Newborn babies are known for having the softest skin that’s gentle to the touch. But when seborrheic dermatitis (also known as cradle cap) is involved, you might be confused by the lack of suppleness and increase in flakes and dryness on your baby’s head. The good news is that cradle cap is not something to worry about. Cradle cap is a common skin condition and, in most cases, you can expect your baby’s skin to get better within a few weeks. It also doesn’t bother or irritate your baby, even if it looks harsh or uncomfortable. But this doesn’t necessarily mean you should let the cradle cap be. There are simple solutions for reducing flakes and creating a smooth, scale-free scalp for your little one. Let’s take a closer look at the need for a cradle cap comb and how medicated shampoo can help: Can you Comb Out Cradle Cap? In most cases of cradle cap, there’s no need to brush out the scales and flaky skin. When a medicated shampoo works the way it’s supposed to, you don’t have to worry about buying a cradle cap comb to go along with the routine. When it comes to removing cradle cap, the most important tip to remember is leaving alone the large flakes that don’t easily wash away. Picking at scales or using a tool to do it for you can open up the skin and increase the risk of infection. If you can’t comb away the cradle cap without exerting your effort, leave it be. If the scales start to move more freely, you can use a fine toothed comb or toothbrush to gently massage your baby’s head.
