This is a common form of eczema called seborrhoea. The good news is that your baby will grow out of this eczema by about 6 months. Wash her hair every second day with Elizabeth Anne's baby shampoo. Do not use any soap on her skin, just wash her with plain water using a soft washcloth. After bathing her apply EpiMax baby Cream all over where the rash is troublesome.
