Ketoconazole (Nizoral) shampoo appears to be a safe and efficacious treatment for infants with cradle cap (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, consensus, usual practice, opinion, disease-oriented evidence, and case series). Limit topical corticosteroids to severe cases because of possible systemic absorption (SOR: C). Overnight application of emollients followed by gentle brushing and washing with baby shampoo helps to remove the scale associated with cradle cap (SOR: C).
