Pain in scalp with pimple
Hello. I have oily hair so I do not use hair at all. I shampoo twice a week but I most of the times develop pain in scalp due to pimples. What should I do. Doctors I visited in past just gave some medicated shampoo but that didn't help. Please recommend

Based on your description of pain on the scalp it looks like a superficial bacterial infection usually caused by staphylococcus aureus. Sometimes they co-exist with fungal folliculitis and can be determined with more precision during a consultation. Kindly consult a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and treatment plan. It is also important to prevent their relapse once you have got it cured. A decolonization regimen suggested by your doctor will help.
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
Good diet. Moderate work-up.
