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
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.
