About Ketorus Anti Dandruff Shampoo 100 ml

Ketorus Anti Dandruff Shampoo 100 ml belongs to a class of dermatological medication called 'antifungal' primarily used to prevent fungal infections of the skin like seborrheic dermatitis (dry, flaky skin on face, scalp, chest, upper back or ears). Seborrheic dermatitis is a type of dandruff that causes an itchy rash with dry, flaky scales on the skin that contains oil glands such as the scalp, face, back and upper chest.

The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stops the leakage of cell contents.
