It doesn't really bother me - but my 23 mth old DS2 still has cradle cap. He has gorgeous blonde hair so you can't see his scummy scalp too much! But I can't stop picking at it . Obviously not the best thing to do. Other problem is he really hates having his hair washed... does putting olive oil on head actually work or just end up with a very slimy smelly child??? Isnt cradle cap supposed to have gone by now?
Dentinox cradle cap shampoo, or cider vinegar (sparingly). The cider vinegar works wonders I used it for DD1 who had terrible cradle cap, but didn't much like the smell so started using dentinox and it worked for us.
I realised both of mine had really scally scalps a couple of weeks ago, they both have thick hair and I hadnt noticed . I suspect mine might be from not having shampoo washed out completely as we tend to use the bath water to rinse them. Used a normal plastic comb to comb hair the wrong way, which removed a lot, then did it again when theyd been sat in the bath with wet hair for ages, which got rid of the rest. Now rise with a couple of jugs full of clean water from tap after hair wash, seems to have worked so far....
Both my sons had this - finally got rid of it on the 6(!) year old with some prescription foul smelling coal tar stuff, but this is only for over 6 year olds. My 5 year old son also has this and the Dr has advised him to use T-gel and they have prescribed this. At this age it's not cradle cap but a type of scalp eczema - so best not to be too rough, if you scratch it with a comb or pick it, it could bleed and become infected. I would get some advice from GP.
