2 month baby, dry skin on the head. Help?

Moms typicly use mild shampoos to avoid eye irritation but these shampoos do not have the chemicals needed to break up skin oils.

Usually doing this a few times will clear the problem up completely. ...Read more

You also need to be exposed to get head lice - they don't just happen because of any skin conditions. However, once your scalp is infested, irritation from them biting the scalp can certainly lead to intense itching and scalp irritation. ...Read more
