Question: Red spots on back of neck


 nikkin - Sun Nov 21, 2004 8:34 pm

I need to know what these are, please help me!!!!! A year ago, I started getting these little red bumps on the back of my neck they are under my hair line and there are a few in it. I tryed pulling my hair up to see if it would go away if i let it air out a little, well they did they went away for a while, but then they came back only there are more they arn't that big, and they arn't itchy or anything. They don't look anything like pimples either. I havent went to see the doctor yet, but i think i'm going to. I have no idea what they are. I really would like to know. Will someone please help me find out what they are? and what caused it, and if so how can I get rid of them? I hope it isn't something serious. Please help if you can!

User avatar Hi!

I am afraid it would be difficult to comment on your 'spots' without proper examination. Do provide us feedback as to what it was.
