The only aspect of DD's skin that's really out of control, is her scalp. It's just very scaly and flaky, her hair can barely grow through! We're seriously very tempted to just shave her head to contain it; it's very different than dandruff or something like that.
When she was younger, I used to be able to lift the scales off using baby oil and a washcloth in her bath, but now she won't sit still for it. We've been using something called P+S Baker, which is a shampoo and oil that you use on the scalp - it has salylic acid in it. It's still not working all that great, though.
I've got a cradle cap brush that I bought at Babies R Us (less than $8, may have been $5). I put Alex's shampoo (now Cetaphil) on that and then scrub his scalp with it in a circular motion. So long as I use it consistently it keeps his scalp clear of scales.
Do not sorrow; the joy of the Lord is your strength." Neh. 8:10
Emma has always had it really bad on her scalp. The dr had us start Nizoral dandruff shampoo for her since she was about 3. We were able to get away with the Cetaphil and the baby brush until she got hair.
