Wherever I feel pain, I feel that the skin there is sensitive than before and sometimes I get some sores

Let me brief you.
Neurologically headache is associated with many conditions. Strokes, intracranial bleed, brain aneurysm and intracranial mass lessions are the worst conditions presenting as headache.
Basically a scan is requested to rule out such harmful/potentially XXXXXXX conditions.
However your symptoms do not suggest the possibility of such sinister conditions.
Since you have a pre-existing migraine, the current pain may be related to the same or another type of chronic headache.
So do not be tensed and panic.
If at any point of time, if headache feels very severe and uncomfortable, you can get a scan done to exclude such possibilities.
If I need to rule out, which scan do you prefer?
If there are no visible lesions on the scalp, then it is unlikely to be scalp issues.
MRI brain scan is more ideal; however I agree with your neurologist that at this point of time MRI scan is not necessary.
I would suggest you to continue pain killers, and try adequate destressing measures such as sleeping regularly, eating regularly, physical exercise and mediation.
If headache worsens or if you the headache becomes more severe, then you may plan MRI scan.
