Take him to the doc and rub a little bit of babyoil in his hair at least twice a week

When my kids were babies I found out that the "tear free" shampoo is pH balanced to the eyes, that's what they are not affected if you get soap in the eyes. With that being said it is not the same pH as the skin and often babies heads tend to dry out. Maybe try a non tear free shampoo or soap. The other thing I used was Therapeutic grade essential oils. Be aware that not all oils are the same. I can recommend a brand that I have looked into if you like as I would recommend Cradle Cap: Blend: Combine 2 Tbsp. almond oil with 1 drop lemon and 1 drop geranium or with 1 drop cedarwood and 1 sandalwood. Mix and apply a small amount on head.

Take him to the doctor and get cream or a antibiotic cream to put on the scratch. Take him to the doctor to get it checked out.
