Did you know this about cradle cap?

So our DD got a slight case of cradle cap a few weeks back. Her cradle cap went away and I started noticing these rashes on my hands, who knew it was contagious?! I did some research on dermatitis, and a form of dermatitis in adults is called cradle cap in infants. Hmmm, who knew, and its gross on me lol

  • josies mommy, you're right, and that is exactly what I said in my post too. I said a form of dermatitis :)Which came from my DD cradle cap, and it is contagious, rarely does it spread to other people, but it does happen :)

  • My neices had this. Aloe vera juice or a quality aloe cream would help you both. This really cleared it up for my neices.
