Cradle Cap

This is a Q for mommy's who already have a LO.  My 2 month old has cradle cap, which in my opinion has gotten bad.  It is yellow & scaly.  I have used baby oil & tried brushing the scales off but it is not working well.  It has gotten rid of a lot of it but not all & i have done it multiple days.  It seems to be irritating her head too.  Any suggestions?

Getting rid of cradle cap is not an overnight process, it takes a while just keep doing what your doing keep sheets clean, baby oil, brushing, as soon as she spits up get her out of it and wash head with soap and warm water. It'll go away soon.

You have to be cautious because it could be eczema. I've read a topic where it was said that eczema could be mistaken for a cradle cap. A medician examination may be needed, I suppose.
