Is this a rash?

My daughter has what appears to be a rash that starts at the back of her neck to her forehead. And her ear looks like it has dried skin with yellow crusty skin on it.

  • How old is she? Possibly sounds like cradel cap. Or an allergy to saop or lotion or food.

  • sounds like cradle cap...put baby oil all over it and gently rub. If its in her hair too, pour some oil on her head and gently comb it out. My youngest had it.

  • sara had a rash all over her face and her shoulders and neck, i didnt know what it was. but i noticed it got worse when she'd get hot (possibly a heat rash) and when she'd get upset. but i think it may have came from washin some of her clothes with our detergent, i dunno tho. and yea she's got some crust behind her ear, which i just discovered today. so tonight at bath time shes gettin a GOOD scrub down

    oh and baby oil works wonders on dry skin/cradle cap! she had some on her forehead, so i put a lil baby oil on it and gently rubbed it with her baby brush, her forhead was red, but it went away as well as the cradle cap!

  • cradel cap... johnsons baby shampoo, scrub pretty tough and for a while... it'll clear up in a few days.. don't pick at it since it can scab
