hi friends, some dirty skin is coming out of my my three months old daughters scalp, she has lots of hair, but skin is coming out between her heir?! is it some infection??

What you are seeing is probably cradle cap which appears like black flakes and if you observe the scalp you may find black sticky flakes on the scalp as well. This is not an infection but a fungal growth. Apply some savlon, massage the scalp and leave for half hour and then wash. repeat for a couple of days. If it does not reduce or clear up you will need to see the doctor for a stronger anti fungal application.

This could be cradle cap. you can massage some organic olive or coconut oil , leave it for fifteen mins, gently comb the scalp and wash the oil off with a mild baby shampoo. repeat for a few days

ensure u use a baby comb with extremely soft bristles and also do not leave oil on the scalp as it will only aggravate the condition.
