Could itchy bumps on head only be staph?

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.
