It is believed that dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis are associated with an excessive presence of a specific yeast that normally lives on our bodies but which, in some people, increases in number and leads to these problems. The use of SEBIZOLE SHAMPOO containing ketoconazole may help to control dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis. Ketoconazole is a powerful antifungal agent that inhibits the growth of various fungi and yeasts.
