Ketoconazole Shampoo

Hair loss treatments such as dutasteride work more effectively if the scalp is clean. Ketoconazole Shampoo can be used along with these treatments to maximise hair regrowth.

Dandruff can be very annoying due to the dry scalp and the itching. It can also be embarrassing due to the flakes. Dandruff is caused by a type of fungus on the scalp as are several other similar problems. Many people with them have tried various over the counter products to no avail. If that is the case for you talk to your doctor as you may need something stronger such as Ketoconazole Shampoo.

This is a medicated type of anti fungal shampoo that you can use. It has Ketocanazole in it which helps the scalp by altering the current pH level of it. When that is out of balance that is when itching and flakes can occur. This shampoo is very strong though so you have to be careful with how you use it.

Your doctor may prescribe it for 2 weeks or 4 weeks depending on the severity of your condition. You want to use it every 3 or 4 days though and not every day. Use a very sensitive type of shampoo those other days, one without any forms of medication in them. If you try to use Ketoconazole Shampoo daily you will cause more problems for your scalp than help so follow the directions.

To use it, wet your hair as you normally would and then apply it. You want to keep it on the scalp and hair for a period of at least 3 minutes but not longer than 5 minutes. Most people donít have any concerns when they use Ketoconazole Shampoo but there are side effects to take note of. The scalp may become tender at first so rub it in easily.

Make sure the bathroom is well ventilated to prevent nausea or dizziness. Some people experience headaches and constipation with the use of Ketoconazole Shampoo initially but it will go away soon. It is best to avoid drinking any type of alcohol while using this medicated shampoo. Those that have liver problems arenít going to be able to use it.

There are various medications that wonít interact well with the use of Ketoconazole Shampoo. This is why your doctor should be told about all products you use including those that you can buy over the counter. Women who are nursing shouldnít use it because it can be past to the baby through breast milk. It isnít recommended for pregnant woman to use it either.
