Shingles: You are describing what sounds like an Herpes Shingles eruption. I recommend a quick evaluation and initiation of treatment to lessen the severity and viral shedding. An antiviral medication like Valtex™ 3000mg daily is given for 7-10 days. It's best to treat within 3 days. Also any lesions near the eyelid or eye should be evaluated concurrently by an EYE MD, especially if rash is above the eye. ...Read more

From : From your description, you may have ringworm of the scalp which is actually caused by a fungus, not a worm. Of course, without examining you and sending cultures, i cannot tell for sure what it is. A fungal infection of the scalp is more difficult to treat than fungal infections elsewhere. Treatment usually includes 1-2 months of a prescription oral medication. You should give your doctor a call and have them take a look at it. They will hopefully be able to tell exactly what it is so you can get the proper treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes and no.: For and itch rash of the scalp (the technical name is seborrheic dermatitis), numerous medicated shampoos and lotions are available otc; most contain zinc or tar derivatives. Add bumps and pimples, however, and you probably have a problem in the hair follicles, possibly an infection, and if it's really that "out of control" you should be evaluated by a dermatologist. ...Read more
