thanks for writing to health care magic.

Is there any white flaking of the scalp.

you have mentioned the neck is red and blotchy........ i think of allergy to some of the ingredients you may be applying on the scalp.

try to change them and see. change the oil and shampoo

natural lice killers may not be effective and small lice may not be detected easily.
try and consult you doc for the same

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
