My question is over the last couple of months my baby has had sores in his head (ALOT OF THEM) I thought it was from his dry skin condition or is it bugs biting him and he scratches the heck out of it? He had a bite yesterday bad welt looking thing on his back. Do they eat your scalp? or am I just getting crazier each day?
