bump on the head?

Does anyone one else have one of these?
It is a bump on my head. It starts out really tiny and gets bigger.
I believe it's called a plugged oil gland or something.
Does anyone else have one of these and what do you do for it?
I hope hair is the correct board for this question because it is right next to the hair.

Re: bump on the head?

I'm just guessing at this but you may have what is known as a sebaceous cyst. They get larger and seem to be under the skin but they will eventually pop open. You just have to wait until time for them to open. My daughter had two at one time, one of them took a very long time and the other just a few weeks. Other than just keeping a check on them, I'm sorry I have no other advice.

Re: bump on the head?

Thank you for your reply! I've been waiting and waiting.
Was your daughters bumps kind of hard? The bump feels pretty hard not bone hard though.
