scabs keep showing up on scalp

I have a full head of hair. But I go through my head picking and there are random scabs throughout my head that won't seem to go away. I always pick them off, by habit. But I wonder what this may be from?

Re: scabs keep showing up on scalp

Do you scratch your head a lot? Or maybe it could be from having a scalp that is dry. I find them sometimes on my head also, but I know mine is from dandruff.

I have had this too - for many years now! It is not dandruff...they are actual scabs, all over my scalp. Fortunately, I have a full head of thick hair, but unfortunately, I am a picker. Even when I leave them alone, they just appear everywhere. Could it be anything to do with my vegetarian diet? I dont have this problem on any other part of my body, although for the past three years, I have been getting flakes and scabs in my ears and on the back of my neck too. I sympathise with you jonflair! Nobody seems to have an answer as to what this is!

Hi there the scabs could be psoriosis(sp?) i had it as a child.. they are like lumps or something .. {removed} .. and see if the symptons are comparable to what you are experiences
