Dry skin/cradle cap

Post  x-Kell-x on Thu Sep 20, 2012 7:13 am

Lily appears to have dry skin on her head, I'm not sure if it's cradle cap or not to be honest, I just wondered if anyone had any genius ideas on how to treat it?

We were told to use olive oil on Jamie's although it seemed to make it worse for him

Don't use johnsons it's too strong. I use simple top to toe wash, Tamsyn is same, it's dry skin and not yellow like cradle cap.

I use it with Lucas too now and it's very gentle, doesn't effect his skin whereas johnsons causes huge skin probs :-s

I was recommended olive oil but with sophia, it didnt clear the problem, just made her hair all gunky and her head all smelly! But with her it was cradle cap. I used top to toe wash with her. And she did have very dry skin for a long time.

With joshy, i found that dry skin and cradel cap appeared when i started using any kind of top to toe or shampoo thingy so I just used water for ages but i do use a cradle cap shampoo now when its needed.

I was told by my HV to use olive oil on Noah when he was a baby, which I did for months. It made no difference, and then a friend of mine (who's a GP) told me to stop using the oil as it CAN make their hair fall out Shocked Sure enough, when I stopped using it, Noah's hair grew lovely and thick and long as up until then he'd had virtually none. I started using dentinox and the cradle cap cleared up immediately.
