Hello Dwinata, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted your doctor for further tests so that the cause can be ascertained? Lumps on the head can be caused by various health conditions that can only be ascertained by a doctor's direct examination. The following are some of the causes of bumps on the head:
irritation due to alcohol
Head lice are not treated with alcohol use on the head. Head lice cause itchy scalp due to feces or tick saliva. Head lice are transmitted through direct contact with the sufferer's head. To treat head lice, you can use shampoo for hair cut containing permethrin which is sold freely in pharmacies. Use this shampoo in accordance with the instructions listed on the shampoo packaging. Use shampoo on the entire scalp and hair when the hair is in half-dry condition then leave it for 10 minutes before rinsing it. You can wash your hair again after 2 days. Use a serit comb to get rid of dead lice. If you still find lice, you can repeat the use of shampoo 1 week later. In addition to using the shampoo, you are also encouraged to wash clothes, bed linen, pillowcases and bolsters, and blankets with hot water.
Please also consult with your doctor to find out the cause of the lump. The doctor needs to do a direct check on your head to determine the cause and determine the next treatment. Do not hesitate to consult with your doctor too if the head lice do not go away.
Hopefully this information is useful.
