How do i get my baby hair to grow back after craddle cap has caused it to fall out? Is there any kind of special cream or grease to use?

my son's hair grew back within about a month. I didn't try any remedies, i just let it go naturally....and my boy had a squeeky clean head when his hair fell hair at all on the sides or back. His head was completly covered in cradle cap, from front to back and side to was bad. I still haven't completly gotten rid of all of it on the top. But ur baby's hair will grow back on it's own.

I don't know if there is any special creams or stuff, as I never even went to the doctor when my son had cradle cap. After his bath I just used an old fashioned cheap remedy of massaging baby oil onto his head..Some would say not to do this as it could irritate the baby..but it never irritated my son anyway..As it is totally normal that babies lose hair from birth anyway, I think dont worry about it as it will grow back naturally. Maybe speak to your local chemist,maybe avoid using beanies or any sort of head gear for your baby for a while(that's if you use them),and let nature take its course.Maybe if there is a cure you can tell me about it, it might work on my husband to get his hair back......hahahahahah
