Seborrheic Dermatiti

Ear
Seborrheic dermatitis is thought to be due to a combination of an over production of skin oil and irritation from a yeast called malassezia. Seborrheic dermatitis appears to run in families. Stress, fatigue, weather extremes, oily skin, infrequent shampoos or skin cleaning, use of lotions that contain alcohol, skin disorders (such as acne), or obesity may increase the risk, neurologic conditions.

Should have your Dr / Urgent Care Dr examine, as might be fungal infection (like w/athlete's foot) and need antifungal. Cannot say for sure over Internet, as could also be overly dry skin or eczematous response, or potentially an std.

Dry and scaly eyelids from dermatitis, look terrible, need help!?

Treatment available!

smile5, You may be suffering from eczema which is a common skin disorder that produces a dry, scaly rash and usually causes itching. Season changes can be a triggering cause. You can try using an over the counter product such as a hydrocortisone cream and see if that helps. You can also check with the pharmacist for any recommendations. If no improvement, you may need to see a dermatologist.

The common causes of malodorous, dry, scaling feet is fungal infection, which may be aggravated by poorly ventilated foot wear. Your body's natural level of sweating is also a factor. Finally, your skin may be sensitive to certain materials in foot wear, like leather, tanning chemicals, or latex.
