hi all
my6yr old dd has had a really itchy head&been scratching alot for past3wks
at first i thought it was nits as one of her friends she had been playing with had had them so chkd her religiously every day but found no nits or eggs.
since last wk or so though ive noticed some red spots in the places shes been the last few wks she has been showering herself&washing her hair by herself with my or dp's supervision&im wondering if it could be that shes not swilling the shampoo out properly.
we havent changed her shampoo or anything though does use different shower gels as we do.
or maybe it could be a heat rash but its just on her head.shes had the odd itchy spot on bottom of her back but nowhere else that weve noticed.
any ideas?
