A little boy in my church had this. Poor thing just wanted to scratch all the time! His mom used Eucerin baby and eventually did take him to an MD for a prescription cream. I hope your little girl is better very quickly!

my daughter suffers from this as well. Her doctor should be able to give you some cream to help and as she gets older or even now you can use head and shoulders shampoo if its on the scalp. Be careful as she gets older of swimming pools, detergents etc. I always washed her clothes in dreft, it's an all natural detergent. Good luck!

Well, I ended up taking her to her doctor b/c she was breaking out so bad and really itchy. He 1st gave me an oral medicine to give her (which I did not do) with steroids in it. I used the aveeno lotion every diaper change to keep her skin hydrated that really seemed to help a lot, when we went back a month later for a checkup he said it looked a lot better and gave me a steroid cream to put on her twice a day for 7 days.. Wow that worked wonders, however I keep having to use it only once a day at night to keep her from flaring up again. I am against medicine in general, especially this since I have to keep using it. I keep hearing melaleuca is really great, I am going to have a friend make me a lotion to use hopefully this will work and be a natural fix! Thank you for your feedback, I am hoping the pool won’t be an issue since she loves bath time!!! 
