Infant Cradle Cap & Baby Eczema FAQ
 

Cradle Cap Treatment: Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Cradle Cap?

Cradle Cap, or dermatitis as it is sometimes called, is a group of skin conditions which can affect all age groups. In the US, up to one fifth of all children of school age have Cradle Cap, along with about one in twelve of the adult population. The severity of the disease can vary. In mild forms the skin is dry, hot and itchy, whilst in more severe forms the skin can become broken, raw and bleeding. Although it can sometimes look unpleasant, Cradle Cap is not contagious. With treatment the inflammation of Cradle Cap can be reduced, though the skin will always be sensitive to flare-ups and need extra care.

What are the types of Cradle Cap?

There are several different types of Cradle Cap, many of which look similar but have very different causes and treatments. The first step in effective treatment of Cradle Cap is a correct diagnosis. It is very important to see a general practitioner in the first instance, who may make a referral to a specialist dermatologist for further diagnosis and treatment.

  • Infantile seborrhoeic Cradle Cap (baby Cradle Cap) - A common condition affecting babies under one year old, the exact cause of which is unknown. Also referred to as cradle cap, it usually starts on the scalp or the nappy area and quickly spreads. Although this type of Cradle Cap looks unpleasant, it is not sore or itchy and does not cause the baby to feel uncomfortable or unwell. Normally this type of Cradle Cap will clear in just a few months, though the use of moisturizing creams and bath oils can help to speed this along.
     

  • Atopic Cradle Cap - Atopic Cradle Cap is the commonest form of Cradle Cap and is closely linked with asthma and hayfever. It can affect both children and adults, usually running in families. One of the most common symptoms of atopic Cradle Cap is its itchiness (or pruritis), which can be almost unbearable. Other symptoms include overall dryness of the skin, redness and inflammation. Constant scratching can also cause the skin to split, leaving it prone to infection. In infected Cradle Cap the skin may crack and weep (‘wet’ Cradle Cap). Treatments include emollients to maintain skin hydration and steroids to reduce inflammation.
     

  • Allergic contact dermatitis - Develops when the body’s immune system reacts against a substance in contact with the skin. The allergic reaction often develops over a period of time through repeated contact with the substance. For example, an allergic reaction may occur to nickel, which is often found in earrings, belt buckles and jeans buttons. Reactions can also occur after contact with other substances such as perfumes and rubber. In order to prevent repeated reactions it is best to prevent contact with anything that you know causes a rash.
     

  • Irritant contact dermatitis - This is a type of Cradle Cap caused by frequent contact with everyday substances, such as detergents and chemicals, which are irritating to the skin. It most commonly occurs on the hands of adults and can be prevented by avoiding the irritants and keeping the skin moisturized.
     

  • Adult seborrhoeic Cradle Cap - Characteristically affects adults between the ages of 20 and 40. It is usually seen on the scalp as mild dandruff, but can spread to the face, ears and chest. The skin becomes red, inflamed and starts to flake. The condition is believed to be caused by a yeast growth. If the condition becomes infected, treatment with an anti-fungal cream may be necessary.

  • Varicose eczema - Varicose eczema affects the lower legs of those in their middle to late years, being caused by poor circulation. Commonly the skin around the ankles is affected, becoming speckled, itchy and inflamed. Treatment is with emollients and steroid creams. If left untreated, the skin can break down, resulting in an ulcer.
     

  • Discoid eczema - Is usually found in adults and appears suddenly as a few coin shaped areas of red skin, normally on the trunk or lower legs. They become itchy and can weep fluid. Usually discoid eczema is treated with emollients (and steroid creams if necessary).
