In brief: Like this?

Seborrheic dermatitis ("cradle cap") can spread to the face, eyelashes ; behind ears.
It can be treated by using z-tar or other anti-dandruff shampoo. Lather up a fingertip's worth, shampoo ; rinse thoroughly. If the scalp is red for more than a few moments, discontinue use. If it looks infected or is very itchy, see her pediatrician for other treatments (miconazole or mild hc creams).
