Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I will be glad to be of assistance.

I can understand your concern.

You can use ciclopirox oleamine shampoo once every alternate day for two weeks.This helps in the treatment of dandruff.

Hope my recommendation is useful to you.Please let me know if I can address any other concern for you.Regards.Replied by Dr. Kruti , 10 hours ago

I have a red rash on my face under my nose and on my chin. It seems to be the worst after I shave. After a few days, the skin flakes off . It was diagnosed as Chronic spongiotic dermatitis. Everything I read says that that does not occur on the face. What do I do now?

I have had a small red patch on my neck for around 4 weeks now but in the last week it has started to spread, the colour is less prominent but the area is growing quite large. I also have seb derm on my face especially the brow region and wondered whether it could be related to this. I am currently at university and the earliest doctors appointment is a date when I have returned home for the summer, are there any over the counter items I could buy to help with this? All the best, Sean Walsh.

For years, I've had chronic thick white ear flaking in my left outer ear (much less in my right). I clean it and within 24 hrs or less, more flakes have returned. Have tried an anti-dandruff shampoo in my ears -- This doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
