KDS, 17 March 2011 1:30

My 3 month old daughter has red itchy rash with scaling on her eye lids & back of the head(On the hairline). On the back of the head, the skin is scally and very red. There is little bit rash on her left cheek too. The pediatrician said it can be Seborrheic dermatitis. He asked me to use hydrocortizine but that did not help at all. She is very irritable as its very itchy. She is on breastmilk. Please suggest some natural remedies to cure this problem. Thanks
