A 34-year-old female asked:
I have an itchy scalp and two small bumps at the bottom of my head on either side. Could this be allergy related since it is fall? I have been sweating a lot as well due to increase in exercise. Skin on body itches as well.

Sounds more: like an infected scalp and the "lumps" may be enlarged lymph glands which drain the scalp! A "hands on" exam is indicated and an anti-dandruff shampoo with a course of oral antibiotics may be indicated! Hope this helps Dr Z
