CRADLE CRAP AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

Cradle crap is a self-limiting disease and usually goes on its own. Ayurvedic management of the disease recommends right diet and lifestyle for mother and child along with use of herbs to strengthen the hair health. 

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Breastfeeding mother should avoid consuming foods prepared out of maida, curds, and oily foods.
  • Eating healthy food during pregnancy helps prevent cradle crap. Include fennel seeds, cumins, garlic, turmeric, ginger and pepper in the diet.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • To loosen the scales formed on the scalp, massage with baby oil, olive oil or petroleum jelly
  • Gently massage the affected area and brush off the loosened scales, later washing them away with a shampoo.
  • A paste of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) on the scalp for ten minutes helps in removing the scales.
