    It's probably eczema. A common cause of eczema is food allergy, but it can be treated topically-but not healed.

    Goats milk soap and coconut oil help relieve the symptoms for my kids.

    I've looked up some things to do to help it and I've tried some things but it don't seem to help and the more hair they get the harder it is to get it taken care of

    Personally, I figure if it's not making them itch, I don't mess with it, because it feels like a scab getting ripped off it it's picked at. The goats milk soap is the only thing that touches it for my kids, but it doesn't go away until at least two weeks after they stop eating whatever food they are intolerant to.

    When they were babies with very little hair, I would soak their head in coconut oil then give them a bath and brush through their hair with fine tooth comb every way. It'd get most of the scab up for a few days.

      We used olive oil and that worked well.

        My baby girl has it so bad it even in her eyebrows and the sides of her nose. I was a hairstylist for close to 20 years and I have seen and recommended just about every treatment out there and the ONLY one that really works that I've found is coconut oil. Rub it on the cradle cap and let it sit, I normally let it sit a few hours, then take a soft bristle brush, a soft toothbrush works better than a baby hairbrush, and gentle brush the scalp. The cradle cap will literally flake right off. If the hair is short enough you can use a washcloth instead of the brush and that works as well, then give little one a bath to get rid of all the flakey stuff. I did that about three or four times and it was gone. If I remember to put the coconut oil on her scalp and face every night then it doesn't normally come back.
