Anyone have a cure for cradle cap. My 2 yo and 6 month old both have it - but different types. I shampoo with baby shampoo and scrib a bit with a baby toothbrush but it is not really working. Anyone have any advice? TIA

There is an excellent cream called VANICREAM. My daughter uses it on her son who also suffers from mild allergic eczema. The "old" remedy was to use baby oil and rub a small amount to the affected area.
Hope this helps!

I remember just scraping it with a baby comb. I tried T-fal by Neutrogena, but I can't justify the price on how good it did. Baby oil and scraping it should work.

I would put baby oil on his head about 15-20 min before I would give him his bath and scrub is head real good.

All my kids had it really bad. The dr.'s never gave me a tried and true great remedy. What seemed to work best for me was to get their head wet and put the baby shampoo on right away. Then let it sit for a while. Let them play, whatever. Then after about 10-15 min. I'd start scrubbing with a comb and then comb it through. I did hear that dandruff shampoo is okay to use also, but that I did as a last resort and was super paranoid about it getting in their eyes. It worked, but I don't really think it was that much better than the other method. Eventually, they kind of phased out of having the cradle cap.

my 2 year old had cradle cap very bad up until about the age of 1. I used a product made specifically for cradle cap that I bought in the baby section; I don't remember the name of it, but I know it had winnie the pooh on the bottle. not too expensive and it worked; she hasn't had a problem since.

Both my babies had when they were a few months old. My doctor said to use head and shoulders. I would lay them on a couple of old towels on the counter by the sink (with their head over the sink in one of my hands) and wash their head with the head and shoulders just being really careful. They hated it and would scream (most babies don't like water on their heads), but it worked.

for my nephew we used melaleuca oil...but you can buy teatree oil at WalMart. After washing their head/hair mix it with water and rub it on their head...or put it on a cotton ball and rub it on there head.
