I feel gross...

...but I have to ask. I don't know any other dreadheads who I could ask, so I figured I'd see if any of you had the same problem:

I've begun getting irritation on my scalp. Sometimes, well a lot of the time, it shows up as something along the lines of pimples. Now, I've never heard of anyone getting zits in their scalp, but here it is on my head! Sometimes my head itches like mad, but generally that goes away when I wash, as do the pimples sometimes. They (the acne, not the itchiness) return soon after though (like a day or two later) and it bugs the hell out of me. I don't let my girlfriend play in my hair anymore really because I'm pretty embarrassed about it.

I'd never had this issue before I had dreads.

So, has anyone ever had this problem? It's so freaking gross and frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. Any tips?
