In brief: See a dermatologist
It does not sound like typical dandruff to me.
It may more likely be eczema or psoriasis.

I would suggest a dermatologic evaluation.

In brief: Flaky Dandruff Skin
It sounds asi f you have a condition called seborrheic dermatitis.
Not uncommon, but annoying. Shampooing often, preferably daily, with one of the over-the-counter tar shampoos, such as t-gel, tarsum, dhs-tar, should help your scalp. Over-the-counter Hydrocortisone creams, used very spearingly twice daily for a week or two should help the ears and the face. If no better see a dermatologist.
