Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy shampoo and body wash is a kid friendly medicated shampoo and body wash for relief of skin and scalp itching, irritation, redness, flaking, and scaling associated with seborrheic dermatitis. Many people see the picture of this infant and think dandruff, but this is actually called seborrheic dermatitis.

Adults who suffer from it have an abundance of treatment options. Babies and small children, on the other hand, tend to have more sensitive skin that can react poorly to the harsh chemicals found in adult products. When treating children, parents and doctors tend to scrutinize the ingredients used in the products more carefully. Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash for seborrheic dermatitis is a clinically tested dermatitis shampoo developed by a licensed pediatrician and made with FDA-approved active ingredient pyrithione zinc.

Medicated Shampoo and Body Wash for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Pediatricians regularly recommend adult dandruff shampoos for this condition because they contain an FDA approved active ingredient to control seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff. Until now there was no children’s seborrheic dermatitis shampoo and body wash.

Practicing Houston Pediatrician Dr. Eddie Valenzuela was tired of prescribing adult shampoos for children. He understood that parents were not just looking for how to treat seborrheic dermatitis, but how to do so safely for their young babies. He developed two types of products — a medicated body wash for seborrheic dermatitis flare-ups, and a gentle daily shampoo and body wash to help kids with eczema. Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash is the only Cradle Cap shampoo specially formulated for children of all ages, particularly babies.

Dr. Eddie’s Happy Cappy Seborrheic Dermatitis body wash and Shampoo is made to the highest safety standards and utilizes 95% natural ingredients along with FDA approved active ingredient, Zinc Pyrithione while avoiding the use of ingredients like fragrances and sulfates.

Easing Seborrheic Dermatitis symptoms

When seborrheic dermatitis presents in babies, the condition is also known as “cradle cap” or “pityriasis capitis” due to the appearance of scaling that extends from the baby’s scalp down to the eyebrows, much like a cap.  This irritating condition in newborns affects roughly 42% of babies. It most commonly arises during the first three months of life but can reoccur during adolescence and into adulthood, especially during periods of sleeplessness or stress.

The primary symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis include:

  • Flaking of the skin
  • White or yellowish scales
  • Oily and dry patches
  • Redness and inflammation of the scalp
  • Hairlessness where scaling occurs

Incidence of seborrheic flaking is most common to the scalp, but may also affect the forehead, face, behind the ears, in the diaper area, in the armpits, or along other skin folds and creases where oil accumulates. This excessive oil production is what causes the skin to shed and the red irritation. The precise cause is yet unknown, though various studies have linked the condition to everything from hormone levels, nutritional deficits, and neurogenic factors, to fungal infections, and overactive sebum production.

Treatments of Seborrheic Dermatitis

Several OTC solutions have been very effective in treating seborrheic dermatitis in adults.  However , most pediatricians consider many of these common treatments too harsh for a baby’s young skin.

With its well documented antifungal and antibacterial properties, the pyrithione zinc compound is among the most common active ingredients used in dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis treatments and is the active ingredient (0.95%) used in Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash.  Our Body wash for Seborrheic Dermatitis is gentle enough to use on children of all ages daily but should be used at least twice a week for best results.
