URNowOfficialCoconut: Go wash-out your scalp and hair gently with shampoo then tap dry it with a towel.Go get some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at the local drug store and take two capsules every six hours for a few days and see how it goes (it may make you drowsy)If not getting better, or getting worse, get a doctor to look at it ASAP. Check to see if there are any other ingredients in the coconut oil; that may be a clue to what's wrong.
