Should i take multi-vitamin tablets while using neutrogena for sebhorreic dermatitis to re-grow hair loss?

Your choice: Most people who take multivitamins probably derive no benefit from them, especially if their diet and sun exposure are normal. There is no reason you cannot take a cheap vitamin-and-mineral tablet from a reputable pharmacy chain. Don't spend much money on them, and good luck with the continued treatment of scalp dermatitis -- it can take persistence to treat successfully. ...Read more

Any danger of cancer from Neutrogena coal tar shampoo to use daily for 2 wks 4 hair loss from seborheic dermatitis ? Thought I read it was questnable?
