I have had some kind of a rash on my scalp for a couple of months, at first it was just behind my right ear and looked like little pimples, they itched like ***l! Then it seemed like I was getting bigger bumps all over my head and they were itching real bad. A doctor told me it was folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicles) and to use cortisone cream and polysporin ointment. It seemed to have gotten a little bit better and then it came back AND I developed an itchy rash down the middle of my back, on the tops of my shoulders and my upper chest. I scratched alot and got scabs, I still have all of it only sometimes it looks and feels like it is going away. Then all of a sudden it starts again and the itching is unbearable. I dont have any pain, and dont feel sick. Im not on any new meds but I do get ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) for bipolar disorder. Does anyone have any clue what this could be from? I am a RN, on disability-but I have never seen this type of thing before. HELP!:confused: :confused:

  • you could have an infestation of dermodex mites which are invisible to the eye. they live on out skin naturally and feed on the oil from out sebaceous glands but some conditions can cause the to multiply and a family of 25 can live on a hair follicle. They can exist in a pour that won't heal it will keep crusting over. I used RID on my hair face and neck. Then I di very HOT baths using @C 20 mule team borax, 1C 35%H202 (or unstrained natural apple cider vinegar) and soak submerging hair for 10 m
