    Cradle cap

    Advertisements
    Do I pick it off? I tried putting baby oil on her head, and brushing it but that didn't work. Any tips?

    My friends 3 kids all got it. She was told by her doc to use selsun blue. She tried it and it went away.

    I would put baby oil and wash it off with the gentle scrub brush vs brushing it through. Depending on the severity, it may take a few times

    Don't pick it off. Oil on the head for 10 minutes, use a soft baby toothbrush or scrubbie to scrub/lift it & then wash with soap. Don't be alarmed if it doesn't start to go away though. DS had it for about 6 months & it went away on its own. It didn't bother him so I wasn't too diligent about it.

    addi never had that but i would probably pick it off. it doesn't hurt them if you peel it off right? if it did, i wouldn't.

    i always brushed her hair with a soft brush in the tub while her baby wash is on her head cause i was worried she might get it.

    I used baby oil and this:

    I used the cradle cap formula and brush they sold at Walmart, it helped, but didn't fully go away until around 6 months.

    Cradle cap can be a bit annoying & itchy so I can't imagine picking it off feeling any more comfortable for them.

    We used Head & Shoulders and a clean dog scrubby. It was just a rubber brush with thin, soft rubber bristles.

    T-Gel works, too. Kalista's actually came back recently and so we use it once a week and it's helping. Just don't get it in her eyes.
