I have thick patchy layers of dandruff stuck to my scalp which itches I think is either cradle cap or seborrheic derm how can I permanently cure (19yr?

Have it looked at

You may be dealing with a scalp fungus that may require a prescribed oral anti fungal agent.Creams don't penetrate the scalp deep enough to get at the hair root, so it can persist. If not, a good scalp care routine can be set up.

What can I use for cradle cap in babies scalp?

Depends

Cradle_cap
Much of cradle cap id due to retained skin flakes that are not susceptible to the mild ingredients in "tear free" baby shampoos. Active washing with a simple dandruff shampoo will often do the trick, as well as avoiding baby oil on the scalp or other treatments.A soft cuticle brush to help scrub in the shampoo helps,but keep it away from the eyes.

2 month old with cradle cap!!! Baby oil?? Brush it??

Dandruff shampoo

Open-uri20121113-31730-kx294d
Cradle cap builds up when the old skin flakes of the scalp are anchored to the skin by skin oils that act like glue. Normal tear free baby shampoos do not have the chemicals needed to loosen these flakes.Application of dandruff shampoo,keeping it out of the eyes, will gradually help.Gently teasing the flakes loose with a cuticle brush speeds the process.

Does Johnson's Baby Shampoo cause cradle cap or clog pores?

No...

Medication
...but it contains no medication, so sometimes it won't make cradle cap go away, which might lead you to think that it was the cause.

Seborrhea

Cradle_cap
Seborrhea is another name for cradle cap. In addition to the scaly places on the scalp there are little red bumps on the trunk and head. The bumps are very fine and reddish. you could check Google Images for seborrhea to see if it looks like what your child has. talk to your pediatrician about treatments. sometimes a mild steroid such as cortisone is used. sometimes an anti fungal such as Lotrimin

I have a 3 month old baby who has "cradle cap" on his scalp. What's the solution?

Scrub

Baby
Cradle cap in infants is very common. Good vigorous scrubbing of the scalp when shampooing the hair will help resolve the problem.. Also good brushing with a hair brush will help. If it is really bad and nothing seems to help your pediatrician can prescribe a cream to help. It is not usually needed however.

How to get rid of cradle cap on a 7 Month old, I have tried baby oil and brushing it..

Oil +

Baby
Oil can help. Apply,warm with moist heat, allow to sit for a few minutes then brush.Strip the oil and debris completely with a dandruff shampoo.Repeat as needed until the heavier flakes have separated, then just use the dandruff shampoo as needed to maintain. The shampoo is irritating to eyes so avoid letting it get close.
