i asked my doctor and he prescribed me lamisil spray with something else in it.The stuff honestly worked miracles on my baby just a couple drops on his head before bed and the next day it was seriously all gone. If its in the hair ive used baby oil on my daughter hair left it 10 min and i combed it all out. Worked for me hope it works for you.

ps: the stuff cost about 35$ good luck

let me know if it works:)

I use Aveeno baby wash on my son and it seems to clear away the flakes but they usually come back about 24hrs later. My Dr. told me that it is not uncomfortable for baby and there are many things you can do to temporarily clear it up but it is usually completely gone by 6mo so you might have to wait it out.

I used the cradle cap that has baby winnie the pooh and friends on it. It is in a blueish green bottle. I am not sure what the name is, but you can find it in any store in the baby area of the store I know it has the word Natural on the bottle. That alwasy worked for me whne my Daughter had cradle cap.

Olive oil leave it on his head overnight and as you wash it in the morning the flakes should come away as you gently massage his head. Good Luck

I put oil on my son's head and left it on there for an hour or two and then washed his hair and used a comb. He seemed to like me using the comb on his head too and all these flakes just kept coming off and I haven't had a problems since.

head and shoulders helps get rid of cradle cap, but you have to be really careful not to get any in his eyes.

My pregnancy books say olive oil is just as good. Not sure if that helps but hopefully.
