I have this problem too. And still am. But they are recoving nicely.

And I have lost patches of hair.

My tip, leave your hair short. Do no use gel/wax.

And you don't have to shampoo too much. Over washing will make it worse.

hey, I think this is common for folks who struggle with certain types of acne. I had two of these on my head, and one under my arm! These are not acne, they are also cysts but made up mostly of dead skin cells I believe. The first one I had removed was when I was sort of down and out without insurance and going to a "welfare hospital." I was seeing the doctor a surgical res for something else and she offered to take it off my head for teh copay of $5.00, but I'd have to come to the VA hospital. She took the thing off and stitched me up in a supply closet! Since it was on the sly, we cut the mass in half to see what it looked like. It looked like it was filled with yellowish cottage cheese curds-- (almost like a tiny brain, haha). Because it looked normal it wasn't biopsied. The other two I had removed were the same. Some folks think they are caused by certain waxes in certain shampoos brands, but some folks whose pores clog just naturally make excess globs. But perhaps yours are acne, I dunno. Good luck!
