My baby is 11 weeks now, but he's having cradle cap on his head. Not sure if this is common. How long does it take to heal? Is there anything I should take note when bathing my baby?
my baby also had cradle cap. but she also has it on her eyebrows. should i just leave it or will it go away on it's own?
Thanks verieying. May I know what brand do you use for your baby?
My baby also had cradle cap on his eyebrows, and it went away on it's own around 10 weeks
dentinox bought fr watson. guardian should also have
My baby had a bit and it was hard to get out because he had so much hair. We used olive oil as well and gently combed it out. We also stopped shampooing his hair as that dries it out more.
I wanted to try dentinox, but my mother in-law said we can use coconut oil to comb it out. Is it safe to use? Anyone have any experience using coconut oil for baby's cradle cap?

My boy has quite a lot and it's dry. He has a small patch oh his side burn and i peeled it out but his hair peeled off too.Is this the wrong way? What is the correct way to treat and it usually last for how long?
My boy used to had cradle cap (till forehead) when he was about 1 month. my hand so itchy, try to peel it myself but it will appear again. tried baby oil and dentinox as well. about 2 months+, his hair started to drop and we shaved his hair short. then cradle cap starts to clear by itself.
What I did was to gently massage a few drops of baby oil onto his scalp before his bath, then bath him as usual, and use a washcloth to gently rub the scalp. Give a few minutes for the oil to 'soften' the skin.
