Thanks for writing in.

You may be suffering from Seborrheic dermatitis.

I think taking low dose isotretinoin (10 mg daily after meal) will help you.
for dandruff use ciclopirox shampoo twice a week.

as for not healing fast, it may just be your perception and not actually something wrong. nevertheless, it is prudent to get yourself tested..hemogram, lft, kft, blood sugar, vit B12, vit K.
