Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having seborrheic dermatitis.

There may be flakes or mild greasy scales on scalp,paranasal areas of face,eye brows,ears,axillae,chest and groin areas..all seborrheic areas.

There is exact no cause. There may be diathesis to develop SD.

Stress,anxiety,sleeplessness,weather,sunrays..etc may precipitate the disease.

Yeast like pityriasis ovale may be responsible.

Avoid worries.

Take anti fungal like ketoconazole tab.

Apply mild steroid with clotrimazole cream.

Do shampoo with ketoconazole containing shampoo.

If needed,take short course of steroids.

You maybe benefitted .

I hope you got my answer.
