My 3 year old has seborrheic dermatitis or cradle cap. Who knew we would deal with this at 3 years old πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Anyone else have little ones with this at this age? Any tips or advice? I washed his hair with selsom blue tonight and combed it.

Coconut oil.. saturate the scalp, use a toothbrush to gently exfoliate it and loosen the flakes, comb out. Apply shampoo before wetting hair with water to fully wash out the oil. After shampooing rinse with raw apple cider vinegar (the kind with the mother). Do it 3x a week until you see improvement then cut it down to 1x, then as needed :)

I was just looking at my 2 year olds head and wondering if that's what she had! I was also a bit worried about psoriasis because my husband has it but I really hope it’s not that. I know it can be uncomfortable and embarrassing for children if it goes beyond the head

My cousin got it when she was like 8 from not rinsing the soap out if her hair. I suppose it can happen at any time since it's a build up of oils.

Mommy O asks Any of you mommas use the Facebook marketplace to sell things? I made a mistake and sold my dads vintage coffee table 😫 the minute they took off with it I regretted it. I wrote a long message about it asking if he'd agree to give it back (an hour or so later) and said I'd cover his gas coming and of course any inconvenience charges. I feel so bad asking this and never have before but I haven’t heard back so I'm guessing it is gone forever. So sad 😒 and I know it's my own darn fault.
