Ketoconazole, the active ingredient in Dandrazol Shampoo is an antifungal medicine that is used to treat fungal infections of the skin. Everyone has a type of fungus (yeast) called Malassezia on their skin.
Dandrazol Shampoo works by destroying Malassezia (and other fungi) and can be used to treat and prevent fungal infections on the scalp and body such as dandruff.
This shampoo has a lathering agent which means that not only is dandruff treated, the hair is thoroughly cleaned as well.

Precautions of Use
To prevent a rebound effect after stopping prolonged treatment with topical corticosteroids, it is recommended to continue applying the topical corticosteroid together with Dandrazol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and to subsequently and gradually withdraw the steroid therapy over a period of 2-3 weeks.
Dandruff is associated with increased hair shedding, and this has also been reported, although rarely, with the use of ketoconazole containing shampoos (see Undesirable Effects).
Keep out of the eyes. If the shampoo should get into the eyes, they should be bathed with cold water.
If the scalp has not cleared within 4 weeks, a doctor or pharmacist should be consulted.
