In brief: Not serious

Could be allergies or mild dermatitis (skin inflammation).
Try an over the counter cortisone cream.

....or once daily you can try applying dandruff shampoo to the affected areas of your face. rinse with cool water.

In brief: Sounds like seborrhe

which is usually a combination of inflammation, cell turnover problems and fungal components.
You need topical prescriptions from dermatologist, you can try OTC hydrocortisone until appointment.
