What are you using on your hair?
I have about 20 years of dry itchy scaly awful scalp and tried all sorts of things for it with little result.
The first week I went CG and *stopped using shampoos* it cleared up. My scalp has been so happy ever since.
I didn't have bumps like yours, but I think any sensitivity or irritation will only be worsened using detergent shampoos and harsh chemicals.
I just CO wash and I use one of the cheap little plastic scalp scrubbie brushes, gently, which feels great.
A mix of a few drops of tea tree oil in a maybe a tsp of jojoba oil is nice to massage scalp with -- I do this upside down. Rub well into scalp. I have tons of hair, so the remaining oils don't make me greasy or anything, my hair loves it, but if you have fine hair or less, maybe do this before you go to sleep, then clean hair in the morning.
But most of all -- learn about CG if you haven't already, start reading product labels, and stop shampooing. There are lots of great and very affordable natural and CG products available now.
