Unhappy scalp, neck , face sores

I have no idea what these things are on my head. I broke out with these pea size red bleeding sores on my scalp. they do itch and are sore. they develop a scab i will pick at it because it itches and underneath is like an indent which will bleed. I have gotten them on the back of my neck and it took over a year to heal,, went to a dermotologist and i really didnt get any answer. they gave me some very expensive topical medicine and that really didnt help. at first i thought it might have been shingles because it starts out sort of lke a chickenpox bump but i have it on the top of my scalp and i have one on my cheek, and had 2 one my chest. I changed shampoos to a non allergenic shampoo. what could it be?

Re: scalp, neck , face sores

Are you using any hair dyes or hair bleaching type agents? I use to use a cap-type streaking kit and would get small itchy sores on scalp. It cleared up when I quit that type of method.

It could be almost any hair product you use that you could be sensitive to.

Re: scalp, neck , face sores

nope no hair dyes or anything on my head or hair except an all natural allergenic shampoo. Now I fave developed three spots on my face,,not like acne or a rash but a sore that becomes red, raised with no head. It will be fill with clear yellow like liquid but not pus, when openned it has a crater or indention in the sore where the liquid was.
