My oldest son was plaqued with Cradle Cap, well into his teen years. It was so bad, that his hair was falling out. Biotin deficiency was one of the many problems that was the root cause. Suggested Adult dosage is 300mg daily. Also changing his shampoo helped. The weeping suggests an infection of some sort, Olive Leaf extract is very gentle, swab on the affected area 2-3 times a day. Purchase a reputable brand, put a couple of drops on a cotton swab, and apply. The itching can imply a fungal infection. Can also be the dryness, apply coconut oil, very effective for dry skin. Another effective healing agent is vitamin E. Purchase a reputable brand, in capsule form, puncture the capsule with a straight pin, and apply the liquid directly on the ear, donot put into ear canal. Vitamin E will speed healing and treat the cause. You may take vitamin E orally, but donot exceed 400IU daily. It is a blood thinner, and may be a problem above that dosage amount. Never take vitamin E with warfarin, coumadin or any other prescription blood thinner. I hope this helps.
