About SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML

SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML is a dermatological combination medication primarily used to treat fungal skin infections, such as seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) and tenia versicolor (a small patch of discoloured skin). Fungal infection occurs when a fungus invades and affects the tissue on the skin. Symptoms of a fungal infection include a scaly rash, discoloured skin which is very itchy in nature. Some of the common fungal skin infections include ringworm of the body (tinea corporis), athlete's foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris), ringworm of the scalp (tinea capitis), discoloured skin patch (tinea versicolor), candida infection (cutaneous candidiasis) and nail fungal infection (onychomycosis). 

SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML is composed of two medicines: 'Clotrimazole' (antifungal) and 'Selenium sulfide' (anti-infective). Clotrimazole works by stopping the growth of the fungi cell by causing damage and leaking out all content, thereby killing it. On the other hand, Selenium sulphide is an anti-infective agent that relieves itching and flaking of the scalp and removes the dry, scaly particles. Besides this, it also reduces skin damage due to infection by decreases flaking or scaling of the skin, which helps in new skin formation. Together SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML treats various fungal skin infections, yeast infections and dandruff from the scalp. 

SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML is available in the form of lotion/suspension, foam and shampoo. Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose that suits your infection. SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML is for topical (for skin use) only. If the medicine gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, vagina or open cut wound immediately rinse with cold water. SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML has common side effects like itching, dryness, redness, swelling, and burning sensation at the application site. However, these side effects are mild and temporary and go off after a few times. However, if these side effects persist, contact doctor or skin specialist. 

Let your doctor know if you have any allergic reactions to Clotrimazole, Selenium sulfide or other antifungal medications. Do not put dressing or bandage on the affected area since it increases the risk of side effects. Please check with your doctor before using SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML if you have any liver, kidney diseases and other skin infections. Selenium Sulfide in SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML may harm the foetus when applied to a pregnant woman's body surfaces and affect reproduction capacity. Hence it is advised that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult the doctor before starting SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML. If nursing mothers apply SELSUN SHAMPOO 60ML to their breasts for treatment, it is recommended to wash the affected area thoroughly before breastfeeding the baby.
