    Question Cradle cap

    Advertisements
    Matt has it REALLY bad! I've tried everything that I can think of. Baby oil, just brushing it, eucerin, two types of medicated creams that his doctor prescibed and the cream specifically for cradle cap. Nothing works. I would just let him grow out of it but he keeps itching at it and scratches his face. I clip his nails but somehow the little monster still scratches himself. Please help! I'm out of ideas.

    I just used baby oil (the gel kind) and when I washed his hair, I used a comb and scratched at it to try and get rid of it.

    I would just let it be, maybe put mittens on him, I know my girls always tore those off though. My girls had it, not bad but they had it and it went away around 3-4 months old. We tried everything too like the baby oil and that did nothing but make their hair oily.

    What worked for us...Just normal shampoo and a tooth brush. Get a soft tooth brush and use that to scrub your babies head. It will give the strength you need but not as hard that you will hurt him. Just scrub away.

    this child had it, it came right now. I use the stuff from great clips.

    My niece had it until she was almost 2. My sister tried everything but there was one stubborn little patch that just wouldn't go away. She ended up using salon shampoo and conditioner (can't remember the brand but it was oatmeal and honey in a blue bottle I think) and that was the only thing that worked for her. Crazy!
