What does itching on the skull indicate?

i am so itchy from the base of my skull down to my mid back. years ago i had the same thing and was told it was some type of fungus and was given horrible red stuff with which I had to wash my hair. Terrible experience the red stuff and I m wondering if there s something else available to get rid of the itching and bumps.
