Hello and welcome to HCM,
The crusty brown scabs are suggestive of seborrhea
, eczema, dermatitis
, or scaly dermatosis
You need to consult a dermatologist
for clinical examination, relevant investigations (especially biopsy) and thus further management.
Seborrhea is a common ailment seen in infants and toddler.
It commonly affects the scalp and flexures of arms and legs.
this includes the region of the elbow and region behind the knee joint.
Anti-fungal treatment usually suffices and the disease usually clears away as the child grows.
However, definitive diagnosis can only be made after clinical examination and investigations.
Thanks and take care
Dr Shailja P Wahal
