problem one: my one month and two week old daughter has these little red bumps that started out on her face. i thought they were just the usual tiny bumps babies usually get but then they got worse and her face turned even more red then some of them started turning into what it felt like was little scabs. her face started to look really dry and her skin would just flake off. i called the doctor and asked about it and she said it might be something that about 30% of babies get and that it should go away in a few MONTHS. i was scared. i'm a first time mother and i'm only 17, about the be 18, years old. So then the following week a nurse came to give her a home visit. she said it looked like her skin was just irritated from her bath soap or lotion so she told me to stop putting anything on her face. after about a week or so her face started to get better and was even feeling smooth again but then i noticed the bumps on her neck, in her hair and it's started to spread down her back. has anyone ever had this problem and if so, any words of advice?
problem two: my daughter has these flakes in her hair. it looks like dandruff and it started out as just a tiny bit but now is a lot. it's only on the top of her head though. i tried to just brush it out but some of it is like really stuck on there good and even when it does come up of her scalp it sticks to her hair. i was thinking maybe it was cradle cap? if so, how do i make it go away?
thank you for taking the time to read this and if you can answer any of my questions please do (:
