Hair Care (Cradle Cap)

Cradle cap is a condition affecting the scalp of an infant. It is an accumulation of dead skin. It is quite common and is not a cause of concern.

What is cradle cap

Cradle cap (which looks like dandruff) is an accumulation of dead skin and oily secretions on the infant's scalp. The best way to treat it is to rub baby oil into the scalp and massage vigorously.  You should shampoo baby's hair daily, rubbing the scalp briskly with your fingers and then brush her hair with a fine tooth comb. 

For how long does cradle cap persist

This condition rarely persists beyond the first months, but if it does, or you notice it on other parts of the body, check with the paediatrician.
