Nizoral dandruff shampoo is an antifungal shampoo that contains an active ingredient called Ketoconazole. It can help treat a dry, red itchy scalp caused by dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis affecting the scalp.
Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo is used as a treatment for the type of dandruff that is caused by a fungus. Nizoral dandruff shampoo contains an active ingredient called Ketoconazole, which belongs to a class of medication known as antifungals.
Antifungals like Ketoconazole cause holes to appear in the cell membranes of fungi and yeast, which causes the essential constituents of their cells to leak out, thereby killing them. It is effective in killing Pityrosporum yeast that causes a red, dry, flaky and itchy scalp.
Nizoral dandruff shampoo contains an active ingredient called Ketoconazole which actively combats the fungus that causes dandruff, and it shows its effectiveness from the very first wash.
This makes sure you get relief from itching and flaking.
Nizoral dandruff shampoo is safe for use by pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.
