Resolved Question:

I have had soreness and redness around my nose,eyebrows and upper lip area. It is mostly around my nose and can be very irritating and flaky skin. The redness sometimes has a burning sensation to it.
I have had this problem for about 5 years. I also used to have a really flaky scalp.I have used selsun to treat that. But my nose and face is still very sensitive and most of the time red and dry.
