Possible, see doctor: Without seeing the flaky area, i can guess that it is yeast, but it would be best to have a thorough examination in person by a doctor. Usually a simple pill can clear up most yeast infections.

This is: This is probably psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. Please see a dermatologist for treatment.
