About cradle cap

1. What Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo is and what it is used for
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo contains the active ingredients sodium lauryl ether
sulpho-succinate and sodium lauryl ether sulphate, which belong to a group of medicines
called cleansing surfactants. These cleansers have been shown to be effective in the treatment
of cradle cap.
Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo is for the treatment of infant cradle cap,
and general care of infant scalp and hair.
This shampoo is suitable to use from birth onwards.

2. Before you use Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo
You should not use Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo:
• If your baby is allergic (hypersensitive) to sodium lauryl ether sulpho-succinate,
sodium lauryl ether sulphate, or any other ingredients of Dentinox Cradle Cap
Treatment Shampoo (see list of ingredients in Section 6).
• If the skin on the scalp is broken.
• If there are signs of scalp infection (redness, blistering, oozing, warmth).
Take special care with Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo.
• Avoid contact with the eyes.
• Do not use if your baby has any signs of eczema on the scalp such as redness, swelling,
blistering, dryness or cracking of the skin
• Test on a small area of the infant’s skin the day before you intend to use the shampoo.
Do not use if any signs of redness or skin irritation occur within 24 hours of the test.
• Do not use other shampoos at the same time as this can make the skin very dry.

3. How you use Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo
Dosage: Use two shampoo applications of between 2-3 ml. Repeat at each bath-time until the
scalp is clear. Then use as necessary.
Wet the baby’s head with warm water. Squeeze a little Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo
onto your palm and massage gently but firmly over the entire scalp. Do not be afraid of touching
the soft area of the scalp (fontanelle). Avoid excess massaging and hot water. Rinse off and repeat
application. Rinse well and gently dry. Do not try to remove the cradle cap by picking at it.
If you use more Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo than you should:
• Too much Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo on the skin will not be a problem.
The shampoo is not poisonous if it is accidentally swallowed.
If the product gets into the eyes
The product, or the lather, may cause irritation if it gets into the eyes. If this happens, rinse with
plenty of clean water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye.
If irritation persists, contact a doctor or pharmacist.
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, speak to your health visitor,
pharmacist or doctor.

4. Possible side effects
Like all medicines, Dentinox Cradle Cap Treatment Shampoo can cause side effects, although
these do not affect everybody.
• There have been reports of scalp redness, skin irritation, inflammation and dryness.
• If you notice any signs of skin sensitivity (allergy), stop using the product and seek medical advice.
Hair loss can occur when hair stuck in the cradle cap falls off with the patch. This is normal and
the hair will grow back naturally. If any of the side effects become serious, or if you notice any
side effects not listed in this leaflet, please speak to your health visitor, pharmacist or doctor.
