    Scab on scalp that won't heal

    About a month ago, I had a, I think, sebaceous cyst on my scalp rupture by itself. It gave me a few annoyances, but after a couple of days of drainage, the spot (about 1/4 of a centimeter in diameter) scabbed over and everything seemed to be healing correctly.

The picture is a little red because I was picking at it pretty furiously....
