More than one bump?

      Trying to relax about partners bumps on scalp. Planning an appointment but wondering what it could be. There’s one pink bump that’s bigger than the other, doesn’t itch but has dandruff all over it. It’s just pink and raised, no fluid or blood and hair comes out of it. Size of a pencil eraser head. Then maybe an inch away there another same color bump but half the size. And next to that the scalp skin has a red blemish. All of the area carrying dandruff but don’t itch. Anyone have multiple bumps around the scalp? Any clue what it could be if there were to be some guessing. We will be going to a dermatologist, just not sure how long it’ll take. If there’s a way to add pictures let me know

          What you describe may well be cysts, but always best to get the opinion of a professional.
