Why does my daughter keep scratching the back of her head?

My 2 year old daughter keeps scratching the back of her head where her hairline begins.

I know it sounds trivial but she's doing it all the time and I'm a little concerned ... Is this a big enough thing to take her to the Dr's or do you think is it just a habit?

She's already had chicken pox and I've had a look at the back of her head and she has little red "heat spots" but I don't know if this is from her scratching her head in the first place?

Obviously if it continues I will take her to the Dr's but I'm just looking if anyone else has experienced this with their children or if they have any advice.

Thanks :)
