Why have I developed a sudden greasy patch on my scalp?

Sorry for the grossness, but about five or six months ago I first started to notice that when I blow dried my hair right after washing it, it was all fluffy/soft/clean/normal except for this patch at the back crown of my head. This patch extends around to the right hand side of my hair, about midway towards the end of my hairline. The other half of my hair is completely normal.
What could be causing this? It seemingly appeared of out nowhere, and I've never had the problem before. No matter how much I wash my hair, it won't go away (I usually wash my hair every three days or so, and always have, but I tried unsuccessfully when I found this to scrub it out by washing three times in a row).
I asked my dermatologist, and he told me to use T Gel, which I started doing several months ago. I usually don't notice it because my hair is curly and I air dry it, but I just blow dried my hair and realized that this greasy patch is back and seems to be worse.
It doesn't itch, and no one has noticed it, but when you touch it it just feels heavy, gross, and weighed down, like I have way too much product in it.
