You seem to be facing a lot of problems at the same time. When the problems are multiple then the treatments might vary... or you might even need multiple treatments etc. Which is why a good examination of your skin is needed. So I sincerely suggest that you visit a dermatologist. Andthe doctor will help you not only with your treatment but also guide you on how to control your condition.

Hi. Scalp flaking could be due to a few reasons (e.g. one cause could be psoriasis).With proper history a dermatologist near u can guide u after the pertinent history is given. Redness in left armpit can again b due to various reasons (e.g. erythrasma being one such cause) which needs to be gauged properly. Regards, Dr. Zubin Mandlewala MUMBAI
