CRADLE CAP

Written by

Crusta lactea, or cradle cap as it is technically known, is a form of SEBORRHOEA of the scalp which is not uncommon in nursing infants. It usually responds to a daily shampoo with cetrimide solution. Warm olive oil gently massaged into the scalp and left overnight, after which the scales can be washed off, also helps with the condition.
