Hello shajahan;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Itching in head can be due to dandruff;lice;infection of bacteria or fungi;and even allergic.So to start with you can use a antidandruff and antifungal shampoo like Danclean or Nizral 2% which will help to reduce the dandruff and even treat the fungal infection.If the itching does not settle please consult a Skin specialist for examination and treatment.

Hi.. Do you have dandruff or mite problems too. If so good shampoo with regular oiling can reduce the itching.. Occasionally few of the fungal infections may need aggressive management with antifungal preparations.. Get an opinion from a dermatologist for proper management..
