Alsoy body is very itchy, I have little pimple like sores all over my entire body and neck? I have treated my self with a scabies treatment on body and head lice treatment on my head but it hasn't done anything.. I don't know what's wrong with me I've started taking anti biopics but it's not doing much? What could it be?

Dermatologist 's  Response
According to your history, looks like you have seborrheic eczema.. ie dandruff over scalp associated with seborrheic lesiong over face and body
Seborrhoeic dermatitis (also known as "seborrheic eczema" )is an inflammatory skin disorderaffecting the scalp, face, and torso. Typically, seborrheic dermatitis presents with scaly, flaky, itchy, and red skin. It particularly affects the sebaceous-gland-rich areas of skin. In adolescents and adults, seborrhoeic dermatitis usually presents as scalp scaling similar to dandruff or as mild to marked erythema of the nasolabial fold.
Dermatologists recommend topical treatments such as shampoos, cleansers or creams/lotions that contain antifungal, anti-inflammatory, sebo-suppressive or keratolytic ingredients:One combination approach combines a dandruff shampoo, antifungal agent and topical steroid .
For the itching, you should take some antihistamines like levocetrizine...

Hope it helps
