Seborrheic eczema occurs mainly on the head and neck area, especially around hair bearing areas. One sees several seborrheic eczema or seborrheic dermatitis, at the sides of the nose, the beard area, eyebrow area. And it can look quite red but it also can be very very flaky and can be very troublesome with regards to perhaps flaking over your clothing etc.

So it is very important that I took a history in regards to the rash and when it started and what treatment you used to date and then a very close, a very good examination of the skin will be very important. Thereafter I will be able to give you a very good treatment plan with regards to topical therapies for your seborrheic dermatitis.
