Bumps on head

6333554?1289226008
I have had this bump on the back of my head for over 2 months. It is full of liquid and sometimes it hurts when I lay down on my pillow or it is touched. They are VERY unsightly and don't seem to be going away like the other ones I've had in the past. I've posted a picture of what they look like.

Please help!

Hello,
The symptoms are suggestive of pilar cysts. Pilar cysts manifest as smooth, mobile, asymptomatic swellings, often in the scalp. Overlying hair loss may be noted. The definitive treatment is surgical excision of the cyst. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
