Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of Tinea barbae a fungal infection.
I treat such patients with clotrimazole local application and Fluconazole tablet for a month.
This gives excellent response .
You can try this in consultation of your doctor.
For greying of of moustache hair you can take Pabatab tablet for three month. This is over the counter I guess. But the other drugs mentioned above are obtained only with a prescription of a doctor.
I have seen good response with that.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Seborrheic dermatitis is caused by fungal infection.
Sebaceous glands in hairy area become hyper active and secrete more.
These secretions get infected leading to Seborrheic dermatitis.
Treatment remains the same.
Just go ahead with my advice you will get relief.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
