Limit the sugar intake.  Rubbing olive oil into the scalp and letting it sit.  Then gently comb hair and wash as normal.

 I always used baby oil and a comb.  But if it keeps coming back have you went to the doctors to get something stronger?

Agree with the 1st poster...But honestly I would have it looked at-sometimes an over-production of yeast in the body can cause something like that and be confused as cradle cap. This can happen in boys and girls

Good luck and God Bless

Quoting momtoamo:

Typically, the only sugar she really has is in fruit.  But I am curious, what does sugar have to do with it?
