In brief: Most are quiet
Most cases i see are for painless hair loss and/or irregularity in the skin of the scalp.
Rarely there is a boggy painful swelling. Some have tried otc products with little success.

In brief: Swelling pain
The infection spreads along scalp and down hairs to cause swelling pain amd discharge.
It can become secondarily infected with bacteria. It requires a course of oral medications such as Griseofulvin or Lamisil (terbinafine) to eradicate the infection.
