I have an itchy scalp and a swollen lymph node on the left side of my head at the lower skull line. Can you please tell me what might be the cause?

In brief: Dermititiis

You could have eczema, seborrhea, atopic or other form of dandruff.
If you scratch it it will tind to worsen and flake as well as get infected. That will cause the swollen lymph node. Start with a dandruff shampoo and stop scratching it. See if it starts to resolve in a couple of weeks
