Why is there a red, itchy patch on my face?Skin, Hair & Nails
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.
