How do You Treat Cradle Cap?

The best way to treat cradle cap is to massage some oil, like coconut, olive oil, or even baby oil, into the infant’s head making sure not to get it in their eyes. Let it sit for about 15 minutes then comb hair. The cradle cap should easily lift away from the scalp. Afterwards, wash infant’s hair with a baby shampoo. It may be necessary to repeat the process several times to remove it all.
