Our daughter is 16 months with NBCIE. She's got some thick scales all through her scalp. We've used baby oil, tea tree oil shampoo and Carmol 10 Shampoo. Is there anything else we can try on a baby this age?

Or baby has ?lamellar and we have been using a cradle cap care kit from WalMart (very inexpensive) but quite effective. We rub her head with baby oil 1/2 hour pre-bath and then use the mitt and comb as instructed during the bath. Just lately, I tried T/Gel shampoo which worked really well as well. Casey is 10 months old.

Good luck!
Mom to Casey born Feb 17/08(?LI/CIE), Sara born Feb 18/06, and Kaitlyn born July 2/03
Casey has been tested positive for a genetic mutation in the ICHTHYIN gene (which is indicative of either LI or CIE)
