My niece is 3 1/2 and has always had a bit of a flakey, peeling scalp but in the last few months it has become insane. It is not just a few scabs here and there, it is like large guppy chunks and she even said that it seems to ooze at times. She has been using tee tree oil shampoo to try and clear things up to no avail. For me, knowing that my niece is dairy sensitive in a way very similar to myself-eating dairy=prompt yeast overgrowth-I think that this sounds like a food sensitivity issue. But her dairy consumption has not increased along side the worsening of symptoms so it is very confusing.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of thing? Any ideas? TIA
