I have a dry scaling scalp condition that is spreading slowly. I treated a similar condition on chin caused by combing my beard and scratching the skin. I used the Hydrocortisone 2.5% along with Clindamycin Lotion 1%. I discontinued the Hydrocortisone after 4 days.
This sounds like you have seborrheic dermatitis, and it can be a real nuisance for you. Use a good dandruff shampoo, even to wash your body where you have it. Hydrocortisone can be used, but the shampoo helps too.
