You do not mention how old your little girl is. I cannot be sure about her rash without being able to see her. If she is still a baby she probably has seborrhoea or cradle cap and does not need any of these treatments you mention here. Just use an ointment called Mylocort once daily and wash her hair with Elizabeth Anne shampoo.If she is older than 2 years she may have a fungal infection of her scalp and the treatment you are using should help.Do not use the spray on her scalp as I do not know what it contains.
