Has anyone else experienced this with their baby? He has a bath every day. Hand he seems to get this flaky white crude behind both ears, no where else on his body. If I rub it in the bath is does come off in little bits but after a while he gets fed up with the rubbing and starts getting upset. What the hell is it?

Its just dry skin I think but it might be the start of a little bacterial infection. My DD2 had this and it got infected and opened up into sores. I found sudocream behind the ears every day cleared it up. Not when open sore though - I got special cream from the dr for that.

How old is the baby? Is it milk? If they're breastfed and on their side it could pour down behind the ears? Does it smell?
