bumps on head

I have these bumps on my head that are filled with pus but even after they pop they come back. Lately I have two very painful ones that still won't pop not sure what it is or how to treat it

Hi there,
I would suggest that you see a doctor and get examined. These bumps could be due to any infection or  fatty deposits. One differential is a lipoma. Lipoma refers to fatty deposits that may also involve the scalp. If filled with pus you may need antibiotics and antiinflammatories.Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I sincerely hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
