How To Naturally Prevent, Heal, And Treat Cradle Cap
Cradle cap is a very typical problem in babies. It will almost always be on the baby's head and will usually happen when the baby is about two months old to the age of six months.
Symptoms Of Cradle Cap:
- Thick patches
- Yellow patches
- Oily patches
- Scaly patches
- Itchiness on the head
- Dry skin on the head
- Flaking skin on the head
Cradle Cap Can Spread
Sometimes cradle cap will actually clear up and go away on its own even without treatment of any kind. However, most of the time cradle cap will not go away without any type of treatment.
It could even get worse or come back again and again. The good thing is that babies do not seem to be bothered at all with cradle cap, unless it is severe.
That is when it can become itchy, and a baby is not going to have a good time with that.
There are some severe cases of cradle cap where the patches of skin can appear on the baby's face, diaper area and armpits.
This can be most bothersome for baby and needs to be treated as soon as possible.
Since cradle cap can possibly spread to these areas it is very important to treat the problem as soon as it shows itself to prevent it from spreading.
