Cradle cap in 4 year old

Anonymous

So weird but he has cradle cap!!! It’s not dandruff he says it doesn’t itch - he’s never scratching his head but it’s definitely cradle cap (he had it as a baby too so I know what it looks like). I’ve tried the oil scalp massage but results are short lived. I’ve never known anyone older than 1 who has cradle cap!

    My daughter has it. She’s 2.5. Even though it’s not dandruff I started using Happy Cappy shampoo on her 3x/week and it’s definitely working!! The flakes are much much less noticeable. I’m taking her to see a dermatologist in December and this is one of the things I plan to discuss with him. If I get any helpful tips I’ll be sure to share! ❤️

    I actually used the happy cappy shampoo on her daily for ~a week before i saw an improvement. Once it got better I dropped to 3x/week. Oh and I use Baja baby unscented conditioner too.
