Dr. Louis Cooper answered:

I have a small lump on left backside of neck. Near the ear feels like a bruise but didn't hit head, and top of scalp very tiny bumps. And a stiff neck?

See your doctor

Stiff_neck
If you truly have a stiff neck--cannot touch your chin to your chest or move head from side to side, you must be seen urgently by your doctor or emergency room--if you have fever this becomes more urgent. If you have any scalp problems this may cause tiny bumps or if you pull your hair tight as some do for braids, this may be related. See your physician.

Small red bumps on scalp of head?

? folliculitis

Red_bumps
It sounds like folliculitis, a bacterial infection of the scalp similar to acne. If you look close you may see a pustule when they first break out. They are often itchy/tender and scratched at producing a small scab. They tend to come and go. There is no permanent cure, but I often treat flares with antibiotics. I would go see a dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment options.

My daughter has developed some small, blister-like bumps on her scalp. What can this be?

See your doc

These can be something as simple as a sunburn, or a topical fungal infection like tinea (ringworm). However, it can also be a staph infection or another such issue. Somebody needs to lay eyes on this and make a determination.

Trichilemmal or pilar cysts are common intradermal or subcutaneous cysts, occurring in 5-10% of the population.Greater than 90% occur on the scalp, where trichilemmal cysts are the most common cutaneous cyst.Trichilemmal cysts are almost always benign.

I have small red painful bumps on the lower part of my scalp at the bottom of hair line. They go away and come back.

?folliculitis

Scalp_hair
This could be caused by inflammation or infection of some of the hair follicles of that part of your scalp. A dermatologist could diagnose the problem if you were examined when the problem is active. In the meantime try a good detergent shampoo which is good for removing excess oils.

I have four small bumps on my scalp all at different regions. Its sore when I touch them but they are not red. Just raised bumps. What are they?

See a DR

Tactile
Most likely TRICHILEMMOMAS. These may be multiple. Unless inflamed they do not cause much distress. They are removed by simple surgical proceedure. They are mostly related to genetic factors and are a type of benign cyst.
