My 10 week old has quite bad cradle cap over quite a large area. I tried olive oil but it made her head red. I'm now using boots cream but it's not shifting it. Apart from it looking unsightly it's got an unpleasant smell to it. Any suggestions as to how to get rid of it? Thanks
We've had this problem also for months and it also caused dermititis on the face. Have tried almost everything from Almond Oil, Dentinox and more recently Calpasal shampoo. DS now 7 months and over time it's gradually improved on its own but feel it's more down to time than anything else. Sorry can't help more.
Dentinox shampoo worked for my DD. but I think it's also just time...
All the health visitors say olive oil, but my GP said you need to not leave it on for too long as the cradle cap is like a yeast infection and the oil 'feeds it'. Don't know if that is true, but was an interesting point!
