Itchy scalp: The most common cause of scalp itching is a condition called seborrheic dermatitis. It is similar to dandruff. Over the counter shampoos containing zinc or tar or ketoconazole can be very helpful. There are prescription lotions that help when they are rubbed into the scalp. It is important you be sure that you do not have head lice.
