Sebizole Shampoo (Ketoconazole)
What is Sebizole Shampoo (Ketoconazole) used for?
Sebizole Shampoo (Ketoconazole) is a medicated shampoo prescribed to treat patients suffering from fungal scalp infections. It operates by slowing or preventing the reproduction of fungus cells allowing the immune system to control or eliminate the infection. This can prevent flaking skin, dry scalp, dandruff, or hair loss. Your doctor may prescribe this medication along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.

Sebizole Shampoo (Ketoconazole) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions and those included with the packaging to get the most effective results from treatment. The medicine is normally used once or twice each week while showering, but your particular instructions will be based on your health condition and the severity of your symptoms.
