In brief: Flaky brown skin

May be eczema ( especially since you have seborrheic dermatitis) or fungal.
Consider miosturizing with coconut oil , or may need prescription treatment with lotrisone antifungal/ steroid.. Short term should not have effects but if scarring may have effects f/u/ w/ doc

In brief: Present treatment?

What are you now using?? You might have post-inflammatory pigmentation.
Best see a dermatologist. Fungus very unlikely. Hair growth may be affected by frequent rubbing or by inflammation. Lotrisone contains beta methasone, a potent steroid which should not be used on the face. Your question is too vague for specific discussion.
