Ok so I got a haircut today, cut my hair pretty short. I was looking at my head and I noticed that on both sides of my head, and a little bit on top, I have these red acne-like spots. They're not really like bumps or anything, and i cant really feel them that much when I rub my hands over my head, but I started thinking about this and I realized that I scratch my head a lot. Anyone have any recommendations or advice about what I should do about this?

Here is a picture. This is just above my left ear.

Looks like psoriasis. I have it and my second youngest has it too. When I shave my head close, they look practically like that. Btw, do you have the white patches anywhere on your body (mostly in joint areas like knee caps or elbows?). It can also show up on toes. That would be a dead giveaway too.

As a doctor with a phD I see you have a rarity of this.

my guess is cherry angiomas ( red moles ). they are usually flat when they first start.
