Some thoughts: seborrheic dermatitis is itchy. flaky, greasy, and often located on the scalp. Other prominant areas might include the area behind the ears and between the eyes. Common treatments may include nizoral, (ketoconazole) coal tar, and short term topical steroids. I would recommend you speak with your' primary care physician or a dermatologist regarding this issue.
