Dealing with cradle cap

When Yameen was around 2 months old I discovered that he had these patchy yellow like scales all over his scalp. I had recognized it as cradle cap because my eldest daughter Zia also had it when she was a baby. Anyway, this was around the same time his baby eczema started. He didn’t seem all too bothered with it at the beginning and the paediatrician said that it won’t affect him in any way.
