Seborrhoeic dermatitis

I suffer from seborrhoeic dermatitis which is usually on my scalp, eyebrows &  behind my ears. Mylocort clears it up after a couple of days. But I' ve had this flare up for nearly a month, mainly on my scalp. Its been flaking terribly &  my hair has been falling out alot-which is a new symptom. I' ve been using tar based shampoos but they seem to have an adverse effect, making my scalp red &  itchy.
Please help?

Hi Nicky
If your hair is falling out something else is wrong - could be a secondary fungal infection. Please see a dermatologist as soon as possible.
