I have flaky bumps...

I have flaky bumps above my eyebrows. It doesn’t exactly itch but it’s very flaky, dry and bumpy. Not sure if it’s a type of acne or dermatitis or dandruff or what. Knowing what it is would help me to treat it.

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Bumps, kind of like rash but only itches when I rub the white flaky stuff off

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

A few months. Sweat and sometimes stress

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Overweight, anxiety, high cholesterol, IBS, menopausal.

Almost 48. About 3 months. Haven’t really done anything but try to wash it but my skin has become dryer as I’ve aged.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
It does not look like acne bumps.
There can be dermatitis.
Steroid cream can help.
You can try over the counter hydrocortisone cream.
You can apply warm, moist compress.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
