Yes: Burning, red bumps on the scalp can have many causes. A common thing is a staphlococcal infection, which may require an antibiotic to treat it.

Seborrhea/Psoriasis?: It could be either of these or a combination sometimes called "sebopsoriasis". If you haven't tried it yet, it might be worth trying Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo, now available over the counter (otc). This is an anti-fungal shampoo that can sometimes even cure seborrhea if used for at least a month. If this doesn't work, you may have a chronic condition in which case you should see your family doctor.
