Time and patience.: It sounds as though the hair was traumatically removed with the scab. Since you did not have issues prior the scab, it will simply take time and patience to see the hair regrow. Viviscal is a nice over the counter treatment that may speed up the process of hair regrowth in areas such as yours. If the bald spot starts to enlarge, see a doctor. You may have a condition called alopecia aereata.

ONE possibility: is a sebaceous cyst. Please have your doctor look at it. If it is, it can either be lived w/or removed easily. Peace and good health.
