The reason for the formation of “buffalo dung” on the scalp of children

Buffalo shit is formed due to overactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles. When sebum secretion combines with a large amount of dead cells, it will hinder the peeling process of these cells and form plaques on the scalp, often called “buffalo dung”.

Usually buffalo shit will go away after a few months if it is mild and 1-2 years if it is severe. But there are some cases of children with superinfection when buffalo dung not only spreads and thickens on the scalp but also pulls down the face and neck area, sometimes causing festering.

Buffalo shit not only causes unsightly babies, especially girls, but it also makes them itchy, uncomfortable, and fussy. If superinfected with streptococcus, staphylococcus, the buffalo poop area has inflammation, watery, impetigo causing pain and danger to the baby’s health.

Thus, the cleaning will save time and effort and the baby will be more comfortable because it is less affected by the disease.

How to clean buffalo dung safely for children with fresh lemon and coconut oil

For the treatment to be effective, the mother should cut the baby’s hair very short.

– Before each bath, the mother uses 1 lemon to squeeze the water and mix it with warm water to wash the baby’s hair. Shampooing time should be longer than usual so that the buffalo shit can absorb the soft water. Then wash your baby with warm water again.

– Let the baby sit in the basin of bath water and apply coconut oil on the buffalo dung. The mother continued to bathe the baby, then took a comb to gently brush to remove each layer of buffalo shit on the head, then washed the baby’s head again.
Persevering for the baby for about a week, the mother will see the buffalo shit gradually disappear and completely heal.
