Cradle Cap Home Remedies & Natural Cures
For a cradle cape that is thick, put on a mild mineral oil such as Baker’s P & S Liquid. You can get it at a drugstore over-the-counter. Put this on at night and then use a fine toothed comb to comb out the scale in the morning. Then wash it out. This is one of the best cradle cap home remedies.
If cradle cap begins inching down behind onto the neck and behind the ears, you can put a 1% or .5% hydrocortisone cream on the area. This is available without a prescription at the drugstore. If you put this cream on 3 times each day, it should make the crust go away.
Cod Liver Oil Home Remedy for Cradle Cap
For a good cradle cap home remedy, give your baby a very small quantity of cod liver oil every day. You can put it in a little milk.
Put cod liver oil and vitamin E directly onto the cradle cap area at night and then lightly brush it out in the morning.
Put a little baby oil on your baby’s scalp and then brush the hair. Do this each day until it is gone.
This is a natural remedy for cradle cap that works wonders! Put real butter (not margarine) on your baby’s head. Then brush it out with a comb and after that wash your baby’s head to remove the rest of the butter.
To two tablespoons of olive oil add two or three drops of lavender oil (real essential oil – not synthetic fragrance) and then use a soft brush after you apply it.
Put a dandruff shampoo like Selsun Blue on your baby’s head two times each week for two weeks. My daughter had cradle cap when she was born and her doctor gave her a prescription for this. Be careful not to get it in the eyes.
Coconut Oil Cradle Cap Natural Home Remedy
My friend suggested I rub extra virgin coconut oil into my baby’s scalp to cure cradle cap. Sure enough it disappeared in about 3 days. We would put this on an hour before giving her a bath. It is also very good for the skin. This is a great cradle cap home remedy.
Instead of putting baby oil or mineral oil (both are petroleum products) on my baby's scalp, I found a really good light lotion about the consistency of mineral oil. This is organic with the main ingredients being aloe vera and coconut oil. It's made by Ocean Lovers.
My daughter suffered from really bad scaly thick cradle cap. I absolutely had tried everything under the sun. One of my mom’s friends who has 9 children suggested that I mix half baby shampoo with half dandruff shampoo. A patch about 2 inches across was gone in seven days! Every night we would was her head with this during her bath. I was really happy this worked so well.
