how do you fight cradle cap

Posted by   + Show Post
I've been brushing her hair as instructed but this morning i noticed a patch of flaky dry looking skin that I'm assuming is cradle cap. I worked at it with a brush for awhile but couldn't get it to go completely away. How do i stop it from getting worse and how do i get rid of what she already has?

Olive oil and then comb with a baby comb.. It works straight away and is the best :) I used it for all my 5 children..

Take your finger nails and scratch over it like you would to wash her hair. then use lotion or baby oil on it and let it soak in. it's just really dry skin that is on the head only. (hence cradle cap)
