DANDRUFF AND SCALP RED SPOTS BUMPS

I am not a dermatologist and you need to see one.

However, I have a problem myself for which I get my results tomorrow.  

If you have dandruff and spots it could be caused by a yeast overgrowth similiar to when babies get cradle cap.  This is not uncommon.  This is why there are lots of anti-dandruff shampoos on sale.  Try Head and Shoulders or a Nizoral shampoo to see if it helps.  

But you need to go to a dermatologist to get it property diagnosed and treated and then you can forget about it.

Hello,
It can be due to dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis. Dandruff can cause either an overly dry scalp with itchy white flakes that may be waxy or greasy, or it can manifest as an oily scalp with scales.
Seborrehic dermatitis, also called adult cradle cap is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease is aggravated by sweating and humidity. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
