So my daughter is 6 wks and at her 1 month check up the doctors said she had baby acne. While it looked like baby acne it started getting worse and worse. I noticed she started to get cradle cap on her head and ears. Her head just looked like dandruff, her ears got a crusty yellow substance on it and her face started to get really dry and flaky and severly red. I called the doctor and they said they will check her at her 2 month check up but it could be cradle cap on her face or eczema. Now I dont have any skin problems and neither does her father so I didnt think it would be eczema. I bought stuff "Gentle Natural Cradle Cap" stuff that worked wonders on her head and its been gone for about a week now but her face is still bumpy and dry. I been using eczema cream for babies by aveeno that has help some what with the redness but the bumps and dryness are still there and slightly red. SOOOO my question is has anyone else had this problem with their baby getting cradle cap on their face and what have you done that worked to help relieve it and or get rid of it. I know it bothers me more than her but as parents I know we get uppty quickly. Thank you so much in advance for any suggestion and comments.
