In brief: Painful scalp bumps

Dissecting cellulities of the scalp is a rare autoimmune condition which causes painful, swollen, and draining bumps on the scalp.
It is similar to hydradenitis suppurativa, which occurs in the groin and under arms. Both are genetic, and hard to treat. They are painful and can leave scar. You cannot treat these yourself at home, you must find a good dermatologist to help you.

In brief: Grenz, biologic

This is very difficult condition to treat.
The cause is a chronic s raring inflammation. Antibiotics, steroids, and immunosuppressives are temporarily effective. Low dose radiation could help although it will probably result in hair loss, .However, the key to arresting the inflammation. Ask for referral to radiation therapist.Another alternative option is homeopathy which takes a long time to work.
