my 2month old grand baby

my 2month old grand baby

What are you guys opinion in regards of a 2 month old baby with seborrhoeic dermatitis? She gets the flare up around her eyes, behind her ears and folds of her little arms. The pediatrician said that’s normal for her but the poor baby is so irritable !!! my daughter in law is using aveeno lotion and aveeno 1% hydrocortisone. Is there any other natural product she can use?
