My 3 y/o has a red, oozy, yellow crusted rash on his forehead. I thought it was excema, but now I'm thinking it's Seborrheic dermatitis. Has anyone had this? or their kids? I need a solution to clear it up.

  • Clean it up with peroxide and see what happens and make sure it doesn't spread.

  • Seborrheic Dermatitis is basically cradle cap... the infant dry skin problem... I personally would take them to a doctor because it is so close to their brain and the nearest entry is the eyes..
