Factors such as dry scalp, poor hygiene, and excess of chemical hair care products, scalp sunburn and stress add to this problem. Scalp irritation, redness, pain and itching are the key symptoms of an itchy Scalp. The condition may also be noticed by the presence of pus filled bumps on the scalp and area behind the ears.
