My daughter is a little over 5 months and has cradle cap. Anyone know any tricks on helping it go away?
Thanks

That's what we used...back in the day!  Be sure it's a fine-toothed comb. You can shampoo after the oil treatment.

this is what i did... oil her scalp.Then take a fine tooth ccomb and just rub it through the hair. repeat. repeat until it seems like the flakes are stopping. (dont overdo it or you can scratch the head raw). when your done immediately wash the hair to get the oil and dandruff out.... do not oil head again until the next time you plan on doing it.
