The reddish, greasy, white, or yellowish, scaly rashes on the baby’s head are called Cradle Cap. These rough patches on babies’ heads are nothing but the baby form of dandruff. Cradle cap scientifically known as infantile seborrheic dermatitis is an extremely common baby rash seen in almost 70% of babies. Some babies get it from 2 to 5 weeks and get rid of it by 4 or 5 months, some may continue to have it till a year and some are born with it. It can be found on the baby’s face, behind ears, upper chest, and back too.

Causes of Cradle Cap

Studies say that it may happen when oil glands in the baby’s body are making too much of oil. The mother’s hormone also plays a major role which is passed to the baby through the placenta during delivery or when in the womb or later through breastmilk. Another reason sometimes mentioned is heat and humidity. These are not painful or itchy hence there is no need to worry and this is not contagious too.

  • Keep the baby’s scalp as dry as possible ensure no oil is applied.
  • Air conditioning can dry out the baby’s skin affecting the cradle cap to increase. Try a humidifier if air conditioning is unavoidable.

Remember to never peel cradle cap in your hand. It may not look harmful but it can cause irritation in the baby’s skin, skin peeling and even bleeding at times. If there is inflammation or infection, please speak to the doctor and he may prescribe antibiotics, a mild steroid-based cream, or an antifungal shampoo or soap.
