Spots like you describe can be seborrheic dermatitis (an inflamed form of dandruff), an allergic contact dermatitis, particularly if you applied something new to the hair or scalp or an infection like ringworm or even bacterial infection, although bacterial infection is usually centered around the hair follicle and looks more like a painful bump than a coin-sized patch.
