Cradle cap

Does anybody have any suggestions for getting rid of cradle cap in a 6 week old? It's not that bad, but really annoys me.

I followed the advice from various people on here and it worked for my daughter. I soaked her head in baby oil and waited an hour or so. Then I took a fine comb (I received one in a baby care package at my shower) and combed her head over and over. I could see the dead skin and crap coming off in the teeth of the comb. I did that throughout the evening then gave her a bath. It took it all away. She didn't have it that bad but I wanted to stop it before then. She was about 5 months at the time. Good luck!
