  • Ive got the same thing. Came on a couple of years ago. Its like regular dandruff the doc said but moves down onto your forehead. I talked with my Doc and he said its a fungal infection that comes from the scalp. He sent me to a skin specialist who gave me a sample cream that never worked. Sometimes it really flares up and I get little rash blisters/pimples. Couple of things seem to help. The rash seems to get worse when the air is dry and Im dehydrated so Hydration - drinking lots of water helps- as well as a cool air humidifier in the house. Good sweaty excerise seems to help as well. The blood flow from the excerise seems to help. I am using full strength Tea Tree oil right now as no creams seems to work even the cortizone creams the docs give. I am told that Tea Tree oil will make it worse at first then it starts to clears up. Im on day 3 and the rash is very irritated and flaky. I put it on in the morning and by end of day the skin is dry and flaky. Ill do this for another week or so to see if there any results. Ill let you know.
