My 8-month-old daughter just developed this sore/rash on her scalp?

My 8-month-old daughter just developed this sore/rash on her scalp. I can’t tell if it’s eczema, cradle cap, or psoriasis. Her father suffers from plaque psoriasis as well, so I’m a little concerned. Is there a cream or anything I can use? A friend suggested colloidal silver as well. Any help would be much appreciated.

In my opinion it is Tinea capitis,(ringworm)
Usually i would prescribe the medications but i do not know the right doses for an 8 month old child
I recommend you see a dermatologist

Good Luck

This could really be eczema or psoriasis .
The dermatologist can confirm it.
simple remedies — like adding oil to bathwater or using a good moisturizer on the skin — can also help.
If your baby’s psoriasis become more severe, it may need to be treated with light therapy or even oral medication. If itching is a problem, the doctor may also prescribe antihistamines, and if it looks like there’s a bacterial infection (from scratching the rash, for example), she’ll prescribe oral antibiotics.
Thanks..

hi
this is a ringworm infection.
rather uncommon at this age though.
see if proper hygiene is maintained when you handle the bay.
maintain clean environment.
apply local creams.
consult a dermatologist.

HI
THIS IS FUNGAL INFECTION.
ANTIFUNGAL CREAM APPLICATION LOCALLY WILL HELP.
CONSULT A DERMATOLOGIST IF THE RASH DOESNT IMPROVE.
DO NOT RUB OR SCRATCH THE LESION.

hello there
seems to be allergic eczema with signs of early secondary infection.
apply local anti allergic creams for 3 days.
if it does not show any signs of improvement,do consult a dermatologist.
do not neglect.
