hey mamas!<br>
Anyone know what this might be? My Sara has this flaky yellow skin on her scalp at the base of her hair- in patches on the front of her head. I don't think cradle cap is it.<br>
She is not itchy at all, and doesn't complain about it. But it looks kinda gross.<br>
Any thoughts?<br>
Dandruff? allergies? I'm at a loss.<br>
Thanks for your advice!<br><br>
Be well<br>

Dandruff. (actually cradle cap is baby dandruff in my understanding). What I did with my son was put coconut oil on the affected parts and let it stay on for a long while (as in two hours maybe). Then I gently massaged with a toothbrush and my fingernail. Not scratching, never broke the skin...just sloughing it off. I did it twice and it worked and so far no return. My son does have allergies but my gut is that this isn't related--at least in his case.
