Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello Rani,
Welcome to healthcare Magic
You have Seborrhoeic dermatitis. Squamous blepharitis is what you have on your eye lashes and eyebrows, which is again a manifestation of seborrhoeic dermatitis. Use an anti dandruff shampoo with ketoconazole 2% and ZPTO 1% three days a week for scalp. A baby shampoo can be used to clean the eye lashes and eyebrows. An antifungal cream like ketoconazole 2% twice a day will help to decrease your skin rash as well. If it is still not coming under control, please see a dermatologist.It is better to avoid applying oil on your hair as the fungus which cause this rash feed on oil.
Hope this helped
Take care
