Bumps on head: Two things come mind right off: 1) shingles. If they are little blisters, and your skin feels tingly, go see a doctor right away for anti-viral medicine, which has to be started within 48 hrs of seeing the shingles rash. Or 2) Sebaceous cysts. Blocked oil glands that fill, can get infected, often need to be drained in the office. See a dr if they get worse or seem like something else entirely. ...Read more
