Red Spots On Head Scalp
Very itchy scalp, flaking, red spots from scratching, feels like crawling on head (and body a little). Just started yesterday.

Tissue, a-aponeurosis, l-loose areolar conn. Tissue and p- pericranium attached ...Read more

Have 3 flu hemangiomas on liver. As adult only I'm getting lots of small red spots filled with blood all over body, face and scalp. Due to liver? Name?
Probably nothing: If the red spots on your skin are cherry hemangiomas / "Campbell de Morgan spots", relax, they mean absolutely nothing. Maybe one person has a hemangioma or two or three in the liver and it's a non-issue itself -- a Gorbachev birthmark, a curiosity. Be thankful for good health. ...Read more
I have 4 tiny red spots on side and back of scalp. 2 near each other and the other 2 not. They do not itch, they are flat not raised at all.
Angiomas can be very small dilated blood vessels. They are usually round and the size can vary from 1mm to
several mm. Over time they tend to become more elevated. Almost everyone will get a couple and some
people get 100's. For someone who gets a lot, your mom or dad probably had them. They can occur any
place on the body. They are benign. A laser can remove them without scarring. ...Read more

There are few red spots on my scalp, which makes my scalp very itchy. How to cure it permanently? Thank you
A few causes: Itchy scalp spots can be many things. I would try some anti-dandruff shampoo 3-5 time per week for a couple weeks, and if that doesn't help, then see a doctor. Sometimes, this kind of problem needs a doctors evaluation. Other things this could be include tinea capitis (fungal infection), psoriasis, discoid lupus, lichen planopilaris, early alopecia areata among many others. Get it checked out. ...Read more

I have red spots on my scalp. It isn't itchy or flaky but it is slightly sore. I've never had a problem like this before. What do you think it is?
I have scalp psoriasis. I have used different shampoos but more spots come the next day/week. Thick, blotchy, red spots.
Prescription meds: The application of baby/olive oil followed by shampoo can help to remove scale, but a topical steroid medication (a foam best for the scalp) is usually the first necessary step. Shampoos accomplish little for most people. Depending upon the thickness of the lesions, scalp psoriasis can be difficult to treat. I suggest seeing a specialist to get things going in the right direction. ...Read more
