Uses of Ketoconazole Dandruff Shampoo
Psoriasis: Ketoconazole is a common treatment for psoriasis and other skin inflammatory skin diseases that causes skin flaking, skin plaques and redness.
Tinea Infections: The shampoo also treats Tinea capitis and Versicolor. It is a ring-worm like a fungal infection that affects the scalp. Tinea versicolor is a skin infection caused by an overgrowth of a type of yeast that naturally lives in your skin.
Hair Loss: While Ketoconazole is used to treat infections like seborrheic dermatitis, there is unscientific evidence that it may help promote hair growth or reduce hair loss.
