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

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 of 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.

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 treatment. 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.
