Common symptoms are a scalp that is: inflamed, red, itchy, flaky and greasy scaling. This can be not only uncomfortable but embarrassing too. Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo contains the active ingredient ketoconazole, which is an antifungal medicine, that works by killing the malassezia yeast that is causing the scalp problem. Simply use Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo every 3 or 4 days for 2-4 weeks to soothe and clear your dandruff, or serbeorrhoeic dermatitis, symptoms. Soon your inflamed, red, itchy, flaky and greasy scaling scalp will be a thing of the past and you’ll have regained control over your problem scalp and dandruff.
What is Nizoral used for?
Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo is used to treat and prevent dandruff and dry or greasy scaling of the scalp (seborrhoeic dermatitis), which is a more severe kind of dandruff.
The shampoo contains ketoconazole, which is an antifungal that targets an increased number of yeasts on the skin called Malassezia. These yeasts occur naturally on everyone’s skin, however, people with dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis seem to have more Malassezia.
The shampoo also treats the inflammation associated with dandruff, relieving scalp redness and itching.
