What is meant by cradle cap and how to deal with it?

This is a type of dandruff that affects babies. It causes crusty, yellow patches on their scalp.

Calming Cradle Cap:

  • Wash your baby’s hair with a gentle shampoo daily.
  • Gently massage their scalp with your fingers or a soft brush to loosen the flakes.

The cradle cap usually clears up on its own within a few months. See a doctor for a prescription shampoo or cream if it’s severe.
