It could be cradles cap, which I a build up of the dead skin and oil from the scalp. Baby oil will help get it out and then use a soft scrubby brush on baby's head when you bath them to help keep it away. It also could be eczema which I would then try either Aveno products and try to limit bathing to a few times a week.
