Cradle cap in 4 month oldHello,
My daughter is 4 motnths old and suffers from cradle cap. It appears to be itchy because she scratches her head quite a lot even though I try and keep her nails as short as possible.
She also developed 3 yellos crusts on the right side of her face which have gone now.
As a very young baby she developed a fungal infection under her arms and behind her ears. This has also cleared up. I used a calendua nappy creme/moisturiser for both.
She is a light sleeper and wakes up (she makes noises which get louder and louder but is not fully awake) often not wanting to be fed but to be carried at night. She sleeps with her hands above her head. She wants to be carried all the time and is easily bored. She has a pitiful cry and often gets a mild form of nappy rash. Her stools are well-formed. She cat naps during the day. I gave her sulphur (c200) and clcium carbonicum (c30) but this doesn't seem to have helped. Could someone please suggest any other remedies?
