    Default Cut behind DS ears

    Hi Everyone,

    I didn't know where to put this exactly (hope I'm in the right spot!)

    My DS (5 months) has cut/crack behind both ears and some other maybe dry skin but looks quite moist. I clean there every bath. Make sure it's dry but now it's popped up like this he cries when you touch there to clean it.

    Does anyone know what this might be and how I can help him out?

    Thank you!

    My ds2 gets similar behind/under his earlobe. I'm still not sure what causes it but I dust with cornflour (I use this for powder at nappy changes) and it clears up in a day or so.

    Never thought of that! I'll give it a go.
    I've not put anything on it because it seems the skin is broken everytime I look at it. When I get a good enough chance to look at it. If it looks closed up I'll give it a go.

    Does your little one pull and scratch at it? DS seemed to pulling at his ears (which I thought could be teething) but watching him closer he seems to pull and scratch behind his ears?

    It could be eczema. My ds gets cracks where his ear lobe joins his head that sound very similar.

    I use paw paw ointment for that. Soothes and protects.

    It could be candida? Candida flares up depending on diet and immune system balance. A sugar free diet is recommended if this is the cause. My nephew had it behind his ears.
