What are these hard lumps under my scalp? There are 3 of them, about the size of a pea, hard, no pain from them, just annoying.

See below

They're probably blocked sebaceous cysts and are harmless. If they grow, consult your family doctor.

Extremely dry flaky scalp all the time. Skin in crispy lumps. Sometimes spreads to ears. What is it. Tried every shampoo under the sun?

Crispy Lumps??

Scalp
(Sounds like a breakfast cereal!) Not sure what you are describing...could be eczema, psoriasis or just dry skin. I suggest that you see a dermatologist.

These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you.

Small polyp like lumps on my wifes head what are they doc? when I run my fingers through her hair or massage her scalp it doesnt hurt her there are like ten of them under the skin you cant pop them they dont have a head on them very unusual please help t

Have to be there!

Fingers
Lumps on the scalp are often sabaceous cysts: they grow from blocked glands that produce oil or sweat. They are problematic when they bother the person -or when they become infected. These can be removed by a doctor. Soft lumps may be lipomas: fatty growths. I would encourage you not to squeeze or otherwise try to remove these on your own, though. Have your wife's doctor evaluate her. LGromkoMD

I have a few itchy and sometimes painful soft lumps on scalp, there was only one lump last month, could they be dangerous?

Probably not

Itching
Please see a dermatologist for evaluation. These are probably cysts or an acne like disease called perifolliculitis capitis.

Dr. Shah Chowdhury answered:

I have thickening under my scalp it feels like lumps with stuff in there what could it be it's like fatty stuff?

Tinea Capitis?

Ringworm
Sounds like Ring worm infection in your scalp called Tinea Capitis. The yeast infects root of your hair follicles, make the area thick and dark with hair loss. Check with your Doc ASAP, if so, you will need oral antifungal treatment for 4-6 weeks.
