Cradle Cap

A condition often found in infants is similar to dandruff. Cradle cap is very common, occuring most often in infants up to three months of age. It is a form of dermatitis that is usually not a serious problem. It is not dangerous for baby but is often embarrassing for mother. Dead skin and oil adheres to the baby's scalp causing a crusty build up and flaking. Without treatment cradle cap will usually go away by the time the baby is six months of age. However if it is pronounced, it is easily treated using natural methods and using gentleness and patience.
