Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you mean that lump appeared on your scalp?
Lumps on the scalp can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Folliculitis or inflammation of the hair follicles
Boils or boils
Acne / acne
Other causes, such as atheromal cysts, lipomas, or other benign skin tumors (lumps tend to persist if this condition is caused)
Folliculitis, boils, and pimples can all occur on the scalp and have similar symptoms, but the causes can vary. Folliculitis can occur due to infections in hair follicles by bacteria, viruses, or fungi, it can also be caused by hair that grows into the skin (ingrown hair). Boils can occur due to bacterial infections of the skin. Meanwhile jerwat can arise due to blockage of skin pores by dead skin cells and dirt mixed with sebum (skin's natural oil). To be able to know for sure the cause of the lesions on your skin, you should consult a dermatologist so that you can be examined directly.
The following are some things you can do:
Avoid scratching or squeezing lumps (if caused by infection, scratching can cause the infection to spread)
Keep your scalp clean by shampooing regularly. If your hair is dirty and oily quickly, you can wash it every day
Keep your accessory clean on the head (for example your hat). If you use a hat often, make sure you wash your hat regularly and dry your hat when it is wet with sweat
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
