Loprox Shampoo Description

An itchy scalp and flaky skin may be more than just dandruff or from the dry air; you may have seborrheic dermatitis or scalp psoriasis. Talk to your doctor about Loprox Shampoo with 1% Ciclopirox for calming the itch and reducing the patches of dry skin that flake off onto your clothing. These flaky scales can occur on your ears, face, chest and back as well as other parts of your body.

Although there is little known about what causes seborrheic dermatitis, it’s believed that a fungus called Malassezia furfur may have a role to play in it. This fungus, or yeast, is part of the natural flora that lives on our skin and it may get out of hand in the areas that have higher numbers of sebaceous glands. This means wherever we can grow hair, there could be an increased presence of Malassezia furfur.

Reduces Inflammation and Weakens Fungal Cell Membranes

Loprox Shampoo is absorbed into the skin cells and interferes with certain essential compounds that the fungus needs to build a strong cell membrane. By altering the permeability of the fungal cell membranes, contents will leak out and other substances seep in so the fungus is unable to grow and multiply. Loprox Shampoo also exhibits anti-inflammatory actions by reducing the production of the chemicals that cause inflammation so you have less redness to the affected skin areas.

Conditions Treated by Loprox Shampoo

Scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis may have the same annoying itchy, red, flaky skin, but there is a difference. The scales of scalp psoriasis are silvery and more powder-like while seborrheic dermatitis scales are greasy and yellowish. Neither scalp psoriasis nor seborrheic dermatitis is contagious or curable, but there are treatments that can bring the symptoms under control. Don’t be embarrassed to wear dark clothing! Loprox Shampoo will help your scalp and your appearance so you are more confident that people are looking at you and not your flakes.

Before You Apply Loprox Shampoo

Ask your doctor whether it is safe to use Loprox Shampoo if you are pregnant, may become pregnant during treatment, or are breast feeding. To determine if Loprox Shampoo is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx medications you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Loprox Shampoo Proper Use

Apply Loprox Shampoo as directed and for the time period recommended even if the condition has already improved. If your symptoms have not improved or have worsened, revisit your doctor to reassess the affected areas. Do not keep Loprox Shampoo with your regular hair products so no one else uses it by mistake.
