  1. Hi and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.From symptoms shared by you it seems your baby is having infantile seborrheic dermatitis.It is a harmless condition.It begins in first few months of life and clears on its own in six to twelve months.It occurs due to overstimulation of babys oil glands and is called cradle cap.Gently massage the scalp with fingers or a soft brush to loosen the scales.Shampoo at least once a day.After shampooing gently brush baby's scalp with soft brush.You may rub small amount of olive or almond oil for fifteen minutes.Then wash off carefully with shampoo.Dont leave oil on scalp.Try doing this.If problem is severe or persists see a doctor.Hope this helps.Keep us posted.Take care and good day!
