I am using Selsun blue for dandruff and it is not working, when I stopped using it dandruff is back, people tell me leave it on hair for 5 min, I dont?
If I have a mild case of dandruff, how often should I use Selsun Blue? Should I be washing my hair everyday and alternating with regular shampoo?
Washing every day will help.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex.

I use selsun blue anti-dandruff shampoo with 1% selenium sulfide. I got some in my eyes, washed it out as best i could. Still burns? Will i go blind?
Won't blind you: It'll heal itself. You're almost a grown man and need to get fears that you must surely recognize as unrealistic under control. You list "anxiety" as a problem -- this would be a great time talk with a therapist or counselor about why you have such fears as this and what you can do to be happier as life goes on. ...Read more

DANDRUFF & ITCHINESS:
HAVE YOU SEEN A DERMATOLOGIST YET?

I DO NOT KNOW HOW OFTEN YOU SHAMPOO BUT I WOULD GUESS THAT IT IS NOT TOO OFTEN.
I RECOMMEND THAT YOU SHAMPOO DAILY -- YES, DAILY -- FOR THE NEXT WEEK AND THEN AFTER THAT, CUT IT DOWN TO THREE TIMES A WEEK.
TRY AN OVER-THE-COUNTER TAR SHAMPOO.
IF IT'S NOT BETTER PLEASE SEE A DERMATOLOGIST.
BEST LUCK. ...Read more
My dandruff has been resolved by using selsun blue to great extent? Now please tell me some anti-hairfall shampoo or medication safe to use, please
Itchy dry to oily scalp. Already using selsun blue and head and shoulders for itch relief but still not working. Still have dandruff. Suggestions??
I really need help finding a shampoo that fights dandruff but also works for extremely sensitive skin? Ive had reactions to both selsun blue and dove.
Trial and error,: There is no rhyme or reason to the sensitivity you are experiencing. Many patients allergic to sulfa will react to Selsun. Dove is fairly mild. Neutogena is mild and non-allergenic and many of my patients have done well with Zinc products. A trial of Zincon shampoo may be helpful. If these don't work see your physician or Dermatologist for other options. Good luck and good hair. ...Read more
I am using selsun blue dandruff shampoo & i notice i have more hair loss & more oily hair. But the dandruff are controlled, should i stop using it?
Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, allergies, fungal infection, or irritated skin. I would recommend to alternate shampoos between an anti-dandruff shampoo and non anti-dandruff shampoo. If your dandruff is already controlled using selsun blue 2-3x a week should work. For natural anti-dandruff products look for a shampoo with tea tree oil or even an essential oil of it. ...Read more
I have keratosis pilaris. Can i use anti dandruff shampoo selsun blue and urea cream and retin a (tretinoin) before bedtime?
Of course: It may actually help. "KP" is very common and will come and go probably for the rest of your life. If you take good care of yourself, your fitness and otherwise good health and how you carry yourself will keep anyone from noticing or caring about your skin. Several of my physician friends have it; they just laugh about it. Best wishes. ...Read more
I used Nizoral (ketoconazole) anti dandruff shampoo accidently instead of selsun blue to get rid of skin irriation and it make my scrotum red/dry any suggestions?
Shouldn't cause any: The Nizoral (ketoconazole) should not cause any problems in the scrotal area. The Nizoral (ketoconazole) is an anti-fungal shampoo, so could help with jock itch in the scrotal area. The selsun blue is selenium- more for the scalp dryness and therefore helps the dandruff. ...Read more

Seborrhea: Selsun blue is a brand name shampoo for the treatment of seborrhea (dandruff). Most people benefit by shampooing to a good lather and then letting the medication sit on the scalp for about 5 minutes. You want this time to penetrate the scalp.

Third best treatment: Selenium sulfide found in selsun blue kills the fungi (malassezia furfur) that causes tinea versiclolor. Applying the shampoo, letting it dry on for 10 minutes, washing it off, do this daily for 7-10 days may do the trick. Or .... Ask your doctor for a single dose of Fluconazole or ketoconazole and watch your skin clear up. ...Read more

I actually tell my: patients to apply it neck down in the shower and leave on for 20 minutes then wash off. They should do that daily for two weeks then the scale should be gone and they can expose their skin to sunlight ( 10 minutes only a day and no burning) which will repigment the skin.
