I've been so stressed out on this issue. No joke. Our dd has cradle cap and has had it since she was 3 months old. For the life of me, I can not get rid of it. Her pedi said to brush her hair and it will go away but that's not working. If I LIGHTLY run my nail across it (I assure you I'm not hurting her) it will come off. She has so much of it and I am at a loss here.

Her hair is starting to finally grow in but she has reddish blond hair so you can still see it. Any one have any ideas on how to get rid of it? It is driving me crazy!

My dd had it too. Olive oil on her scalp overnight, then shampoo with dandruff shampoo. My Pediatrician recommended head and shoulders, but i used an organic brand i found at whole foods. Worked like a charm.


I'm a work in progress.

You guys are great! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Loves-our dd is 15 months old and I was wondering if h&s will burn her eyes? She is still at that stage where she HATES water on her hair.

I don't have baby oil itself but I have baby oil gel. Will that suffice?

Baby oil to soften and ex picked it all off. Used dandruff shampoo as follow up. He still would get patches when he was older.

Baby oil is exactly what my mom said she used!

Incidentally.. I apparently had it bad as a baby and still to this day have scalp psoriasis that I have to use a special shampoo for. I suppose they are probably related but I've never looked into it.

I brushed her scalp gently with a really soft natural bristle brush after loosening it a bit with oil. It finally went away by itself, but i dint remember when. I tried not to pick at it too much - cause I'm kinda keen on picking at things!

A couple of my boys had it bad. I used baby oil and picked it off mostly. H&S makes it stick down to the head so it's just less visible IMO. My ped said to use neutrogena t-gel but honestly I didn't see a big inprovement with that. I used a soft baby brush when I washed their hair to loosen it off and one of those cheap black combs after their bath to lift it off.

Baby oil & gentle picking. Only one of my three had cradle cap. When I finally did the baby oil & picking it went away quickly & never came back.

Our pediatrician recommended Aquaphor, which I found worked better than baby oil, which we also followed up with organic dandruff shampoo.

Raises hand for the baby oil and brush combo. We weren't to keen on putting the shampoo with chemicals on the babies head. It was the first baby so just about everything on the planet was considered toxic to the little one in our minds.

When one of my three had it, I didn't realize the key to really get rid of it, was to pick it all off, well, the big chunks of it that is, and I can remember that first huge flake..."omigod the baby's skin is coming off!". When I adhered to the advice of putting oil on it and washing, it seemed to do nothing but make it worse. The oil helps soften it so you can pick it off. I would pick it, after it's softened, unless the skin is raw, and then wash.

another one for olive oil. DS18 had it bad. My ex MIL told us about the olive oil. Rubbed it on his head, let him sleep, then brushed it off. It was a process but it didn't take that long.

Make a little paste with water and baking soda. Just let it sit for a minute and then shampoo out. All gone. No picking or brushing.


Feeling like I will never know the truth. Wondering if I can live without it or will it eat me up in the end?

My ds had it.

Pediatrician said to rub some baby oil on the scalp and let it sit for a little while, then to use a very soft bristle toothbrush to move in gentle circles on the patches. Unless I'm mistaken, the doctor also recommended using a small amount of Neutrogena TGel shampoo when washing, along with the baby oil/toothbrush regimen. Idk if it burns eyes but I'd be super careful if you try this.

I tried the gentle picking, but his scalp seemed to bleed so I stopped. The above method did the trick.

I thought we'd NEVER get rid of it.

T-Gel byt Neutrogenia is good for stubborn cradle cap/dandruff but it's very strong and yes, it will burn the eyes... I know, I use it occasionally.

I would be very very careful using it on a baby.

DS didn't have cradle cap, but he has a nasty patch of dandruff that only responds to T-Gel... but he's 11.5 now, so I can trust him to keep it out of his own eyes.

jrc: I figured it would. But I remember the pedi said to give it a shot because it was such a stubborn case. So I thought I'd suggest it.

Are you breastfeeding? Put breastmilk on it, allow it to dry overnight and shampoo it off, then brush.
Also in the olive oil camp. Both work. Good luck!
