Selsun is a medicated shampoo used to treat dandruff and seborrhea dermatitis. It works against dandruff in two ways; by reducing the greasiness of the scalp and by slowing down the growth of the layer of skin cells on the scalp that cause dandruff.
Selsun contains the antifungal selenium sulphide which is used primarily to control scalp disorders. It kills the fungi that cause the inflammation, flaking and itching associated with such conditions. Selenium sulphide can also be used to treat Pityriasis Versicolor, a fungal infection of the skin.
Selsun Shampoo is one of the most popular anti-dandruff treatments available and is widely used to help treat the condition and soothe the symptoms commonly associated with dandruff.
