If you baby’s scalp is red and swollen and you suspect they have infected cradle cap, it is important to take them to your family doctor. If infected, your doctor will be able to prescribe an antifungal cream or shampoo that will usually be able to clear any rash present. They may also prescribe antibiotics.
