Hi Welcome to healthcare magic

you need to be examined clinically.. with above lines we cant make a proper diagnosis.
Most common infection of scalp is Tinea capitis. it is fungal infection infection, but it will be present at may spots on the scalp and painful. treatment is shampoo with anti fungal(ketoconazole), daily head bath dry in the proper sunlight..
