Hi, my son is five and this morning I realised he had yellow scaly patches on his scalp. I'm not sure what caused it as he has never suffered from it before - not even a a baby. No change in shampoo. But he does have quite a thick mop of hair and he sweats. I wash it every day.

My daughter had it as a baby and I used baby oil which was a nightmare to get out and my son won't appreciated numerous hair washes. I cannot find Dentinox anywhere. Any other suggestions?

He has his hair washed every day. Should I stop doing this?
