My baby has a rash on her face and dry skin around her ears

Hello Doctor , My baby s 6 weeks old, I took her to the doctor last week because she has cradle cap, in addition she broke out in what seemed to be a rash on her face and dry skin around her ears. The doctor said that e the rash is due to dry skin/moisture loss and prescribed Diprobase cream. A week on I have noticed the skin peeling on her face and becoming dark, but in some places where the skin has peeled it is bleeding. She also has a long line near her forhead which is bleeding as if she scratched herseif (but did not). Her rash is still present in her neck and behind - it is very red. PLease help.
