Red skin in face (itchy) and flaky scalp, probably seborreic dermatitis

The skin on the sides of my nose and under my eyes gets red periodically. Milder redness also occurs around my ears and on my forehead. Almost constantly my scalp is flaky. I have had this for about 7 years.

My skin gets a bit itchy when red and sometimes very itchy when I get hot. If I donít scratch my skin, patches of slightly yellow skin will cover the redness. If I rub this off right after it has appeared, my skin can get extremely irritated. If I wait a few days to remove it carefully, the skin underneath can be almost like normal. Then the redness will reoccur in a few days.

The redness and irritation can be dampened with hydrocortisone, but it looses its effect quickly. It is only truly effective if I havenít used it in a long time. I will use this whenever there is a situation when I want my skin to look normal. It feels like my skin works against its effect, making it feel like its total effect makes me worse rather than better.

The skin in my face is very sensitive to most cleaning products. After testing I have found out witch shampoos/hair gels/soaps wonít irritate my skin.

I have seen a couple of doctors and they think I have seborreic dermatitis. After looking into it, it seems like that is right.

If anyone has something similar I would be very grateful if you could share experiences and suggest treatments/products to make it easier to live with this condition.
