My 4 month old son has it pretty bad and now his hair is thinning out and in some areas completely coming out. He has had it since he was about a month old but it seems to have gotten worse. I was washing and brushing his hair regularly to remove the dandruff but now because of it his hair is almost gone where the cradle cap is most severe.
So I stopped washng his hair so much and have been saturating his hair with olive oil (I use it on my hair an dit works wonders) and covering it with a little kids "doorag" I found in the beauty supply store! It seems to help with the dryness but not get rid of it.
