Hi, my l is 25 weeks and has got really bad cradle cap, She never used to have it but all of a sudden it has just spread like wild fire, my HV told me not to bother with any lotions or potions that you can buy as they are a waste of money, and she told me to just use Olive Oil. I have been using this and it doesnt seem to have made any difference at all. Does anyone have any miricle cures that they can pass on to me?!?!?!
If you find anything good please let me know.
We have tried olive oil with not much use but a friend told us to try massaging baby oil into it every day but I don't fancy his hair being constantly oil slicked.
Sorry havent really got a useful suggestions but dentinox is half decent i guess?
My miracle cure was Canesten cream. My lo had the kind of cradle cap that goes down the body. It was stubborn especially on his forehead. The dr prescibed the canesten for the dryness, but I used it twice on his cradle cap and it was gone in less than 2 days. You must be carefull and not use it too much as it has Hydrocotesene, bbut if the doctor prescribed it for his delicate 6 week old sking then, I see no harm. I swear it's a miracle! I tried the olive oil before, but this was the best and now, he has nothing on him since.
Hi there. Best way to get rid of cradle cap is to wash baby's scalp right before bedtime with an organic coconut oil or a special shampoo/oil from the pharmacy. Use a baby cradle cap brush to remove the flakes and clear the skin. If you do this daily you'll be getting rid of your baby's cradle cap in no time. Hope this helps.
