Why is there a red, itchy patch on my face?

Skin, Hair & Nails
Hello Doctors! I've recently discovered a small (about 0.5cm in diameter) red patch of dry and somewhat itchy skin in between my eyebrows. This patch appeared around 2 days ago, and it stings when I apply moisturiser on it. Other than that, it does not really bother me when I'm going about my day. Is there anything I should be worried about or take note of? Thank you!
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Thank you for the question. The red and scaly patch between your eyebrows maybe do to a condition called seborrheic eczema which commonly affects this area. This condition may also cause dandruff.

You can consider applying some moisturizes to the area or even a very low potency topical steroid like hydrocortisone to the area to see if this rash clears up.

If it is still persistent, I do suggest you visit the doctor or dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and for further management.

After an initial consultation and assessment, the cause of your skin redness can be assessed. 

There are many possible causes for skin redness which may include allergies, dermatitis, skin reaction to topicals or treatments, infections etc. 

A visual assessment will help us come to the correct diagnosis and leads to the most optimal treatment plan.
