Seborrheic dermatitis is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity.
You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium. For face, topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thanks for your response. I have consulted with a doctor about this. The doctor that diagnosed me is a medical doctor for the US Military. He diagnosed me with this when I was denied entry and another doctor didnt believe the other that diagnosed me orginally. After I found out I had this I googled alot and I am glad I found this website. As previously stated, I want to rid of this forever and it seems like the shampooing daily does not work when I have hair ontop of my head...so what I had started to do was cut my hair down to a "bald fade", shampoo three times a week and after the shampoo, topically apply Olive Oil or Tea Tree Oil to my scalp and face. My face has been clear since last week and a half after a week of that but I know that it will surface again.
Now you suggested mild steroids and antifungals - what particular items are best? I am willing to spend the money if its a sure tail thing that it will work. I know that everybody's skin reacts differently but I want what has been tested and used over and over and has shown progress for almost anybody.
