An itchy scalp can be a symptom of a staph infection, and it also can be caused by other conditions, like folliculitis, hives, parasites (scabies), or a cyst. For example, folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicles that present symptoms of red and itchy boils. Because a bump on the head can have so many causes, it should be looked at by a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Do bumps on your head reflect your intelligence and personality?

No. According to, "Phrenology" is "the study of the shape and protuberances of the skull, based on the now discredited belief that they reveal character and mental capacity". A blow to the head could cause a bump, and a severe blow could cause changes in intelligence and/or personality. However, the shape of the head, with or without bumps, does not reflect intelligence or personality. Bumps on the head give accurate information about the bumps on the head, nothing more. They are bumps. An interesting piece of trivia: in a test of Phrenology the skull of the Marquis de Sade was said to possess the attributes of an aged father of the church.
