden stressful, nervous, anxious situation will cause the area to itch overwhelmingly, and pretty much if I become stressed, I am immediately vigorously scratching this spot on my head. I'm right handed and this is the most convenient spot on my head to reach.

If I'm scratching it when I'm nervous, does that mean there's nothing really wrong and that it's irritated because I'm scratching it, not the other way around? If that's the case, I'm worried there's nothing to help it. It's very hard not to scratch an itch.

Over the years, I've tried dandruff shampoos, dry scalp shampoos, hypoallergenic shampoos, tea tree oil, deep cleaning, deap conditioning, etc., with no improvement. I pay very special attention to rinsing this area, since it's more difficult than the top of my head, to make sure that there isn't a buildup of stuff happening there.

Also, I'm not really sure who has domain over your scalp. Does a dermatologist deal with hair issues? Would I be laughed out of the office and told to go get selsun blue? Can they help at all if it's a nervous condition?

 Comment #19

I hope you can help, i have tried to find answers for over 7 years, both with GP's and also more recently with a dermatologist, still without any answers. I have a very concerning issue with my scalp, across my hairline, crown and generally across the top of my scalp i suffer from itching, often so bad i cant sleep and it affects my concentration at work. I have small white grain like bits forming on my scalp.

These sand like bits are sometimes loose on my scalp but also attached to my scalp. When my hair comes out, which has become more apparent since my condition has worsened over the past 6 months and is now also a major concern,  there is a build up of white substance on the follicle.  My hair also becomes very greasy very quickly, within 24 hours of washing it, my hair becomes greasy and within 48 hours it looks disgusting. I also suffer from very tender small spots within my scalp, which have a yellowish appearance. These are not that common, around 3 - 4 a week.

Additional Info:
I am a male 29 years old, living a healthy lifestyle , good diet and also exercise regularly.
I do get dry skin very easily, i moisturize all the time. I researched into this condition and i believe itís a fungal condition.... but Nizorel doesnt seem to be helping to clear the condition.

Please help!!

I have a problem that I can't find out what it is. Two days ago, I went to get a haircut and my stylist found a lot of real small bumps stuck to my hair.  She said they looked like lice, but they aren't.  These are really stuck to my hair.  Each strand of hair has about ten to  twenty of these mysterious bumps.  I don't know what they are or how to get rid of them. Please help me to find an answer.  Thank you for your time.
