The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how to manage cradle cap:
- Wash the scalp with a non-medicated, gentle shampoo for babies. Ask the pediatrician for a suggested brand.
- Apply petroleum jelly, mineral oil or olive oil to the scalp to help scales loosen.
- Use a soft toothbrush to help loosen scales. Be gentle to avoid breaking the skin, which could lead to infection.
