Brief Answer:
Cradle cap

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM. Can understand your concerns.

I have seen the picture that you have attached. This is definitely cradle cap which is a fungal infection of scalp.

Use cetrilak shampoo alternate day for 1 week.
Also use Zole-f cream local application two times a day on the affected area.

The hair will come after 2 to 3 weeks.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.

Needs incision and drainage

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have seen the picture that you have attached.

This is a big pus filled lesion. It will most probably require incision and drainage. You need to get the child examined by a doctor immediately.

Take care.
