I was just wondering if any of your PA kids got cradle cap when they were an infant?

Hi Jan,
Here is a related link [url="http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum1/HTML/007607.html"]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum1/HTML/007607.html[/url]
I asked about itchy heads and mentioned my ds had cradle cap for a long time as an infant and others mentioned it too.

My DD is TNA and she did have cradle cap for a very long time...even a small patch lingering till she was over age 2. My DS who'll be 2 in July, seems as if he may have a tiny patch that seems to come and go....he is currently only EA and MA, not PA/TNA. I wonder if there is a whole 'atopic' thing going on with that, too.

did he ever! He lost his hair twice due to the cradle cap. At that point we didn't realize what was causing it, once his eczema was diagnosed along with the allergies the cradle cap went away too.

I was just thinking about this because my other DS, without allergies of any kind, did not have cradle cap, ever. He has never even had a rash, so I am wondering if cradle cap is related to all the allergies our kids have?

My PA DS had cradle cap for the first four months but went away completely after MIL told me to put baby oil in his hair overnight, then comb it out. He hasn't had it since.
However, during the past one month, he has been scratching the back of his head like crazy! I do not see any skin changes and am wondering if the scratching is secondary to his newly diagnosed PA. (He does have a mild history of eczema...had small patch on chest that went away within couple of weeks with lotioning when he wwas ~6 months old).

My PA & DA ds had cradle cap past 6 months. Went away for good once we used a dandruff shampoo on him a few times.
My NFA dd also had cradle cap for just about as long (lasted longer behind the ears). The dandruff shampoo did the trick for her too. The one in the blue bottle. She has seasonal eczema that seems to improve as she grows older.

My 3 kids never had cradle cap or diaper rash. I bathed them daily & scrubbed their scalp using a soft baby brush & baby shampoo. Also, it still works well in promoting a good nap & overnight rest.
Whenever my PA dd develops an environmental type rash, I immediately send her to the shower to wash off any allergens on her skin, rinse eyes & clear nasal passages, then put on fresh clothing. Many times, its effective enough that she doesn't have to use Benadryl or Claritin.
