hi,
this may be due to poor hygiene of the scalp skin.
you should wash the hair and scalp throroghly every day with cleansing agents and betadine solution for scalp.
thanks

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

If there is Folliculitis then it is probably due to bacterial infection and a microscopy of scraping from the bumps can help in confirmation..
Other cause can be allergic reaction..
So my suggestion is to consult a Skin specialist and get evaluated..
In case of bacterial infection along with antiseptic lotion like Dalacin a long script of oral antibiotics can also be advised..
For allergic reaction steroid lotion and oral anti allergics can be given..

Hope this helps.

Taking a suitable antibiotic fie the type if infection is the key treatment plus usual wash and skin care ..
A bacterial sensitivity is advised to get the proper treatment ..

May be there is another focus of infection elsewhere in your body …

Swab from the lesion would be great and also search for another source of infection in it body ، ،u May need systemic antibiotics
