I've used bath oil and also sweet almond oil. massage into scalp, leave overnight and gently comb in the morning.
I found the sweet almond oil to work best.

Wow, thanks so much for the quick replies. I'll try using oil and wiping it out with a face washer first. If that fails, I'll try combing. Then other methods from there.
It's awful stuff, people ask to see my baby, and they actually recoil when they see her flaky face. She's beautiful, but people only see the flakes. Even dh thinks she looks like she has fish scales.

Vaseline worked for DS. The oil didn't work for us- would improve it but it kept getting worse again. 2 treatments of Vaseline and it went for good. Rub in Vaseline and leave overnight, wash next day. I think I got this from robin barker's baby love book.

Alpha Keri lotion cleared up my LO's cradle cap real quick. I just rubbed it generously all over her head/face and it has made a huge difference. (Gives her a pretty awesome hair-do for a few hours too until it soaks in LOL).

I used olive oil on DS every day and especially after a bath, he only had it minor though. I hope you find something that works quickly

I would use oil (olive, mineral, whatever you've got handy, lather on overnight with a hat on then comb the gunk out) to get rid of the worst of it, then MooGoo scalp cream to keep it away. Beautiful stuff

My ds1 had terrible cradle cap when he was born, I tried the olive oil, ointments, creams everything! But in the end curash 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner is what worked. I hope this helps

My dd had it really bad. Someone told me to try athlete's foot cream cause it's a fungus.
2 days later I was able to scrape (I know, gross) the whole lot off with my fingers.
She's never had it since.
