Perhaps : Perhaps you have seborrheic dermatitis? This is a common condition this time of year and if typically found on the scalp or face. On the face, it is seen as red, scaly areas on the forehead, between the eyebrows (or on the middle part of the eyebrows), and beside the nose. Typical treatment would be Ketoconazole Cream and/or desonide cream which can prescribed by a dermatologist. Otc options might include Cortaid (hydrocortisone) which can help some patients. I hope this helps!

Redness across cheek: This likely represents rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition. Many moistures contain ingredients that cause irritation. You should visit your doctor and or a dermatologist the can prescibe topical agents like Metrogel or oral antibiotics like Doxycycline when this condition flares.
