Treatment for Cradle Cap: Do I Need a Special Shampoo?

There are things in life that will run their course whether or not you’re paying attention.

A cold will fade eventually without medicine. Plants will grow in your yard whether
you care for them or not. You’ll never need to fill your tank again if you only ever drive downhill. In each
these situations, doing nothing is an option, but it’s certainly not the best.

Your coughs and sniffles will eventually clear up on their own, but you’re going to
suffer needlessly without medicine. Even if you do nothing with your garden, plants will appear. But you
probably won’t like the weeds that show up. And yes, you can drastically cut down on your fuel costs by only
taking slalom paths home, but…yeah, that’s pretty much impossible.

H2: What Does All This Have to Do With Cradle Cap Treatment?

Nothing, and everything. That’s the magic of metaphor.

Here’s the connection; in most cases, cradle cap will clear within a few weeks or
months. Doing nothing is an option. But just because an option is available doesn’t mean it’s a good one.
Nothing is stopping you from filling your front yard with poison ivy and thorn bushes, but you don’t do it
because you’re not a maniac.

A prevalent myth says you don’t need a special shampoo for eczema and cradle cap
The germ of this myth is rooted in truth. Treatment for cradle cap is unnecessary in
most mild cases. But for moderate to severe cases, special shampoos can dramatically reduce the flaking,
crusting, and scaling associated with the condition.

If your little one could benefit from a treatment for cradle cap, reject the
myth that you don’t need it. Mild cradle cap shampoos formulated with zinc pyrithione give you control over the severity of your child’s symptoms and helps reduce their discomfort.

How a Medicated Shampoo Treatment for Cradle Cap Can Make a Difference

Cradle cap is thought, in part, to be caused by an excess of Malassezia, a yeast
naturally found on human skin. Zinc pyrithione, the active ingredient in many dandruff shampoos, is a gentle
anti-microbial that controls this yeast, promoting a healthier skin biome. When paired with a mild,
hypo-allergenic shampoo, you get a powerful yet gentle ally in the fight against cradle cap.

Why Happy Cappy’s Cradle Cap Shampoo Works So Well

You avoid harsh ingredients that can further irritate the skin and reduce the
condition’s severity and discomfort. In no time, your baby’s happier, healthier, and more comfortable!

Look for a shampoo formulated for babies with sensitive skin. Products like Dr.
Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash are made to cleanse gently, removing dirt and oils
without stripping away moisture or
irritating the skin. We’re the natural alternative to the harsh chemicals found in other products.

Zinc pyrithione has proven itself a safe and effective treatment for dandruff and
seborrheic dermatitis for over 50 years, and it’s mild enough to include in baby shampoo. You’ll reduce the
severity of your child’s symptoms and give them relief from their dry, uncomfortable skin.

The moral of the story is this; you only need a special shampoo cradle cap treatment if you’re interested in reducing the severity and
frequency of the symptoms. If you
like the relentless itch and want to encourage it to stick around, you certainly don’t want a gentle,
shampoo getting in the way.
