Detailed Answer:
Hello. thank you

I am Dr. kakkar (Dermatologist and Venerelogist). I have noted your concern.

You seem to have seborrheic dermatitis - presents as flakiness, itching and redness.

Seborrheic dermatitis is a steroid responsive dermatosis. I suggest use a mild topical steroid cream e.g cortisone cream, twice daily for a few days. Cortisone cream is available over the counter
