Within normal: There is a condition called geographic tongue and from your description that is what you have. It is a benign condition. At times, some foods (spicy or acidic foods) can aggravate this and cause a burning sensation . In that case just avoid those foods. You should consult your dentist upon your next visit and make sure that is all you have.

Referred pain: When you say irritates my scalp, is it a headache? Like "brainfreeze" effect after drinking a very cold drinks fast? At times pain in the roof of the mouth (palatal region) refers pain to the head region. Also, there are cases of mixed innervations. A neurologist can help you in that case. Try avoiding spicy food for now.

Clinical exam needed: You are in pain, therefore you need immediate care. Teeth infection can cause earache and could cause swellings that look like bruising. Anbesol is a topical anesthetic that will not work for toothache. It helps with gum soreness. Please see your dentist as soon as possible. Teeth infections are not only very painful but could affect your general health.
