I have an itchy spot on the back of my scalp the size of a ping pong ball. Scalpicin hasn't worked.
I believe Scalpicin: Contains very low dose hydrocortisone. This is a reasonable first-line treatment for one of the most common causes of an itchy scalp spot: seborrheic dermatitis. But it may not be strong enough or the spot could be a sign of psoriasis or other skin disease. I believe your next step is to see Dermatologist, make sure of the diagnosis, and possibly get prescription strength medication. Good wishes:) ...Read more
My 21 yr old daughter periodically gets itchy raised scabs in the back of her head in her hair. They bleed when she scratches & scalp reddens.
My daughter woke up this a.m. with a painless raised red, itchy, swollen spot on the back of her L. hand. I'm worried this may be a spider bite, help.
Mystery bites: Based on your description, this could be a spider bite (but very unlikely to be a dangerous one), or a bite from insect, flea, etc. Sometimes bumps like this represent skin infections which may NOT come from bites. If it looks bad to you now, have a doc look at it today. If looks okay now but increases in size, develops red streaks toward the wrist, or she gets new symptoms, see a doc right away ...Read more
