What is Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and how does it work?

As the name suggests, Nizoral shampoo combats dandruff which is a condition that can cause embarrassment for a lot of people, not to mention, itching, redness, and dryness of the scalp that is associated with this condition. Those who have dandruff have been found to have more yeast known as Malassezia on the skin, and the active ingredient in Nizoral is ketoconazole which is an antifungal medicine that helps to rectify this imbalance of yeast. It does this by destroying the essential components of the fungi and yeasts, particularly a substance known as ergosterol which is essential to its survival, without this, the fungi and yeasts eventually die and the infection is cleared.

Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo also treats seborrheic dermatitis, a common cause of dandruff. It also soothes the itching, redness, and inflammation that often occurs with seborrheic dermatitis.
