My stylist was a bit heavy handed with my current install. I started getting hair bumps at the nape (like little pimples/blisters). The braids are no longer tight, but the bump0s are still there. I started putting Nyastatin creme on them and it stopped the pain, but that's about it.
 
I refuse to take my install down, bc this has to last until next month.
 
Any suggestions?

AngryA hot steaming towel
That't the only thing that worked for me when my cousin braided my hair like she was mad at me or something hella heavy handed but that install lasted for 6 weeks and when I took it out the braids were still tight like I could have re-installed no problem.

I Suggest neosporin . You may experience hair loss in the area. Run to your stylist for a least a take down of the area affected . good luck .

Thanks. I'll give the neosporin a shot first. I'm trying to avoid a takedown because it's sewn on a net and I have alot going on right now.

They are most def hair bumps from the follicle being pulled to tight.  Similiar to razor bumps after shaving. Tea tree oil is a good remedy for this. Wet a cotton ball with it and dab the effected area. I used to work for a dermatologist and she swears by it!

Hmm, I never thought about tea tree oil. I'll pick some of that up too.

tea tree and emu oil helped me but if at all possible I would make time to take it down.  Your real hair should come first and the nape is a sensitive area to begin with - even without undue tension.

I agree. I have a bald spot that will never grow back due to a tight base.
