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.

Third best treatment. Selenium sulfide found in selsun blue kills the fungi (malassezia furfur) that causes tinea versiclolor.

DANDRUFF & ITCHINESS. HAVE YOU SEEN A DERMATOLOGIST YET? IF NOT DO SEE ONE. 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...

How can I cure/get rid of tinea versicolor...Have used selsun blue...Taken perscribed pills by dermatologists...Nothing works. Help!?

Persistence. Tinea versicolor takes time to clear & often recurs. Perhaps prescription strength selenium sulfide lotion (2.5%) applied for 10 minutes daily for 7 days will work better than otc selsun blue (due to higher concentration of active ingredient). Washing clothing , bedding, bath linens (or perhaps using an ultraviolet wand) to destroy the fungus will speed recovery. Read more...

I think I have 2 ringworms on my scalp. Will washing with selsun blue get rid of them? It says it has 1% selenium sulfide as the active ingredient.

Unlikely. If it is true scalp ringworm, the topical lotions can reduce the surface growth but the problem is deeper.Scalp ringworm gets down into the root system of the hair and usually requires oral prescription meds that get there through the blood. IF your problem is really a ringworm, it is unlikely to go away with such treatment. Read more...
