I have some concern about my scalp I have never experienced or siren this before. 2 months ago I found that I had something on my scalp that was not normal so I took a picture of it and to me it looks like skin tag it could be called something else. I didn't know that it can also grow on your scalp of your head? I only had one now I am noticing that I have up to 3 on my scalp in different areas of my head that is starting to worry me why am I getting that? If anyone could assist me with some possible answers??? Thank you

Welcome to e health forum.

It is not possible to diagnose a condition only with the description that you have given.

Dermatological conditions can be diagnosed only after duly examining them properly.

Small lumps in the scalp can be due to conditions like
1. Sebaceous cysts,
2. Infections of hair follicles (impetigo, Carbuncle, multiple abscesses),
3. Infiltrative skin deposits of fat tissues (lipoma),
4. tumors like neurofibroma.
5. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema can also present as multiple lumps on the skin.
6. Fungal infections like Tinea Capitis

Hence for a proper diagnosis and proper treatment, you might consult with a dermatologist or your doctor for a proper advice and help.

I hope this helps.
