    I've been looking at 'remedies' and baby oil is the easiest one at the moment to try.
    Very mild case over about 3 days I've noticed so far.

    Does anyone have any non-medical remedies that worked?

    I tried baby oil about three times, then stopped because I got more on his hair than his scalp and it made his head stink. Don't know what else to do..

    I've used the dentinox shampoo and it worked. Tried the olive oil as well but it came back

    Lo's pediatrician specifically said not to use baby oil.
    I did the olive oil and it worked a treat. Detinox was rubbish on my lo's.

    I've used olive oil once a couple weeks ago and it has slowly come back. It was a mild case then and is even milder now. I'm planning on doing it again this week. Hopefully two treatments is enough but we'll see :)

    Olive oil is better than baby oil as it is natural and unperfumed. Then use a soft bristled brush to brush it away (not a pretty brush... Get a cheap one for that purpose!)
