Cradle cap is a set of whitish (sometimes yellow) crusts that appears on the scalp of babies, and although its name makes you think, its appearance has nothing to do with breastfeeding.

It is important to bear in mind that although it is not a disease, but an aesthetic issue , it is necessary to keep it under surveillance because it can become a problem, since it is susceptible to growth and infection.

Although the most effective treatment is very simple (just apply baby oil , leave it for about 15 minutes, run a soft comb through the head several times and wash), it is advisable to accompany it with a special shampoo that helps calm and regenerate the area.
