Thanks for writing in.

Most probably, you are suffering from seborrheic dermatitis.

I would like to know some information:-

* Is there plaque accumulation?
* Do you have Greasy, oily areas of skin?
* Do you have skin scales -- white and flaking, or yellowish, oily, and adherent -- "dandruff"?
* Itching -- may become more itchy if infected
* Mild redness
* Hair loss

Also, is it possible to upload a picture of the same? You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.

Waiting for your reply.
