Ketoconazole works by killing fungi on skin called Malassezia. These fungi occur naturally on the skin, however, people suffering from dandruff seem to have more of Malassezia. It works by interfering with the synthesis of ergosterol, a vital component of fungal cell membranes, thereby weakening it. The weakened cell membrane allows the contents of the fungal cell to leak out resulting in its death.
Ketomac Dandruff Treatment Shampoo is used for the prevention and treatment of dandruff. It treats flaking, scaling, itching, dandruff and also helps to relieve inflammation due to dandruff. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your physician.
