Tried everything?: Can you be a little more specific about what is "everything?" Has the pediatrician taken a look at this lesion on the head? Nothing like direct visualization to know whether fungal, bacterial, anti-virals, or simple steroids will do the trick. Got any pictures you wanna share?

Please see a skin MD: This appears to be an infected eczematous lesion. Please see a dermatologist.
