Hi Shelly, thank you for the question.
Your best advice would be to consult a dermatologist who can examine the cysts and advise you on the best treatment options. It certainly sounds like an infective process is developing and it may be caused by follicles being blocked or a skin reaction. One does need to examine the scalp before making a diagnosis and therefore prescribing a treatment such as antibiotics.
Alternatively please post this question on the family doctor expert column (general practitioner) as this is the anti-ageing column.
