red scalp

My daughter has had a large reddened area on the back of her head near her neck for around 2 months. It bothers her constantly it flakes and swells and even looks wrinkled. We have treated it for ringworm and that didn't phase it at all. We have tried several home treatments like medicated lotions and triple antibiotic and nothing has helped and the area has gotten a little bigger in the last 2 weeks.

Hi, if your daughter sleeps on her back then she may be allergic to something on her pillow i.e. the material it's made of or even the soap powder that's used to wash it. Alternatively, she may have a skin condition such as psoriasis. Hope this may help, regards Mark.
