Rash on dd's head

Recommended Posts

Could it be seborrheic dermatitis? Or Eczema?

With seborrheic dermatitis, the affected skin can look greasy, scaly, red or flaky. The disorder also causes whitish or yellow scales to flake from the scalp. University of Maryland Medical Center says you may also experience hair loss, and skin may be itchy and sore. Symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis often improve in summer, especially after spending time outdoors.

Soap resin. Dd here gets that also when she doesn't rinse enough, I've also seen this with laundry soap reaction.


Is her hair able to go up? If so, ponytail it and wash/rinse it with cool water, maybe put some neosporin on the area to keep the bacteria down and moisture up while it heals from underneath.


Did you recently change brushes/combs or anything like that?


Could just be dry skin irritation with changes in the weather also.


Until it clears, I would not use anything at all on the area for soaps/shampoos. Just water.
