How do you Treat Toddler`s Dry, Flaky Scalp?



My 2-year old is constantly (VIGOROUSLY) scratching her scalp. Her pediatrician recommended using Selsun Blue no more than twice a week. I am currently using Selsun Blue naturals but find that her scalp still dries and flakes (usually white, sometimes yellow in color) if I only use it twice a week. What can I do? I`ve read that oiling the scalp may make matters worse, but if I don`t oil it, it dries and becomes flaky again. PLEASE HELP!
