What does a spider bite looks like on scalp?

Depends

Open-uri20121003-19928-1knhmfg
on the type of spider, and ther are only 4 Genera of spiders in the US that are dangerous to humans but generally, there may be 1 or 2 small puncture wounds in the center of a red, warm, swollen, initially painful (sometimes) but then sometimes itchy area. There may occasionally be some numbness in the area also. However, black widow bites and brown recluse and hobos can be quite different.

Swelling in the scalp maybe a spider bite?

Spider bite lesions

have extremely variable presentations. There isn't a way to tell you if the swelling is related to a spider bite. Dermatological evaluation may help to determine the cause for your symptoms.

What could cause an extremely itchy scalp with no flaking, no redness, and no bites?

Could be...

Scalp_hair
...seborrheic dermatitis (which doesn't always cause flaking), or an allergy to a shampoo or conditioner. Or (I know this sounds gross) you could have head lice. Look for the eggs (called "nits"), which appear as tiny white dots attached to individual hair shafts. You may have to see a dermatologist, since it's pretty hard to examine your own scalp thoroughly.

Like insect bites

The bites appear like small insect bites, if you scratch the area, then the region would be red, hot and tender to the touch, if infected.

Itchy skin

There are many causes of total body pruritus - including medications, systemic illness- thyroid, renal or liver diseases. Lymphoproliferative diseases are an infrequent but serious cause of itching. Suggest you see your doctor for a workup.
