Child has rashes on face, head and chest with itching. Prescribed Cutie Soft. Remedy?

my baby girl is 3 months and she has developed some rashes on her face head and chest. Pediatrician had prescribed Cutie Soft earlier which showed little improvement. later she prescribed Flutivate which we refused to use on baby as baby is very small to be treated with steriods. She is suffering from over one month and there is no improvements. What do you suggest as a treatment. Also there is a lot of itching in the rashes. kindly suggest a viable, safe and permanent solution.

Pediatrician 's  Response

Hi Sumit,
Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns.
It seems she is suffering from seborrheic dermatitis or atopic eczema.
Both conditions responds to mild steroid creams .
Cutisoft contains hydrocortisone a mild steroid & is relatively safe for young babies.
Flutivate is very potent steroid which can be absorbed through baby's thin skin & can have side effects.
You can either show to a dermatologist for confirmed diagnosis or can send photographs of the rashes.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish you baby girl a good health.
