What is a good translation of the English term "Cradle Cap"?
I usually describe it, but is there a similar term in Spanish?

    Erasmo's answer is totally correct, but it's not the same register as "cradle cap". My Sp>En medical dictionary has "costra láctea", which is much more in line with your term.

    Is "costra láctea" the best term to translate "cradle cap"? I´m translating from english to spanish, the text is about babies´health. Perhaps other suitable options are "dermatitis en la cabeza de los bebés"... I´m not 100% sure. Any thoughts???

    Bienvenid@ al foro juanfevasquez.

    "Costra de leche" = "Dermatitis seborreica pediátrica".

    Being an interpreter = translator I'd have to ask for the term in context. AS it varies between symptoms - the cause and age. Not to mention the demographic area and area of profession. However, I assume you mean in newborns? So C13, in what context? As it also falls within Dermatomyositis. By the way I specialize in medicine in law

    I believe lacanaria (#8) is not talking about cradle cap but about scaly scalp -which can be caused by other than seborrheic dermatitis (see first link below).

    Cradle cap is the common term for infantile seborrheic dermatitis. In Spanish the common equivalent term is costra láctea (as already stated by Axolotl un #3).

    No obstante, en ocasiones se hace referencia a cradle cap en tanto que signos (descamación, costras; scaly scalp) que podrían estar relacionados con dermatitis atópicas o con infecciones como la sarna, entre otras, y no ser expresión de auténticas dermatitis seborreicas (revisar segundo enlace más abajo). En tanto que denominador popular y no médico, esta falta ocasional de correspondencia entre cradle cap y seborrheic dermatitis no es óbice para plantear una traducción diferente a la propuesta, en tanto que costra láctea.


    Scaly scalp is a common problem in the pediatric and adolescent population. The possible causes range from the commonly seen tinea capitis and seborrheic dermatitis to rare systemic diseases such as dermatomyositis and Letterer-Siwe disease.

    Cradle cap is a harmless skin condition that's common in babies. It usually clears up on its own, but there are things you can try to make it better.
    Cradle cap can look like patches of greasy and yellow crusts.
    The crusts can flake and make the skin look red.
    It can appear on other parts of the body, like the eyebrows, nose and nappy area.
    Cradle cap is not itchy or painful and does not bother your baby.
    It's not clear what causes cradle cap. It cannot be caught from another baby.

    La “costra láctea” es el término común para la dermatitis seborreica, un tipo de dermatitis que se presenta en forma de costras en la piel y que no representa ningún daño o peligro para la persona o personita que lo sufre.
    Es una condición que muchos bebés pasan en sus primeros meses de vida. Sin embargo, los padres no debéis preocuparos demasiado, ya que no es una enfermedad contagiosa y mucho menos dolorosa, pudiendo provocar a lo sumo un picor que sí que puede llegar a ser incómodo.
    Este tipo de dermatitis puede surgir en varias partes del cuerpo, siendo las más frecuentes las que aparecen en la frente, en la cara, en la frente, el cuero cabelludo, cejas, nariz y en otras como puede ser detrás de las orejas y las axilas, y en las zonas donde existan pliegues en la piel.
    La costra láctea suele desaparecer por ella misma
