it looks like you could be having some oily skin causing some suborrheic dermatitis on your forehead skin.

you can try some over the counter head and shoulders shampoo on the area or selsium blue shampoo on the area to see if that helps.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
