Do you have dandruff like patches on your scalp? I suggest you to take T.Hifenac drug BD (Twice daily after food) for 3 days for relief from pain.

Scalp Pain along with hair breakage is due to many reasons like Stress, Migraine, eczema, psoriasis, and etcetera.

Ultimately everything is because of heavy stress so I advise you to take periodic head massage and maintain good hygiene. If symptoms still persist, then I suggest you to consult a physician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
