Hardened scalp

Hey guys,

For whatever reasons, my scalp has been growing harder and bumpier with dark spots at random places for the last ~5 years. The scalp is darker and harder towards the sides and the back. These rough patches do not hurt in any way and they're not scaly either. Furthermore, I have re-occurring pimples on the scalp, although not many.

I've been loosing hair since around 17 years of age.

I visited a few dermatologists but none had anything specific to say. One prescribed some anti fungal cream, but I didn't use it for long. I try to stay away from traditional medicine.

I'm now 27.

The general check up and blood work results from my last doctor visit this past April were great.

My skin has been pretty unstable since puberty. I constantly get re-occurring (same spots) pimples. These are the hard, root infected pimples, not the surface ones.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
