Cradle cap is very common and should clear up by the time your baby is about 6 months old. Use a baby shampoo to wash your baby's scalp, Elizabeth Anne is a good choice.Apply a little olive oil to your baby's scalp after shampooing. After a few hours gently comb the scales off your baby's scalp. If this does not help you may need to use a mild cortisone cream such as Mylocort cream for a few days, but this is seldom necessary.
