Dry, scaly patches can develop on the face, scalp or ears.
The dryness on the face tends to affect the eyebrows, creases by the nose, margins of the forehead, beard, moustache or chin areas. These dry areas frequently have light areas of skin color present as well.
Itching and flaking of the scalp is very common too.
A person can have involvement of the face only, scalp only, or ears, but many times all areas are active together.
The lighter skin can improve with treatment using anti-inflammatory creams or lotions.
