Oily skin, spots on face, turning white on sun exposure, peeling, brown dead skin. Treatment?

Hello, I m 29 years old, female, oily skin. I have spots in my face that are constantly peeling, so when i get sunburned they remain white. They don t itch but they peel so often that it looks like it s snowing in my face. It got a bit better with the use of acidmantle, the snowing stops but at the end of the day my face has a brown cover of dead skin.

Welcome to healthcare magic
From your description it could be seborrhoeic dermatitis. It is a rash seen in oily skin type caused by an yeast. A salicylic acid 2% face wash will help in decreasing oiliness when used 1-2 times a day. An anti fungal cream like miconazole 2% twice a day over the scaly rash will work in decreasing the rash.
Hope this helped
Take care
