skin behind ears

Posted by Alina on Thursday Jun 12, 2008 Under useful tips

My 2 month old son has been having some dry, crusty skin behind his ears, which smells a bit. I spoke to the pediatrician about it, and he said that it’s eczema (a form of dermatitis). Rather than scratching it off, I should make sure to thoroughly dry behind his ears after a bath, and apply Aquaphor (ointment) to the area twice a day. It worked great! After a few days, his skin was back to normal.
