I use shea moisture deep cleaning shampoo, kinky curly knot today as a leave in, and castor oil. that's it...yeah it's my scalp
Everything you're using sounds ok.

You might have an allergic reaction but then your whole scalp would be sore.

This used to happened to me too but then I just realized that I was doing my flat twists too tight. It could be the hair style. Don't manipulate that area too much and hopefully the pain will go away.

Airdry...

However my scalp is extremely sore... I have been massaging and scratching... no flakes whatsoever... I probably irritated my scalp when I scratched but I scratched 'cause the itch was driving me batty . I used to have this often when I was relaxed... this is the first time I recall having this problem with natural hair.

Any feedback is appreciated. Have a Curly Good day.
I have recently been suffering from a sore scalp. Especially at the crown. I deduced that it was for two reasons: 1) I had an itchy scalp due in part to an allergic reaction to a new conditioner I was using and also because my scalp was dry and I would constantly scratch it. 2) I wash my hair in the shower and the angle of the shower is such that the water would fall directly on my crown. Also, the water I used was too warm. I have since stopped using the conditioner and switched to lukewarm/cool water to shampoo my hair. To alleviate itchy scalp, I have been massaging my scalp with jojoba oil that contains rosemary and lavender essential oils. The exact recipe I used is: 1oz of jojoba oil, 15 drops each of rosemary and lavender essential oils. I am also increasing my water intake. So far it seems to be working.
