How To Get Rid of Cradle Cap on Eyebrows: What You Need To Know

By Dr. Eddie Valenzuela

Cradle cap, more formally known as seborrheic dermatitis, is a condition that can be uncomfortable and unsightly, particularly when symptoms emerge for the first time. This form of stubborn dandruff on the scalp is very common in young children, though it can strike people of any age.

Usually referred to as “cradle cap” when it appears in babies, this condition generally affects the scalp, but it can also be present on other parts of the body as well, especially oily areas around hair follicles—like eyebrows. If you’re wondering how to get rid of cradle cap on eyebrows, there are luckily a few ways you can treat this yourself.

How To Treat Cradle Cap in Eyebrows

If your baby develops symptoms of cradle cap on their eyebrows, talk to your pediatrician about using a medicated shampoo. The active ingredient in medicated shampoos, pyrithione zinc, has been shown to be successful in treating cradle cap on eyebrows (as well as the scalp and other body parts) and is the best way to keep cradle cap on eyebrows under control.

Though everyone responds to medicated shampoos slightly differently, most people will see an improvement after a few washes, and a significant improvement in about a month. Your doctor will be able to tell you for sure if the medicated shampoo is the right choice for you, and can answer any questions you have about how it might affect your baby in particular.

You also can try using a soft-bristled brush, often called a cradle cap brush, to gently brush the dry skin off of your baby’s face or scalp, though you don’t actually need to brush off the flakes.

Can I put coconut oil on the cradle cap?

According to the internet, coconut oil might be the best option to treat cradle caps, but coconut oil can be more harmful than helpful in treating cradle caps. It creates an environment favorable for the growth of Malassezia fungus, which causes cradle caps in babies.
