Seborrhoic dermatit?: The scabs are probably as a result of your vigorous scratching. Chances are, you are itching secondarily to seborrhoic dermatitis. Try using a shampoo that works in fungal infection like one percent Nizoral (ketoconazole) which is available over the counter.

Could be: Infection, especially a fungus. You need to go to the doctor and have your scalp checked for proper treatment so you can get better.
