  • My son did that until about 6 months. I have no idea what caused it, maybe the baby shampoo? Their bedding?

  • Yes, my baby did that. It is from sebhorrhoeic dermatitis. It's a type of eczema. There are over the counter treatments for it, but we eventually had to get a prescription shampoo that immediately got it under control. Check with your doctor, because there could be other causes.

  • Maybe she has eczema? or maybe the air in your house is really dry from the heat and it's itchy.
