The first thing that comes to my mind would be coconut oil. I have read that it is very good for dry scalp. You may want to do a google search about it.

I have also heard Coconut Oil is good. You may also try a medicated shampoo for Dandruff. I think there are varying strengths on the market. Some smell pretty bad but they work.

actually this happened to me when I started a new med. I even had horriable swelling of my legs & feet as well as a rash head to foot. It was awful .
I am not longer on those meds & thank god I don't have that issue anymore.

Other possibilities are head lice and psoriasis. You can easily get head lice from school children (usually small ones) and psoriasis is often associated with stress. So maybe a quick trip to your local pharmacy would help.
