Eczema is usually found in allergic babies and there is a weeping itchy rash which involves the cheeks, neck and folds of the arms and legs usually. A dry scalp with scaling of the skin, often yellow scales, and a rash which affects the tops of the ears, forehead, neck and shoulders is more likely to be seborrhoea. This is a self limiting condition and babies with seborrhoea are not allergic usually.
