Hi there I understand your concern...Several ingredients were found to be safe and effective for self-treatment of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione and coal tar are effective in treating both conditions while sulfur and ketoconzole are effective in treating dandruff only and hydrocortisone is effective for seborrheic dermatitis..consult nearest dermatologist they will do the needful

Hello there....... Many people, especially the elderly, believe that it may be harmful to shampoo frequently. Some avoid washing their scalp for more than a week. However, it is very unlikely that daily shampoos will produce any untoward effects other than removing dandruff..... Consult Dermatologist....
