I have chronic nasal allergies for years along with hives.

I started getting these pimples that form a hard crust, they are on on my forehead, eyebrows and along my hairline. I get what feels like a large sore pimple on my head within a day it feels like a rusty area.

I went to my husband Dr. with him and asked him what it ws, he said either an allergic reaction or seborrhea, I have this for over 2 months. I have not changed soap, shampoo and use very little hair spray.I think if it were an allergic reaction it would be gone by now.

I searched the net and it says seborrhea is red itchy spots, mine is itchy but not red. The Dr. gave me a script for topicort but it made my face burn like fire. I am using hydrocortisone cream, 2 x's a day and t-get shampoo.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Linda

From what I understand there are 2 different Seborrhea's...dermatitis and keratosis. The dermatitis is simply dandruff and keratosis is brown in nature and often forms a greasy crust. You say its not red, what color are they?

Thanks for the quick reponse.

The bumps, lumps or whatever are flesh colored. Some seem to have a pin hole in the center, maybe from scratching.I had spots on my head before and behind my ear and forhead but they cleared up by themselves.
I have no oozing or anything with this, just the crusty feeling and itching.

Ok I think I know what you're talking about but I agree that the docs diagnoses doesn't quite fit. I honestly don't know what it is but I have something similiar near my eyes and on my legs. They itch on occasion but for the most part are pretty benign. Do you suppose that the crust you are feeling is from you scratching them?
