my son is 2 1/2 months old. I have started to notice that around his eyebrows he gets like flakey skin. I put baby oil on it but it hasnt really done anything other than mask the problem. It almost seems kind of what you might see with craddle cap but its on his eyebrows. Any ideas on how to get rid of it, or is it just normal?

I think you may really want to take a look at that website that I sent to will really benefit you in all aspects and take care of the little ones skin care problem).... I shop with the company as well they have a product called Renew and it is highly effective in treating eczema - naturally.

You also need to use natural products when washing his clothes

actually it sounds like eczema. Maybe ask the nurse at his next shots, or take him into the doctor if you get really concerned.

you can try hydrocortizone creme. my daughter had that on her head but it wasnt cradle cap according to the dr so he told us hydro creme helps and also what stevie said was what we done also

it could be craddle cap but if its not its probably just dry skin try mosturizing lotion if that doesn help treat it like craddle cap idk if your son has it on his head or not but i know i was told when my son had some exsima or whatever on his sholder to put some baby oil about 30 to an hour before bath and then at bath take a soft brush to it and then wash the oil off i was told you can do that for craddle cap also but idk since my son didnt really have that problem you can call the hospital and ask them what they think it is since its the weekend and the drs office isnt open but thats what i would do good luck hope it goes away soon
