Sorry to hear your little one is having troubles.
I think you could search the site and find several good threads on this kind of thing. Here's one with almost identical concerns: 3b/3c with EXTREMELY dry SUPER itchy scalp
Some things you could try, in addition to checking with your doc:
-- rub less when washing
-- sometimes wash with CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser instead of shampoo
-- putting some cortisone on itchy spots
-- immediately after bathing, put some safflower or sunflower oil on the scalp
