I'm a 47 yo male in excellent health. Every few weeks 2 3 scabs, 1 5 mm in size, appear on my scalp then go away. Any ideas appreciated!?

In brief: Bug bites? Eczema?
Are these itchy? What is there before the scab? Neutragena makes a coal tar based shampoo that is very effective and can be used as needed.
