Few weeks ago I got sore swollen bumps on the back of my neck around my hairline. Soreness is now mostly gone but bumps are now scabby/itchy. Cause?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Folliculits

an inflammation with possible infection of hair follicles.
This requires medical examination and both oral and topical antibiotic therapy. Without a photo, I strongly recommend immediate medical evaluation.
