Health Tip: Easing Baby's Cradle Cap

(HealthDay News) -- Cradle cap is a common condition in babies, causing flaking on the scalp.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests these remedies to treat cradle cap:

  • Wash hair frequently with a gentle shampoo or cleanser, and gently brush with a soft-bristled brush.
  • Use a dandruff shampoo if your pediatrician recommends it.
  • Don't put baby oil on baby's scalp, as it can cause build up.
  • Rub petroleum jelly into baby's scalp to help moisturize and loosen scales.
  • Use a hydrocortisone cream or lotion if approved by your pediatrician.
