seborrheic dermatitis/cradle cap

When DD was a baby she had cradle cap. It slowly started to go away and now she is four. I noticed she still has 1-2 patches on the top of her head. Is that normal for her age?? I also have it as well, I have one patch on the side of my head (its really small). But my doctor thinks mine is from my severe anxiety/stress. Is it odd that we both have this???

Ringworm is what you both have, get tested and treated

We dont have ringworm my doctor is sure. I was already wrongly treated for it the first time and it didnt resolve or get better at all. It doesnt even look like ringworm. It looks just like her cradle cap did when she was an infant, its just very very mild now.

Its not dandruff. Its only in one tiny spot, the size of a quarter, and 2 on her head. Its very mild. The rest of our hair has no flakes.

Im really not that concerned. I just found it odd my daughter and I both have it. Its extremely mild and mine barely itches, hers doesn't itch at all. My doctor gave me T-gel to help manage it.

I get small patched os SB on my eyebrows and nose, this stuff works REALLY good, better than the prescription meds.
