If it isn't itchy and is localised to one place then it is probably a small patch of eczema or seborrhoeic dermatitis. It doesn't need to be treated as such if it isn;t bothering you a lot. However if it is itchy and you want to get rid of it, I would suggest using T-Gel (Ketoconazole) shampoo and leave it on for 15 mins and wash it off. Do that 3-4 times a week for 3 weeks and that should help clear it up. If that doesn't help, you could get betamethasone scalp application ad use that once a day on the area for 2-3 weeks. Hope that helps
