    HI
    I just ran into this forum but I am wondering if someone can give me any insight into somethign that just started out of the blue.
    A few days ago I developed these weird sores on my scalp. They are all located in the same place on the left side of my head and toward the bottom of the skull. I figured I was allergic to my shampoo or something. But then I started to get this really painful swelling at the base of my skull on the left side. It's a few inches away from these weird sores. And it is REALLY swollen and painful. Does this sound remotely familiar to anyone? I'm not sure if I should be worried. I can't go to the doctor until next Friday because I am on a business trip right now. But does it sound like I am dying or something?

    Hi Willowanne,

    Don't jump to conclusions..it could be reactionary to specific hygiene products you are using. Certainly any type of swelling about the head can cause a certain level of tenderness. Even though you are traveling and if your truly worried always call your personal physician. He/she can always speculate what it might be and could offer suggestions to help you not to worry so much. Sometimes worry is our greatest enemy...good luck!!
