Hi.. my baby just completed 2 months.. I noticed some flaky dry skin on his scalp.. whitish yellow.. I checked it online and it came up as cradle cap.. what would be the remedy for this?



Neha Agarwal

Warm welcome to Babychakra Nisha.

If your little baby has a stubborn case of cradle cap, an oil remedy might help to loosen dry flakes: Rub a small amount of a pure, natural oil – such as almond or olive oil – on your baby's scalp and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Gently comb out the flakes with a fine-tooth comb or brush them out with a soft brush.

hey.. it happens with almost every infant... no remedy as such just some precautions ... try to keep scalp clean..by regular wash ,no oiling for sometime and no scratching at all.. :)

Nisha Lobo

try not to use diaper all the time.. u can use cloth nappies.. and at night u can use diapers so that your baby sleep well and is not disturbed by the wetness
