Cradle Cap treatment

No matter what I try I can’t get rid of the flaky skin on my babies head. It is also quite crusty in places. The clinic nurse said it is nothing to worry about. Is she correct?

In the meantime, there are a couple of things you can try that should reduce the severity of the cradle cap, even if they do completely solve the problem. Try putting olive oil on the cradle cap, leaving it overnight, and then brushing the hair gently before washing it. You can do this for several nights in a row, and should see a gradual improvement in the scalp condition. You can also try common dandruff shampoo, but this is quite harsh for a baby and can, in some cases, worsen the situation. Keeping the head as dry as possible may also lead to improvement.
