Possible food allerg: Could be a food sensitvity and/or deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids (usually supplemented by taking fish oils). Try eliminating foods such as grains and dairy for a couple of weeks. These are the most common culprits.

Look for a shampoo..: ...With either tar, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, or selenium sulfide (or a combination of them). If none of those are strong enough you'll have to visit a dermatologist to get a prescription-strength shampoo, plus perhaps a steroid foam or lotion.

Although it can be very persistent, treatment with regular use of antifungal agents and intermittent use of topical steroids can keep it under control.
