About Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo is an effective cradle cap treatment for your baby's scalp. While cradle cap may be both common and harmless, the crusty rash it produces can be unsightly. If you‘ve noticed red, flakey or crusty skin on your baby’s head, face or nappy area, it may be time to seek treatment. Dentinox Shampoo is a gentle, water-based treatment that can help to clear your baby’s cradle cap, and its continued use can help in preventing the skin condition from returning.
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo Information
What is Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo used for?
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo is used to treat the symptoms of cradle cap, a common skin condition affecting babies. The condition causes a rash to form, leading to flaky scales covering the affected area.
Though the cause isn’t fully understood, we do know that cradle cap is not contagious or painful, nor is it caused by poor hygiene or allergies. If your baby is showing symptoms of cradle cap, Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo can be used to gently remove the flaky rash, leaving the affected area looking clean and healthy.
How does Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo work?
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo uses two specialised cleansing surfactants: sodium lauryl ether sulpho-succinate and sodium lauryl ether sulphate. These ingredients are proven to be effective in the treatment of cradle cap, while still being mild and gentle enough for use on your baby’s hair and scalp. This cradle cap shampoo works to remove the flaky, dry skin caused by the condition, and is suitable for daily use.
How do I use Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo?
To treat cradle cap, dampen your baby’s head with warm water and gently massage about half a teaspoonful of Dentinox Shampoo onto the entire scalp. For the best results, use the shampoo on its own, as use in combination with other shampoos may cause your baby’s scalp to become dry.
You can use this shampoo until the cradle cap completely clears up. Since Dentinox contains mild and gentle ingredients, you can also use it as a general shampoo, even after your baby’s cradle cap has completely healed.
Alternatives to Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo
As an alternative to using a specialised cradle cap shampoo, a soft-bristled brush can help to dislodge and remove any stubborn flakes left by cradle cap. Just remember to be as gentle as possible and avoid excess massaging, as rough treatment of the area may aggravate the condition and could even cause an infection.
If you do decide to brush the scales away, be sure to moisturise the area afterwards. A gentle emollient cream will work to prevent the rash from returning. If the condition is proving difficult to treat, a healthcare professional may recommend a mild corticosteroid cream.
