Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


I fully understand the distress and frustration that can arise when dealing with persistent skin issues that seem resistant to treatment. The fact that these scalp pimples have been bothering you for weeks without showing signs of improvement is indeed concerning.


When it comes to scalp pimples, there can be various underlying factors contributing to their persistence. Conditions such as folliculitis, seborrheic dermatitis, or other scalp-related issues could be at play here. Additionally, it's essential to consider external factors such as your hair care routine, the type of hair products you use, and your overall health status, as these can also influence the condition of your scalp.


Given the complexity of the situation, I would strongly recommend scheduling an appointment with me at the clinic. During the consultation, I will conduct a thorough examination of your scalp to accurately assess the extent of the issue and identify the underlying cause of the persistent pimples. This will enable me to formulate a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.


In the meantime, there are a few precautions you can take to alleviate the discomfort and prevent further aggravation of the pimples. Avoid scratching or picking at the affected area, as this can lead to increased inflammation and the risk of secondary infection. Opt for gentle, hypoallergenic hair care products and refrain from using anything that could potentially irritate your scalp further.


I genuinely look forward to assisting you in resolving this issue and restoring the health of your scalp. Please don't hesitate to contact my office to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. Your well-being is my priority, and I am committed to providing you with the expert care and guidance you deserve.
