    Strange white 'eggs' on scalp? Bleh!

    Trust me, just typing the word 'egg' made me cringe. I'm your average, typical 34-year old guy in good health, not wanting to be describe something on my head as an 'egg'. Combing my hair two weeks ago I felt a bump on my scalp, so I took a picture of it (first image). Looks like an open wound of sorts. No itching, no discomfort, no pain. Two weeks later (today), I just took another picture and my reaction was, "WHAT THE HECK ARE THOSE????" Sorry if the pics are gross....

    14 year old male - hair suddenly turned curly last year, will it go back?

    So around last June, my hair suddenly turned curly. My hair has been straight all my life, and then it just started to turn curly. Last June was also when I really began to go through puberty, so I'm assuming the two are related. By the way, my mom has straight hair and my dad has curly hair. My question is if my hair will go back to being straight once puberty is over with? I really liked having straight hair and I miss it a ton, I'd love to know if this is just a temporary change or if....

    My Hair is Falling out

    For about the last 6 weeks my hair has started falling out by the handfuls. I have always had constant hair regeneration and some loss but not to the point where it comes out in handfuls like it is now. I had a fall recently and had to take a steroid medication for a bulging disc in my neck. I am wondering if that could have caused the hair loss.

    Sores on Head

    I have sores that seem to be spreading slowly. They are constantly leaking a clear fluid which soaks my hair. I do see some orange crust here and there fall out of my hair. Sores do not hurt but are itchy at times. The sores have a different texture than my actually scalp when I scratch them if feel like scratching on sand. I still have hair on the sores and have not noticed any hair loss.

    Cannot get rid of flakes

    Our family has bad, bad skin. Oily, flaky, extremely dry, depending on the days. For my face, I use Aveeno, which 100% does the job for my face. However, I can't put Aveeno in my hair and use it as I would on my skin. With that, I have tried every shampoo out there; OTC, medicated, natural, etc. I can shower and give my scalp a good scrub (no scratching) and 12hrs later I can sit down and rub my scalp and looks like its snowing. Is there something out there someone knows of that can help me with....

    Lump on back of my head with clear fluids comming out.

    Hey. I got a weird bump on the back of my head which I've had for a long time, went to the docotr and he said it was nothing and yesterday it started to itch so I itched it and after a lot of clear sticky fluid and some yellowish stuff around my hair this is what it looks like. Any ideas on what it can be? Original picture was above the allowed size so I had to cut it.

    Blood Clots and Hair loss

    I realise that cancer patients pass away. But my grandmother has had a blood clot and a blood disease factor 5 Lider since the age of 20. She has lost tons of hair her meds cause hair loss and if she don't take them she dies. My question is could she get financial help with a wig? Cancer patients can but what about people who have that disease where they can't grow any hair? I feel at least my grandma should have equal opportunity as someone who has cancer. She is in lots of pain and a papercut....

It is a pimple like rash that does not come to a head but a break out down the sides of my neck scalp also has similar "pimples" that hurt and cause an itchy sensation at times....almost like flareups. My hair all around my hairline ONLY, has also thinned and is falling out. These 2 things have started at the same time and I don't know if this is linked but I get a very stiff neck....
