Our expert says:
It is a kind of seborrheic eczema and often a yeast infection may be involved. I am worried that the Denorex may be too irritating for such a small child.
It may be worth your while to see a dermatologist for this as they often need antifungal shampoo also (like Niz shampoo - expensive but if prescribed by a dermatologist the medical aid should pay for it)
Borage seed oil may help but I have no idea if one can get hold of it in South Africa!
