So probably 6 months ago, the scalp just above my ears started feeling itchy and I noticed it as a bit dry. I didn't think much of it and figured I would just keep an eye on it and it should improve. Well, 6 months has gone by and it has gotten much worse. It has now spread up in an odd way.. it sort of rides my hairline. I have long hair and it is precious to me, so I'm sort of freaking out that this could cause hair loss and I don't know what to do. The rash is itchy, red, and has tons of flakes. Almost like super excessive dandruff. It is the same exact spot on both sides of my head above my ear going up.. but that's it. It has spread but it's also pretty isolated. The top and back of my head are untouched.
I am worried that it will spread worse. I think it is seborrheic dermatitis. My question is, could my glasses have caused it? It's rather strange to me that it started exactly where the glasses touch my ears on both sides of my head. My glasses are acetate, and I don't think that's usually a material people are allergic to.
I already use an anti-dandruff shampoo with pyrithione zinc. I also am a big believer in essential oils and have been applying frankincense and myrrh twice a day (which has helped a little but hasn't done much). I am going to try and start applying coconut oil and see if that helps.
Do you guys have any other ideas? I am just really concerned that it will spread and start to cause hair loss, not to mention that it's really ugly and itchy.
