red blood spots on hair scalp

I've notice i have some red spots on my scalp that look like blood, they are a dark red and they are appearing a little bit more. so far i have only notice in the front of my hair. They don't itch or bother me but i never had them before. Any Idea?

Hi and welcome, red spots could be from:
psoriasis
follicalitis
dermatitis
dandruff
ringworm
head lice
Each condition requires specific treatment. Dandruff and mild dermatitis can be treated effectively through home remedies, medicated shampoo or over-the-counter medications. While folliculitis treatment can involve careful hygiene, dermatitis and psoriasis can be made worse by frequent shampooing. If you have any questions about the cause of skin blotches, speak with your doctor. You may be able to treat the condition at home, but you might need some help figuring out what exactly you are treating.
