red brown spots scalp concerns

Like facial skin, the scalp can develop red or brown spots. Red spots may be either broken capillaries or a sign of another skin condition such as psoriasis, dermatitis, folliculitis, or even acne.

Brown spots on the scalp are usually due to sun exposure. The ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause the skin to develop hyperpigmented spots in sun-exposed areas, such as the scalp, arms, and hands. While brown or red spots on the scalp can sometimes be hidden by hair, many affected individuals have thinning hair or bald spots and may desire treatment to erase these colored spots.
