In brief: Visit a skin doctor
A dermatologist should be able to figure out why a person's scalp is scaling and painful.
Possible causes include a bacterial infection, a fungal infection, a poorly healing wound from excessive scratching, psoriasis, etc... The dermatologist may take samples for a culture, to see what germs are there. Sometimes, dermatologists will do a biopsy to see if there is an underlying skin disorder.
