Cradle cap are common in babies. A newborn's skin, which is still immature, has to face a number of external and environmental stresses.
From its very first days of life, a baby's scalp (and/or forehead) may react to these stresses and form small, light brown crusty patches. Cradle cap is not linked to the baby's diet, but rather to an excessive secretion of sebum that forms a protective layer on the skin. Cradle cap can cause itchiness sensations and discomfort in babies while it is forming.
