TAKING CARE OF YOUR BABIES SKIN - 4 Common skin problems in babies
Cradle cap is the greasy, scaly patches that sometimes appear on the scalps of young babies. It is common and doesn't usually itch or cause discomfort, however, do not pick at the scales as this can cause an infection. Cradle cap is not contagious and is not caused by poor hygiene or an allergy. It usually appears in babies in the first two months and clears up without treatment within weeks to a few months.
Sometimes the hair will come away with the flakes but don't panic; it will grow back.
