Odd Scalp Bump

Hidden

Hi! Im not truly worried about this bump, but I will say it is a big annoying. I have this odd sore feeling bump in the middle of my head. Not at the very top but more towards the back middle of the entire head. When I touch it, it hurts and feels a bit painful but when left alone its fine. I rinsed my hair with apple cider vinegar and lemon juice with lavendar oil to naturally cleanse my hair. What is the cause? I have curly hair and I use conditioners and oils everyday. I dont wash everyday!! Maybe once a week or once every two weeks as I heard it is good for my curls!! I also rinse my hair daily just so it looks good. Help?!

Is it an ingrown hair? I get those on my scalp sometimes.

It will go away on its own if that’s what it is. Warm compresses can cause it to come to a head earlier. Not to be gross, but it’s basically like a pimple. If it gets worse you could see your doctor of course.

If it grows larger and doesn’t clear up on its own.
