    Unhappy Large oozing scab/scales on T Zone?

    Ok, so I have a rather unpleasant question, I guess.
    As I mentioned in my newbie post, I have super. SUPER. SUPER sensitive skin, which also has the tendency (especially now that it's winter..) to not only peel, but get larger zits IN the flaking skin.
    Now, whenever it does this, it gets large patches of scaly, oozing, scabby skin (I don't think it's Psoriasis..), mostly on my T-zone... The place I have it the most is always on the sides of my nose, though...
    I have literally no idea what it could be, and I can't get in with my dermatologist until the end of february

    I've uploaded some pictures.. Gross, right? :/

    Thanks!

    Hi fren! Sorry to know about your condition. Wanna ask you few questions. Are the lesions itchy? From the picture and your short history it seems like seborrheic dermatitis to me. this is thought to be caused by yeast infection which is sebum loving so mostly concentrated in seborrheic areas i.e your T-zone.

    For treatment you can wash your face daily once or twice a day with non soap cleanser than apply ketoconazole cream or ciclopirox cream once daily for 2-4 weeks. For inflammed areas you can use mild hydrocortisone cream once or twice a day for one to two weeks. So I would personally suggest you to visit dermatologist, perform simple tests to confirm the diagnosis and carry out the treatment.

    Thank you! I didn't think to mention as I didn't think it was relevant at the time, but I am prone to yeast/other fungal infections.. To answer your question, yes. The lesions are itchy..

    Are there any non soap cleaners you could reccomend for super sensitive skin?

    Yes your condition. Looks like seborrheic dermatitis with secondary bacterial infection. You may use topical antibiotics in addition to antifungal that saiyan mentioned... use mild soap free cleansers.. Well I'm not sure about the brands that are available in ur country, but search for brands like cetaphil etc.. U may check drugstore.com for more soap free cleansers..

    Hi, did you receive any relief from this? I have the same issue for many years, actually 'decades' now. I get it mostly in forehead and around center of my nose. I would love to hear if you made a dent in it.

    Hi CSB and Dookie! Have you guys tried to consult an expert about this skin condition? It is a possible that this is a skin condition, most likely an ACD or Allergic Contact Dermatitis. This occurs when you have a direct contact with an allergen. There are medical creams or steroid creams that lessen the discomfort however it might trigger the skin condition especially if you overused it. There are natural ways that can help you with this that proven and safe. You can check this that I found naturaltherapies.com they might help you.
