Crusting and white or yellow scales on a baby's scalp.
Cradle cap is crusting and white or yellow scales on a baby's scalp. It's also known as infantile seborrheic dermatitis.
Symptoms are patchy scaling or thick crusts on the scalp, skin flakes and mild inflammation.
Cradle cap usually clears up on its own within a few months. A mild shampoo can help loosen and remove the scales. A medicated shampoo can help in severe cases.
