Cradle cap refers to scaly, crusty, greasy patches that appear on the scalp of babies. It is seen mainly in the initial two months of a child’s life and tends to clear up within a few months. Cradle cap is a harmless, non-contagious, painless and non-itchy condition. It is neither of allergic origin nor a bacterial infection and isn’t caused by poor hygiene. Cradle cap usually arises as a result of excessive production of oil/sebum production in the oil glands and hair follicles. Another factor is a reaction to the fungus Malassezia that grows on the skin. Homeopathic medicines for cradle cap are very mild and do not have any side effects. They can be safely used for infants. Kali Sulph, Graphites, and Natrum Mur are the top homeopathic medicines for cradle cap.
