Adults can also use mild baby shampoo, but specialized shampoos contain ingredients formulated to reduce the flaking associated with an adult’s dandruff and dry scalp. Dandruff shampoos formulated for adults often contain salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, coal tar or zinc pyrithione.
Some babies experience a condition known as cradle cap. This can appear as crusty patches of flaky skin on your baby’s scalp. You may notice some redness around the scales. This normally goes away without any treatment, but you may use a mild baby shampoo and gentle brushing to help lift the flaking skin. Shampooing too frequently can cause excessive dryness. Rubbing a few drops of baby oil over the flaking skin may help soften the scaly skin.
