skin / scalp rash

I have recurring outbreaks of spots on my scalp, neck and shoulders. But nowhere else. They are very difficult to get rid of. They don't look like any of the common skin diseases pictured on the NHS site. Any ideas?

Re: skin / scalp rash

In answer to your question, it sounds like folliculitis, see http://www.dermnetnz.org/acne/folliculitis.html

But really I would need more description e.g. what it looks like? Any symptoms? And I think in the first place it is a good idea to see a GP.
