Exclamation Bumps on Scalp very sore

My girlfriend has been popping these zit-like bumps on my scalp for a week or so, they have been there for a few years on and off and i cant seem to get them to go away. i shower at least once a day somtimes more. i am a very clean person so this is driving me crazy, the bumps are very very very sore and when she pops them, a light yellow puss comes out, nothing solid, just the puss. a scab will form and become sore as well but there are maybe fifty of them on the top-back of my scalp. PLEASE HELP ME!!!! thanks for your time

Re: Bumps on Scalp very sore

Yes I have the same thing and so does my mother from time to time. I think its possible that maybe our scalps are too clean. Try not washing it for a couple of days. And once you start washing it again dont wash close to the roots. Just wash the top of the hair. Your hair may be producing to many oils because you are stripping them away by keeping it soo clean. Hope I helped.

Re: Bumps on Scalp very sore

I would get it checked out by a doctor. It could be some kind of skin infection - bacterial or fungal or perhaps a type of acne. Either way I think your doctor should look at it and perhaps be able to tell you off hand what it is or take a swab of the pus to test for what kind of bacteria or fungus it might be and then treat it accordingly and hopefully you will be free from it after treatment.

Good luck.
