The dr had me you selsun blue, he lost hair and it got worse. I tried breast milk on my own, which helped at first, then went bad again. They had me try tar shampoo, no change for the better or worse. Then excessive oil treatments, MUCH WORSE. This time last week he looked like a burn victim. When my dh got home from work he was shocked.
I make my own saline, as it is cheaper and easy. The only thing is that it is only good for 24 hours before it is suseptable to bacteria growth. I boil water, measure out 1 cup, add a pinch of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. After letting it cool, I put in in a sealable containor. I dab it on about two to three times a day with a cotton ball. It really helps dry out some of the oozing nasty stuff. He got a little itchy during this process and ended up rubbing some of the fresh skin off on Wednesday night, so I have been having him wear a hat to sleep. That helps. Also, I apply 1% hydrocortisone as needed for itching.
