Yes this could be due to frequent use of oil. Please discontinue oil use over scalp
, continue with body lotion to prevent dryness of body areas. Some infants are prone to have flakiness of scalp which could be seborrheic dermatitis
or due to atopic eczema
. Right now use a mild scalp wash like cetrilak scalp wash to wash hair. Apply it and keep it for five minutes then wash off. Usually with few washes, the scalp flakiness and red bumps should subside, if they do not please consult your doctor for a prescription of steroid
lotion for dryness and antibiotic cream for red bumps.
