My daughter is scratching her head. Can I apply something to her scalp?

Postnatal, Your questions

Marie, ma fille de 5 mois se gratte la tête depuis presque 10 jours. Elle tire et perd beaucoup de cheveux, elle a des croûtes et des rougeurs à cause des grattages. Est-ce que je peux mettre quelque chose sur son cuir chevelu, par ex. de l’huile de bébé? Ou existe-t-il une crème qui pourrait aider? Elle dort mal et souvent de mauvaise humeur…

Merci!

Jeanne d’Arc


Bonjour Jeanne d’Arc, ton bébé fait probablement de la séborrhée dermatite que l’on appelle communément le chapeau. Je t’invite à lire mon billet sur la chaleur et le chapeau. J’en parle aussi dans la vidéo sur les malaises chez le nouveau-né.

 

À bientôt,
