Cradle Cap & Eczema
My son is 2 months 3 weeks old. Since past few weeks he got cradle cap and enzema. He has a itchy scalp. My Ped suggested me to use Cetaphil moisturizer and desonide cream for the body. For the scalp he asked to put coconut oil. Please advice how to cure the cradle cap, itchy scalp and eczema.

It's very common condition now.dont do daily shampoo f baby. Use spoo Baby shampoo twice a week. Avoid excessive dryness of scalp. Cradle crap subsides after around 6months. Cetaphhil is good mosterizer. Apply 2 to 3 times a day to keep eczema under control. You can try canesten scalp lotions few10to20 drops on scalp at night for 5to 7 days and then stop.
