Default Painful bumps on scalp

I have a few bumps on my head that are almost like pimples but without the head. I am not using any different products or washing methods. I still cowash several times a week and rarely use shampoo unless I have a lot of product buildup. Anyone have these or know what they are?

I tend to get those when I overdo it with ingredients such as; nut oils/butters, triglycerides, or mineral oil/derivatives. I also don't co-wash to avoid this. I use cleansing conditioners, they cleanse more than they deposit...saves me the bumps as a result of buildup. Hope this helps

A good low poo with tea tree should help...

You can develop an allergy or sensitivity at any time, so it still could be caused by a product you use.

Contact dermatitis can cause a lot of painless, zit-like bumps without redness.

Time to start eliminating one product at a time. I hope it's not a time sensitive allergy. I finally have the perfect routine down.

Maybe the pores on your head are blocked ? Try a natural scrub or a gentle shampoo. If it doesn't help, you should see a dermatologist

Sebaceous Cysts? Clogged follicle? Lipoma? pilar cyst? Warm compresses applied a couple times a day may help depending on what it actually is.

Is it sore, tender, red or inflamed?

I would try a mild shampoo. I like the kinky curly shampoo. Once I started using that 2x/wk, my scalp did much better.

I did some research last night. I am thinking folliculitis. I shampooed yesterday and today it hurts more. I'm going to make an appointment with a derm on Monday.
