Scalp problem

Patient : Dear Doctor, It all started a year ago, after a gall bladder surgery, when I noticed few small bumps on the scalp. They remain unchanged for almost a year and without any hair loss. But then they start growing and became itchy and painful. It all looked and felt as having a huge acne. After bursting, and pus discharge, area around got effected with hair loss, and bumps are again on same spot. Apart of this, some scalp acne and pimples are present on my scalp on almost daily base. I'm sending you few photos, one in time of secret discharge which happened about a month and half ago, and two photos taken today. Thank you in advance, Vladimir M. Dubai UAE
