In brief: Dermatitis.

THis could be dermatitis or sensitive scalp too.
Since you have trued Nix, (permethrin) lice would be unlikely but should be assessed. Any recent shampoo change may contribute. Dandruff/ seborrhea can cause itching. Should be seen if persists.

You have Seborrheic Dermatitis. Try T-gel shampoo and if that does not work you will need a prescription shampoo and topical prescription cortisone.
