In brief: Severe dandruff

It's a form of dandruff that affects the scalp, face, and torso.
Usually red, scaly, itchy, and greasy. Usually caused by a susceptibility to a yeast called malassezia furfur which has a propensity for fatty acids which is why it prefers parts of the body that has more oil secretion.
