: I have under skin, no color bumps that come up
: in fall of year(raking leaves brings this in)
: on back of head. Never on sides or front of head.
: The itching is terrible--any ideas anyone? Thanks
I had the same thing, and one night scratched one in my sleep (which woke me up), and found liquid on my hand. When I examined it closer, thinking it was blood, I noticed that it was a clear/yellowish color. Once the liquid was drained from the bump, it stopped itching! I asked my doctor what it was and he said that everyone has sebacious glands under their skin. For unknown reasons they become inflamed. He suggested warm/hot compress on them which will bring the liquid to the surface and then you can just wash it out. Just a note about all of this. The liquid is oily and if it dries, it looks like ear wax....gross....I know. But here is the thing...it is ear wax as ear wax is secreted from the sebacasous glands in your ears!
Hope this helps!
