Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Avoid oil massage on all costs.
Apply a calamine-aloevera lotion thrice daily to the skin.
Give her a mild antiallergic drops thrice daily for seven days.
Bathe her with a acidic soap for 14 days.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
