Hello Farhan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading your complaint there are several possible conditions that can cause your complaint such as:
Folliculitis (hair infection)
Fungal infections of the scalp
To be sure, it is basically recommended to check your complaints further to the doctor for direct evaluation, however, due to current government recommendations and your complaints are not included in an emergency, you can use alternatives by consulting online through Chat doctor on the HealthReplies.com application.
In the meantime there are some things that are recommended for you to try to do at home such as:
Do not scratch your head, especially in areas that experience complaints because it can only aggravate complaints
Maintain cleanliness of the head by shampooing every day by using a mild shampoo and low allergy
Avoid taking drugs or using any topical medication without a clear recommendation from a doctor, also avoid making any effort to remove the lump
Clean the liquid on your scalp using sterile gauze that has been moistened with wound cleaning fluid gently until completely clean every day
If you do not touch the affected area, wash your hands immediately using soap and running water for at least 20 seconds
Also pay attention to whether there are other things that aggravate or trigger the appearance of your complaints such as food, certain brands of shampoo, etc., if any, avoid as much as possible
I hope this helps.
