About Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo

How does Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo work?
Cradle cap is a very common condition in newborn babies and young children. It is a form of seborrhoeic dermatitis that is characterised by thick, yellow, greasy, scaly patches on the skin of the scalp. Despite the unpleasant appearance, cradle cap is nothing to worry about, it is temporary, harmless and easy to treat. Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo helps to lift these yellow, scaly patches and leave the scalp clean and clear.

How do I administer Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo?
Repeat two applications of 2-3ml of shampoo at each bath until scalp is clear. When applying, massage it gently but firmly into the affected area, being careful not to scratch the skin. It is recommended that this proceedure is done just once a day. Once the cradle cap has cleared, Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo can be used as daily shampoo to maintain cleanliness.

Can Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo be used on broken skin?
No. If your child's skin is broken or weeping, the baby should see a doctor as there may be an infection.
