    Holly has had cradle cap quite badly from a month or so old. We have tried medicated shampoo from doctor's, dentinox shampoo and olive oil, which worked a little bit but she smelt like a bag of chips! Someone suggested boots own brand cradle cap cream and it is amazing. Have only been using it for a week or so but it is lifting away and nearly gone now.

    We use dentinox but I've found I need to do it every other day otherwise it gets worse :(
    Might pick up the boots one next time I'm in town though

    I didn't think the boots cream would work as well as it has cos we had been rubbing in oil, brushing, washing religiously but it has done well for us. Couldn't try johnsons cos she reacts to it but bet she would have been slightly sweeter smelling if we had! Only downside to the cream is her slight combover hairstyle lol!

    Funnily enough I bought the Boots cream today and Dentinox. Was suprised how thick the cream felt, but it seems great and really moisturising. Fx it helps.xx

    I used the dentinox shampoo and Johnson's baby oil on Alice. She's had it a while now and it seems to have finally cleared up

    A friends mother from
    Poland said they sometimes use unsalted butter!

    She put some on N head and it worked a treat !

    It stinks
    But it works! x

    It's where they have extra skin on the scalp like dandruff but it's stuck to the head and looks scaled as well xxx
