Paediatrician

This is not due to sugar. The most likely cause of this rash is a temporary skin condition called 'seborrhoea' or 'seborrhoeic dermatitis' No treatment of the rash is necessary at this stage,but if the rash worsens your baby must be seen by your paediatrician.This rash usually disappears at the age of about 6 months.
