Red patch in the scalp with white crusty scales in the age of 2 Yrs is most likely CRADLE CAP. Treatment : 1. Apply coconut oil. After 15-20 minutes when scales become soft rub it with a soft brush to loosen them. Then do a shampoo bath with anti dandruff shampoo. Shampooing to be done frequently (not more than once a day). 2. Topical antifungal like selenium or Ketokonazole shampoo might help. However selenium may cause irritation in few individuals. 3. To reduce inflammation mild steroid may be applied. 4. If itching in there give Antihistaminic of choice.

Scalp Psoriasis. It is a common skin disorder that makes raised, reddish, often scaly patches. It can pop up as a single patch or several, and can even affect your entire scalp. It can also spread to your forehead, the back of your neck, or behind and inside your ears.
