Eczema: It's possible that you have eczema affecting your brows and corners of your eyelids. This condition can also affect other parts of your body, like behind your ears, elbows, behind your knees, etc. Avoid your eyelids, but you may trial hydrocortisone 2.5% cream to the brows 2-3 times per day to see if you respond well enough. The eyelids require prescription grade ophthalmic ointment.
Seborrhea: Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory rash along the scalp, secondary to a yeast. The rash can have a spectrum from mild dandruff, to severe red itchy plaques. Treatments can consist of over the counter shampoos that contain zinc pyrithione or selenium sulfide. There are prescription shampoos that can treat the yeast or the inflammation.
Head and shoulders: Try using an over-the-counter dandruff shampoo for your hair and eyebrows (not in your eyes, though!). Usually this is related to seborrheic dermatitis, and people get flaking hair, eyebrows and sometimes flaking in the folds on either side of their mouths (nasolabial folds).See 1 more doctor answer

Penile dermatitis: There are too many possibilities to make an educated guess. Most genital rashes are not STDs, and this doesn't sound like one. Best to see a doctor sooner rather than later. Start with your personal physician, or perhaps a dermatologist. Good luck.
Red eyelid on corner of eye and very dry flaky skin on corner of eye. Treated with methylprednisotone aceponate but temporary effect, what to do?
Angular blepharitis.: There is a distinct entity that affects the corners of the eye called angular blepharitis. It can be allergic/atopic in nature, but commonly can also be associated with bacterial infection and would require treatment with antibiotics. If steroids like Methylprednisolone aceponate have not helped, you should be re-evaluated by an eye md (ophthalmologist) for the necessity of antibiotic treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

May be seborrhea: Especially if it's also a bit greasy. Keep an eye on it. If it's also in your nasolabial folds or you have a lot of dandruff, this is quite likely. If it gets worse or a well-circumscribed area appears, get it seen

Seborrhea: Seborrhea (seb-uh-ree-uh) is a common skin condition (red, itchy rash & white scales). It is called dandruff when is affects the scalp, but it can also be on other parts of the face & body (folds around nose, behind the ears, the forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, chest, around (the navel). Medicated shampoos used 2-3x/wk on these area as directed can help reduce the scaling. See your dermatologist.

Flaky skin gone: Hyrate your body with fluids and hydrate your skin with proper moisturization. The best time to use a moisturizer is after a shower or bath. Avoid mosturizers with fragrances. If the skin is excessively dry use a moisturizer with AHA's such as Lachyrin 5 or Amlaction
FLAKY SKIN OF BROW: If this problem has been there for a long time, it may be a condition called psoriasis. Please see your dermatologist who will prescribe appropriate medications. Meanwhile try using a tar shampoo: t-gel, tarsum, dhs-tar or other shampoos with tar. And shampoo often, daily if possible.
