What do you suggest if I have bumps/ spots on and beneath my scalp?

In brief: Cysts/acne necrotica

It's difficult to tell you exactly what this is without examining you, but if what you have are marble size or larger moveable knots in the deeper subcutaneous tissue, I favor pilar cysts.
The only treatment for these is surgical excision. On the other hand, if it's small pimples in the hair follicles I favor a rash like condition such as acne necrotica or lichen planopilaris. See a Dermatlogist!
