Suggest medication for scaly rashes on skin and scalp and for nasal blockage

Good morning doc,I m here to discuss my 8 months old baby boy health issues. ...since his birth he has redness on scalp and it turned scaly and patches all over the scalp. ..and hair started falling as patches and smells bad....Doc prescribed covate-s lotion to apply all over the scalp and used ketaconazole shampoo weekly once headbath. ..He lost all the hair and when he was 4 months old and got new normal hair...then I stopped using lotion... 5th month we found reddish rashes on stomach....paediatrician gave desonide ointment. ..It was cured. ... Now he is 8 months old....again 2 weeks back scaly patches were found on left shoulder and went doc....He gave momate. ...used but no result. ..Instead it spreads to the right side also on back....and reddish rashes on left another doc gave eumosone. ...and now on scalp front portion again reddish rashes develops along with itching. ..can I use same covate over there again or eumosone on scalp... One more important thing is he has nose blockage problem since his 2nd month...still it s there...During summer also he struggled a lot. ...We give nasal drops..and sometimes steam through nebuliser using normal saline. ... I and my husband have dry skin.... Please doctor I need guidance to take well care of my son...He struggled a lot so far because of these issues... Can you suggest me healthy diet also? and which medication is good for skin,scalp,and nose blockage? What are the precautions should I take? In two weeks we are going to remove his hair as a ritual, is it a right thing or not?

Thanks and welcome to HCM .
You can safely perform your ritual after 2 weeks.
Your history suggests that he is suffering from Seborrhea .
Better consult a Dermotologist for correct diagnosis and treatment .
It takes along time for cure.
Hope this reply is OK for you .
Please feel free to ask further queries if any.
