Hi Connie, mine was like that too. :). I also had small red bumps. Thankfully it didn't last long. My oncologist told me to use an oatmeal bath (aveeno was good). Once all your hair is gone the roots won't be so irritated. :).
We all have different levels of scalp sensitivity.... mine was on the low-level side. My scalp bothered me until I got the stubble out. I scrubbed it when I took a shower with a wash clothe and bar soap. Take care, Sharon
