    Sorry to hear your little one is having troubles.
    I think you could search the site and find several good threads on this kind of thing. Here's one with almost identical concerns:

    Some things you could try, in addition to checking with your doc:
    -- rub less when washing
    -- sometimes wash with CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser instead of shampoo
    -- putting some cortisone on itchy spots
    -- immediately after bathing, put some safflower or sunflower oil on the scalp
