Hi Amy,
This could be due to any scalp dermatitis or due to lice infestation. If its due to lice you need to apply 1% permethrin over your scalp and if its a dermatitis you need an antibiotic steroid cream. Oral antihistamine can be taken to reduce the itch. Kindly consult a dermatologist so that accurate diagnosis based treatment can be started. Take care.
