Cradle cap is a build-up of natural oils and dry scaly skin, which can form a yellow/brown crust on baby’s head, eyebrows or behind the ears.
To remove the crusts, massage sorbolene and glycerine cream into the affected area two to three times a day. Leave on overnight, and wash off at bath time the next day, using a face washer — or gently brush to stimulate the scalp, and lift off the softened crusts (don’t pick off with your nails). Do this every day until it clears.
Every day, wash and massage baby’s scalp and gently brush their head, even if they don’t have much hair.
