Hi. Greetings. this could be eczematisation of scalp folliculitis or scalp psoriasis. Will need a more detailed history and examination. Use an antifungal shampoo and betadine shampoo alternatingly. It's better you visit a dermatologist near you for a confirmed diagnosis. You may also require a course of oral antibiotics. Hope this helps. Warm regards - Dr Govind S Mittal
