Red itchy patches on face. need help..

2 years diagnosed with Crohn's experiencing flaky hot painful skin disorder

The hot spots regenerate skin quickly but never heal and is extremely itchy. My scalp used to be very flaky and red as well but has gotten better.. We thought it was a Zinc deficiency but taking Zinc supplements did not help. At the moment I am using Jojoba oil topically to alleviate the itchiness.

Does anyone have these same symptoms that have any advice or a cure of sorts?

Please tell your primary care doc about this and consider seeing a dermatologist asap for a full evaluation. You want to be able to get an accurate diagnosis.
