What could be causing these spots on my head?
I have been noticing scabs on my scalp for the last few months. They aren't large, about the size of the head of a straightpin, and I only occasionally notice them when I'm running my fingers through my hair. By the time I notice them, they usually come right off. My scalp can be itchy sometimes, but I don't scratch it hard enough to cause scabbing. I use moisturizing shampoes to help the dryness on my scalp. Any suggestions as to what may be causing this?

My friend has this problem and it's because she's allergic to shampoos. What she has to do is switch out shampoos about every 3-4 washings. She keeps about 10 different kinds of shampoo on hand and switches them out about twice a week. If she forgets, her scalp breaks out and scabs over.

do you scratch frequently

Psoriasis. Not serious. There is a creme to get rid of them but you have to get a script to get it. Your call.

These could be from ingrown hairs that break off and cause small pustules to form, which then turn to scabs. Do you wear hats or headbands that might be pulling your hair out and leaving ingrown hairs? It could also be from insect bites or a rash from an allergy caused by your shampoo. if it continues or worsens, go to a dermatologist and get a real diagnosis.

You should see a dermatologist by all means. Only a doc can determine if you are suffering from a disease or just a cosmetic problem.

It's probably from your scratching. You probably are scrathing really hard but just don't notice it.

Try a shampoo called T Gel.

Could be psoriasis. Start like small scab, grow and some time its like dandruff only......lots of dry scale. Mostly psoriasis is confused with dandruff. See your dermatologist or you can try homeopathy medicine as well.

how often do you wash your hair? wash once a day

I'm kidding, but it could be chicken pox! I had a chicken pox on my head once, and I scratched it till it bled. I can still tell (6 years later) where it was!

I realize I didn't really help you, but I just wanted to say that.

I had some aliens implant devices in my head, maybe you should look into that too.

Mine does the same thing...its just dry scalp as far as i know...

You have head lice YUK! go to the drug store and get lice shampoo.............. dont forget to delice every where you sit or lay also


you should go to your doctor or a doctor

Coo coo achoo
You might have dry scalp with a dandruff problem. Try a dandruff shampoo---but don't go for the expensive stuff. I use store brand and it works ever bit as good.

My wife has had something similar before and she went to the Dr. and he said it was a form of acne that was brought on by stress. I believe she got a second opinion and they cofirmed it.

Sounds odd to me, but I am no Dr.

What you described does sound sorta similar.

Good Luck

ur ether getting old or u don't wash ur hair good anough

Is it possible that you've picked up fleas or lice? Although pet fleas prefer to stay on pets, owners sometimes get fleas from their pets.

And, contrary to popular belief, lice actually PREFER people who have scrupulously clean hair.

In either case, if what you described were happening to me, my first guess would be that I'm being bitten by insects.

is it a dark scab... if not it's probably just a clogged sebaceous gland, kinda like dried up oil around a hair follicle... use sea breeze or an Astringent everyday and it should help either way.

I get this problem too! I generally just try a few different shampoos until I find one that helps. At the moment I am using Tresemme Vitamin E Moisturising Shampoo which is good on my scalp and my hair. I have tried all the medicated stuff like Vosene and others but they made it worse!!

Sorry I'm not much help! I will watch the other answers and see if they can help me too!!

I think you have dandruff....
You need to use those anti-dandruff shampoos.
Dandruff- is that oil from your scalp and dirt accumulates.

Here are some of the causes:

dry Skin- dry Skin is the most common cause of itchy, flaking skin. Flakes from dry Skin are usually smaller and less oily than those caused by dandruff.

Seborrheic dermatitis- Seborrheic dermatitis is a frequent cause of dandruff. Dandruff caused by seborrheic dermatitis is characterized by red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales.

Psoriasis- Psoriasis causes an accumulation of dead skin cells that form thick silvery scales. It can occur on your scalp, forehead, neck, arms. knees, elbows, trunk, and neck.

Contact dermatitis- Sometimes sensitivities to certain hair-care products or hair dyes can cause a red, itchy, scaling scalp.
