Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.
There can be a few causes for the itching.
Sweating or dryness can cause it.
There can be dermatitis.
Allergic reaction can occur.
There can be a fungal infection, psoriasis.
Head lice needs to be excluded too.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
You can try over the counter antifungal cream like lamisil.
Zyrtec or claritin can help to reduce itching.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
