Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your case history of seborrheic dermatitis, my treatment advice is - 1. Don't scratch the lesion as it may worsen the condition.
2. Apply an antifungal cream like Clotrimazole cream on it.
3. Take an antihistamine medication like Levocetirizine.
4. Don't use the products mentioned by you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
