I don't necessarily think it's cradle cap...I tend to have scaly dry patches on my scalp too and I think it's sebhorric dermatitis? With the heater blowing on us constantly, the whole family is battling dry skin, but Lu's scalp is super flaky. Ay ideas about how to remedy this?

She has so much hair that it's very difficult to apply any spot treatment. I wonder if there's a wash out there for babies?

My naturopath says that more Omega 3 fatty acids will resolve cradle cap.

we have dry scalp too. I use California Baby's Calendula cream. Seems to help.

i am allergic to coconut, so i did the omega 3's. it took about a week of me taking them and bf her until her cradle cap disappeared along with the acne.
