Cradle Cap Treatment in Bangalore

Cradle Cap

Cradle cap is a patchy, greasy, scaly and crusty skin rash that occurs on the scalp of infants and sometimes toddlers. It is a variant of seborrhoeic dermatitis that is confined to the scalp but can very rarely involve other areas of the body such as behind the ears, in the creases of the neck, armpits and diaper area.

In my years of practice in Pediatric Dermatology, I have come across many myths and queries about a common skin condition called 'Cradle cap'.

FAQs

This is the most common myth associated with cradle cap. It is not due to poor hygiene, food or any infection. It is rather one of the commonest skin conditions in the pediatric age group.

" Cradle cap" generally requires no treatment apart from the regular application of oil and gentle combing of the skin flakes without rubbing. You need to consult your Pediatric Dermatologist if the baby has an itchy scalp or the skin looks inflamed.

This is absolutely harmless and is mostly not itchy.
