Shampoo: I suspect that your son has seborrheic dermatitis, or dandruff. You can look for the following types of shampoo at whole foods: •selenium sulfide shampoos. •tar-based shampoos. •zinc pyrithione shampoos. -salicylic acid shampoos. You don't state the age of your son, but if he is an infant and has cradle cap, you can rub baby oil in the area and scrub it with a soft brush in the bath.
