When he gets upset he starts scratching his head. He does it when he's in teething pain, and he does it during temper tantrums. We stop the temper tantrums right away, and try to get his hands away from his head, but by then he has already scratched his head enough. He has really bad cradle cap, we got medicated stuff for it. His dad (my boyfriend) had the same thing, but only difference is, when my son scratches his head he gets red cuts from his nails. We trim his nails but we've noticed he will just attack his head regardless... =/
I don't think anything is wrong with lice or anything like that because his pediatrician saw him last week and looked at his scalp so we could get some medication for the cradle cap.
