Cradle cap is a very common condition in infants that presents as greasy, scaly patches on the scalp within the first weeks of life. When removing the scales, it is crucial to prevent spot bleedings to avoid infections.
Homeopathy is invaluable in facilitating the removal of scaling in infants and children with cradle cap without inducing spot bleedings. While cradle cap can last for months (and in some cases years) without treatment but with homeopathy it usually clears within a few weeks of treatment. These medicines are applicable for both children and adults.
