Does anyone else's baby have a swollen lymph gland due to mild cradlecap?

I took my 4mo to the doctor, ad he reassured me that the lump behind her ear was just a swollen lymph gland due to a mildcase of cradle cap. Am I crazy to still worry about it? It's been there since she was born,

  • My daughter has a severe/mod. case of eczema, which is what can cause cradle cap. She has swallon lymph node behind on ear and base of skull. Dr. said normal. Just from skin being infected. I used olive oil for cradle cap and a sea salt bath. For my DD if worked like a charm. I also rubbed cortisone cream on her scalp.

  • i took my daughter to the dr bc of that to i scared the crap out of me. dr said everything was fine, i could also mean she might have a lil cold coming on too. no worries tho its a baby thing.
