Brief Answer:
Seborrhic Dermatitis is the commonest cause of itchy sore scalp.

Detailed Answer:
Hi...
Welcome to "Ask a Doctor"service.
I am Dr Ajeet XXXXXXX

I have gone through your query and here is my opinion.

Let me know if there is any external lesion present?
If yes,please share a pic.

An itchy painful head may be due to many reasons ,most common being seborrheic dermatitis.

Such patients are usually advised to refrain from using any new hair care products and to use some commercially available antifungal shampoo which helps to remove the flakes.

You can take over the counter analgesics like Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen for pain relief.
Antihistamines like Levocetrizine 5mg at night time would help to reduce the itching.

Hope that I have answered your query.

Stay healthy and stay blessed.
Regards.
