In brief: See dermatologist

Because of involvement of the face as well as the scalp, I would urge seeing a dermatologist.

A prescription from your dermatologist is likely required, but using over the counter DHS zinc shampoo for your scalp until then may offer you some relief.

There are many great topicals available. I use Tazarotene to bring down the thick scales, and add Taclonex scalp with vitamin D to bring down the inflammation. But there are many combinations available
