    Strange, painful and sometimes itchy bump on scalp

    Hello everyone! I am a bit concerned...I have had this painful bump on my head for some time now. When I went to urgent care several months ago I was told it was folliculitis, however the treatment did not help. I have researched over and over and I'm unable to figure out what the heck this is, please help!

    I'm trying to figure out how to post the photo...

    RE: Strange, painful and sometimes itchy bump on scalp

    Hi ,

    Your doctor or a dermatologist is the best person to see about anything strange on your skin. An in-person exam is needed to determine exactly what this bump is and how it can be treated.

    In the meantime, here is a slideshow that has photos of different kinds of lumps and bumps that can show up on your skin. It may be helpful to look through the slides and see if anything is similar to the bump you have: http://wb.md/2mzbfQ3

    We are working on a photo upload feature, but for now, if you'd like to upload a photo you will need to first post it on a photo sharing site and then post the link here. Hope this helps!
