In brief: Seborrhea/Psoriasis?

It could be either of these or a combination sometimes called "sebopsoriasis".
If you haven't tried it yet, it might be worth trying Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo, now available over the counter (otc). This is an anti-fungal shampoo that can sometimes even cure seborrhea if used for at least a month. If this doesn't work, you may have a chronic condition in which case you should see your family doctor.
