Hi does anyone know what this is? And what to use on it? I've tried baby lotion and cradle cap shampoo hmm

Baby excema or ringworm? You could try aqueous cream and see if that helps or show the pharmacist?

That looks like something my DD had. I assumed it was cradle cap. It spread to behind her ears and was sore to touch. I rubbed a little coconut oil in it and it was gone in a couple of days.

Yes good idea, I'm going to show pharmacist tomorrow, don't think its ringworm as its not spread and he doesn't seem to be irritated by it.. 2 weeks wait to see dr hmm

Coconut oil for everything. Avoid perfumed products and baby lotions
