Pimples on Scalp: Pimples and Treatment

What are Pimples on Scalp?

Scalp pimples is a common skin condition which affect people of all ages. It typically involve the hair follicles becoming inflamed. They can be frustrating enough, and they can be almost impossible to live with since they itch and are hard to reach because they are buried underneath all your hair.

In certain cases they do know that micro-organisms such as yeast, mites or bacteria can thrive in the scalp environment which causes scalp pimples to breakout. In severe cases of scalp pimples a doctor may even prescribe the use of steroids. For milder cases of scalp pimples that don't require medical treatment you simply need to practice good scalp hygiene and the problem will go away or you will preventing yourself from having to suffer from scalp pimples.
