Another option instead of Olive Oil is Unrefined coconut oil (organic is the best but must be unrefined for all of the benefits even if not organic). use like you would the olive oil. Naturally, coconut oil contains antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties that will help get rid of the smell. It is very moisturizing and gentle. Also, it smells lovely,

Just keep an eye on it. It's best not to use shampoo on baby's hair as it dries the scalp out. You can use the olive oil at the first sign and then it doesn't get out of hand.
I found that it didn't really come back though.

Thank you all.. the olive oil treatment worked great.. I applied and could remove the flakes easily. Washed his head and it's clean now.. my question it's will it come again. What are the preventive measures. Pls let me know so that my baby won't get cradle cap again.

Stop using the DesOwen lotion unless it was prescribed by a doctor. It is a corticosteroid medication and is not approved for children under 18. Side effects could be: retarded growth in children under 1 year old, thinning of the skin (atrophy), which sometimes results in permanent stretch marks, fine blood vessels may swell and become permanently more visible under the skin surface, temporary loss of pigment in the areas of skin treated, skin may become allergic to the steroid, the skin may also bruise more easily and become more susceptible to infection.
