i suffer from mild rosacea mainly flushing etc. Recently over my forehead side burn and beard areas( no beard though as i am female) i became first itchy then dry, the patches also seemed inflamed and quite scaly...iv seen eczema before and it doesnt seem like that its way too itchy and the patches are agrevated and burn up to easily, the redness is quite defined on the hairline and sideburn area.
anyway my question is..can you have seb derm without having oily skin. my skin isnt oily in the slightest and never has been. iv recently been having IPL which iv had in the past with no reaction like this plus it wasnt done on my forehead which is where the seb derm started.
everything iv looked at for seb derm mentions oily skin and how to treat it, i dont have oily skin and i was just wondering can anyone give me advice on how to treat this
P.s i didnt self diagnose i was informed by my Dr it was seb derm and currently using hyrdocortisone cream.
any help appreciated
