itchy-headed painted turtle

My painted turtle won't stop itching his head. We thought it was a common eye infection and gave him the eyedrop treatment but he consistently itches the top of his head, and quite often. I could use a solution. Any takers?

Your tortoise should see a vet. If he keeps scratching his head, he could cause an infection if he doesn't have one already.
