Nizoral Shampoo 2% (Ketoconazole) Product Information:
Nizoral shampoo 2% contains ketoconazole an antifungal agent that is used to treat infections of the skin by the fungus malassezia (previously called Pityrosporum) that cause dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis and tinea versicolor (pityriasis)
What is Nizoral shampoo used for?
Nizoral shampoo 2% is used to prevent and treat skin infections caused by the fungus malassezia (previously called Pityrosporum) which is a yeast normally found in the skin but can overgrow and cause problems like:
- Seborrhoeic dermatitis - dry or greasy scaling of the scalp and other parts of the body
- Tinea versicolor (pityriasis) - white to brown scaly patches on the body .
Nizoral shampoo 2% relieves the itching and scaling caused by this fungal infection.
How does Nizoral shampoo work?
Nizoral shampoo 2% contain ketoconazole, a synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal agent that specifically kills the fungus by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells. Nizoral shampoo weakens the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out which kills the fungus, preventing the spread infection from spreading and relieving symptoms like itching and scaling caused by the infection.
Treating dandruff with Nizoral Shampoo
Nizoral shampoo 2% contains ketoconazole, a synthetic broad-spectrum
antifungal agent that specifically kills the fungus that causes
dandruff, by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important
component of fungal cell membrane. The fungus malassezia (previously
called Pityrosporum) is a yeast normally found in the skin but can
overgrow and cause problems like dandruff, when the rate at which dead
skin cells are shed and replaced begins to speed up, as a reaction to
irritation by the fungus. Nizoral shampoo stops fungal growth and
therefore relieves itchy scalp and the accumulation of white flakes in
the hair and on the shoulders which are characteristic symptoms of
Nizoral shampoo for hair loss
Nizoral shampoo may be beneficial in men suffering from androgenic
alopecia as there is some evidence to suggest that using Nizoral shampoo
increases hair thickness and decreases hair shedding, as well as
increasing hair follicles in anagen-phase (growth phase).
How should Nizoral shampoo be used?
You should use Nizoral shampoo twice a week for up to 4 weeks, using
normal shampoo in between if you want to wash your hair between
treatments. Then to prevent the condition returning you can use Nizoral
shampoo once every 2-3 weeks. Wet your hair, apply the shampoo to your
wet scalp and work into lather. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes then rinse
thoroughly with water. Avoid contact with the eyes and if shampoo
enters the eyes, rinse with cold water. For treating Tinea versicolor,
apply Nizoral shampoo once daily for a maximum of 5 days.
