  • with the flaking it sounds like it could be excema (sp). But either way if you are worried get it checked out.

  • the eyebrow stuff sounds like cradle cap.... try washing her face with warm soapy water 2x every day andsee if that helps. really rub those spots, don't just wipe it

  • Doesn't sound like jaundice, but you can put her in the sunlight in only her diaper for half an hour every other day. If it starts to clear up, then that is what it is. Though I do suggest you call the DR's office.
