When your scalp becomes oilier than usual this annoying scalp condition usually develops. For instance, when you use hair care products or when you don’t wash your hair frequently that include a considerable amount of oil. It’s also more likely to happen during periods of high anxiety for both women and men of all ages.
You may also develop pimples on scalp due to excessive head sweating, which creates a humid environment for bacteria to thrive. There are other causes of this kind of acne including nutritional deficiencies, heredity, hormonal imbalance, drug toxicity, seasonal changes, beverages containing ingestion of certain spices, caffeine, and excessive exposure to sunlight or heat.
This kind of acne typically manifests itself as little white and yellow pustules. When pimples on scalp are caused by yeast they may spread to the whole crown of your head and require specific treatment. You may even get scars that resemble those resulting from chicken pox.
