I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

This sounds like seborrheic dermatitis
I would try ketoconzazole skin cream and shampoo 2% strength
This medicine will help clear up the rash

Good morning, Thank you for your reply. Can I obtain the medication you have recommended over the counter?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
No you cannot.
Over the counter you can try selenium sulfide shampoo and put it on the trouble spots. If that doesn't work, get the ketoconazole from your GP
