Itchy scalp: It may be a little bit of a yeast/fungal infection. That can happen on the scalp, or anywhere on the body. Try an anti-fungal cream twice a day for 2 weeks (something with clotrimazole or miconazole, for example). Avoid steroid creams as they can thin the skin and affect the color over time. If the anti fungal cream doesn't help, go see a doctor.
