  • My son got cradle cap long after he was a baby and it was also blamed on "not washing the soap out" by the lady that cut his hair. But I knew that wasn't the case because I always checked his head to make sure he got all of the soap out, so I talked to his doctor. Turned out it was a form of eczema due to a dairy allergy.
