Sore Scalp

Hello,  
Can anybody help with this?  For a good few days I have a patch on the bottom left of my scalp which is very sore to touch.  It does just feel like that feeling you get if your hair has been tied up tightly.
I also have a couple of weird marks on my face  -  very small just like the skin has rubbed off?
I had a tattoo and nose piercing a week or so ago - am I being paranoid?  Any connections?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the patch. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, allergic reactions, neuro-muscular causes, hormonal/ endocrine/ autonomic issues. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
