Ice it!: Accidents happen. The best, easiest & cheapest thing you can do is ice the area as soon as possible. Earlier is better, more often is better than less often. Acetaminophen, if you're otherwise healthy, can be used for pain relief (I tend to avoid ibuprofen). As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more

Wash daily: Try washing your hair and scalp daily with any shampoo. It may take about three months to see full effect of this regimen. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have a sore/tender spot just above the tips of both ears - more in my hair, not towards temples.  Feels like a small depression, not bump.  What cou?

Scalp: This appears to be an irritability/mild inflammation of the scalp nerves,skin or muscle. Check carefully to see any inflammatory changes in the skin. If none,I suspect some irritability of scalp muscles in view of the tenderness. There is a slight indentation of the skull near those regions. Could there be irritability from eye glasses, headphones,brushing or combing? Any new hair dressing? ...Read more

Bruise: Sounds like your temple muscle is bruised and swollen. Maybe a small hematoma (collection of blood). It is possible to have a concussion without loss of consciousness but there would be other symptoms. If it gets worse or not improved in a few days then see your doctor. ...Read more

I have two different small bumps on my head the dont itch or anything. But i pick and then they bleed profusely. Whats up?

Scalps bleed: The scalp has a large blood supply to help the body cool down. So if it's injured, say by picking at it, it will bleed more than might be expected. As for what might the bumps might be, it's anyone's guess without a good photo. Have them looked at by a doctor preferably a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a tiny hard bump on my head it hurts its been there for a few years I get headaches often. The bump sorta moves back and forth?

Head Bump: A bump that you can move back and forth that has been there for years may be just a collection of fat cells called a lipoma. They can sometimes get irritated and cause discomfort if hit repeatedly due to sticking out, but usually do not cause pain. Headaches are likely muscle tension and unrelated to the lipoma, but if new or severe, it is important to see your Dr. ...Read more
