A very strange thing found in my hair. A pinkish pimple that is uneven when I touch it feels so rough. I think its also white its on the right side of my head and its really annoying how can I remove it or should i? I have noticed that its breaking apart I think when I once scrapped it. It feels like I can remove it but its painful. What is it?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This is folliculitis. Use topical mupirocin or fusidic acid and oral amoxicillin to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
