Ketomac 2 %W/V Description

Ketomac shampoo is an anti-dandruff shampoo. It is used for the treatment of dandruff and to control flaking, scaling and itching due to dandruff. Ketomac shampoo contains ketoconazole, an antifungal medicine clinically proven to control dandruff. Ketomac shampoo works by controlling the growth of fungus, which is the root cause of dandruff, along with addressing the symptoms of dandruff.

Other shampoos with ketoconazole as their active ingredient include Nizoral shampoo, Ketocip shampoo, Nizol shampoo, and Exizol shampoo. Ketomac shampoo should be used only under medical supervision, do not use it as a regular shampoo. It is important to wet the hair and scalp thoroughly before applying the shampoo, and then massage it into the scalp and hair for at least three minutes before rinsing it off with water.

Dryness, irritation, or scalp redness are a few possible side effects of using Ketomac shampoo. It's crucial to get medical help if these symptoms worsen or persist. Only if prescribed by a doctor should Ketomac shampoo be used by patients who are pregnant or nursing.

Ketomac shampoo should not be applied to broken or irritated skin, and you should always follow your doctor's or chemist's instructions before using it. If you notice any strange symptoms or side effects, stop using the shampoo right away and call your doctor.
