Hi, thanks for contacting me. Your son is possibly suffering from eczema/ dandruff of the scalp. Treatment would involve keeping the scalp'moist' use a good quality oil to massage the roots and then wash it off after 10 minutes with a baby'no-tears' shampoo. If the problem persists, talk to me on private chat or consult your pediatrician. Warm regards
