Q:

Hi . My 2 and a half months old baby have some rashes on his face and some dandruff like appearance that is in yellow color on his head.. what would be the reason for these and is there any home remedy or should I take him to a Dr.



You should visit a doctor for this . This could also be cradle cap.

Dandruff is fungal and hence will need some treatment which can be prescribed by the doctor. Often when dandruff scales fall on the forehead and face it can result in rashes. Both could easily be connected

Check may be it could be cradle cap. For dandruff and cradle cap best is to apply oil. The oil is teh only way to remove. Apply the moms co baby natural hair oil. It will help to remove. Massage gently well on try to remove with oil only. Donot comb pls .
