What is Alphosyl 2 in 1?

Alphosyl 2 in 1 is a medicated shampoo which can be used to treat dandruff and various scalp conditions which can create dandruff such as psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and eczema. This shampoo can also treat any itchiness and scaling caused by any of these particular scalp conditions.

Dandruff is a skin condition which many people experience and it can be caused by all kinds of conditions which makes the skin on your scalp dry and itchy. By using a medicated shampoo such as Alphosyl, you can directly treat the cause of your dry scalp and vastly reduce the amount of skin flakes associated with dandruff.

How does Alphosyl 2 in 1 work?

The active ingredient in Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo is alcoholic extract of coal tar. It is an anti-scaling agent which helps to break down keratin (a substance which makes up part of the structure of your skin). By breaking down the keratin, you also remove dandruff in the process. The active ingredient in this shampoo essentially restores the skin structure by slowing down the process of cell production. This should lead to healthier skin on your scalp that’s less dry and less prone to creating itchiness or skin flakes associated with dandruff.

Who can and cannot use Alphosyl 2 in 1?

If you are looking for a way to treat dandruff, an itchy scalp or any other condition which affects the scalp, then you can consider using Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo for a course of treatment. However, certain issues you may have with your skin or other health circumstances may mean it’s unsuitable to use Alphosyl or precautions will be required.

For instance, Alphosyl 2 in 1 should not be used on skin which is infected, open or damaged. This shampoo is also not suitable for treating sore or acute pustular psoriasis (which creates red skin covered by pus filled blisters). If you have any of these issues on your scalp, then avoid using Alphosyl 2 in 1 and consult your doctor or local pharmacist about alternative treatments. You should speak to one or the other before you start using this shampoo if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you do end up using Alphosyl 2 in 1 while in a phase of breastfeeding, then it’s important to ensure you wash off all traces of shampoo after use.

If you intend to buy this product so that a child can use it, then proceed with caution if that child is under 12 and only let them be treated with it on advice from a doctor or pharmacist.

Instructions for using Alphosyl 2 in 1

Alphosyl 2 in 1 can be used once or twice a week for four weeks’ maximum. Make sure you wet your hair thoroughly before applying the shampoo. During a shower, use enough shampoo to cover your scalp, hair and adjacent areas (if also affected by the condition affecting you). Massage the shampoo into your scalp and (if necessary) adjacent areas well using your fingertips. Then rinse your hair thoroughly. Repeat these steps each time it’s appropriate to use this shampoo while showering.

Alphosyl 2 in 1 Shampoo should be in contact with your scalp for a total time of three to five minutes over the two applications. If you forget to use Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo, simply apply it on the next day instead.

Can Alphosyl 2 in 1 cause side effects?

As is the case with any other product which contains medication, there is the possibility that Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo could cause side effects. However, it is overall unlikely that any will occur if you use this shampoo in the correct manner. The chances of experiencing side effects increase if you use more of this shampoo than necessary while showering, or apply it more frequently than recommended. Bear in mind that symptoms affecting your scalp and hair may be related to your condition rather than this shampoo. However, if your symptoms get worse after you start using Alphosyl 2 in 1, then stop using this product and speak to a doctor for advice.

Does Alphosyl 2 in 1 require a prescription?

It does not. Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo can be purchased online as an add to cart product without requiring a prescription. It is also possible you could find this product in a local shop or pharmacy. Here at Doctor-4-U, this shampoo can quickly and easily be bought from us, and we can then swiftly deliver to your home or another address that’s convenient for you.
