General & Family Physician 's  Response
From history it seems that you might be having some chronic infection on scalp giving rise this problem.
There is possibility of having fungal infection, dermatitis or dandruff.
Consult dermatologist and get diagnosed.
After proper diagnosis go for treatment accordingly.
Meanwhile take antihistamine tablet like Cetrizine or Benadryl for itching.
In absence of itching healing will be faster.
Ok and take care.
