my daughter has had a large patch on the back of her head that oozes and is very red and irritated underneath since she was 2 months old.the doctors have told me it's cradle cap its nothing and will go away she's been through 3 rounds of antibiotics creams and what not.we finally saw a specialist and he tested it and found it was a bacterial infection she went through yet another round of antibiotics and it was gone for the first time in 11 months only the other day i noticed it starting back up yet again after the antibiotics was done.i'm getting desperate as everyone seems to be brushing me off any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I'm not sure how you feel about natural remedies, but you can have her drink the Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. Put 2 tablespoons in 8 oz. of water with Stevia. The recipe is on the bottle or on the website. What this does in makes to body "disease-free" by putting it in akaline balance. I know this may sound wierd, but it works.

Hi Sarah,

My daughter is 19 months now and I've found that Arbonne's Baby Wash, lotion and oil work well on her. I am a Pediatric nurse and I've used the products on both kids. They are pure,safe & beneficial. They really work. I stopped using the wash and lotion on her for a few months and her cradle cap came back last Fall when she was like 16 months, I ordered more Arbonne for her and used it consistently and it is gone again. I will continue to use it on her. it's the best! It's great for kids of all ages. they have a safe sunscreen line too. It works on eczema, cradle cap & psoriasis..

No joke. no gimmick! is my website. I've been selling the products since last Fall because I believe in them for the entire family!!

I would call the specialist right away.  Sometimes the bacterial infections can come back if it wasn't fully taken care of the first time.  I would make sure that everything is cleaned and sanitized.
