What is Seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff?
Seborrhoeic dermatitis is a common skin disease which can
often look unpleasant, red and sometimes scaly. When white
scales are present it is called Dandruff.
Most skin specialists agree that dandruff is due to a yeast called
Pityrosporum. The yeast normally lives on our bodies but in
some people increases in number and leads to disease. The over
production of sebum, the oily substance on our skin, may be an
added factor as sebum is probably what the yeast lives on.
Many anti-dandruff shampoos act by changing the pH of the
scalp and thus changing the ability of the yeast to survive.
Sebizole Shampoo, through its active ingredient, ketoconazole,
acts directly on the yeast by inhibiting its growth.
There is no cure for seborrhoeic dermatitis or dandruff, but it
may be controlled. The use of medicated shampoos such as
Sebizole Shampoo may help to control the dandruff when
shampoo is applied once or twice a week.

PRECAUTIONS: Irritation may occur when Sebizole Shampoo is
used immediately after prolonged treatment with topical
corticosteroids on the same area. If a reaction suggesting
sensitivity or chemical irritation should occur use of Sebizole
Shampoo should be discontinued. Avoid contact with the eyes.
Use in pregnancy: ketoconazole shampoo does not produce
detectable blood levels after topical application. However, due to
the teratogenic nature of the active ingredient in rats when
given orally, it should only be used in pregnant or lactating
women if in the judgement of the treating doctor the expected
benefits outweigh the potential risk.
ADVERSE REACTION: Adverse events include allergic reaction,
itchy, irritated or greasy skin and scalp, rash and erythema. As
with other shampoos, a local burning sensation oiliness and
dryness of the hair and scalp have also been reported.
