Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo, 250ml

Looking for a shampoo that can help alleviate dry, scaly scalp conditions? Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo is a treatment designed to provide relief for those suffering from seborrhoeic eczema / seborrhoeic dermatitis, and pityriasis capitis. The gentle, yet effective formula helps to remove flakes and soothe red, itchy skin – leaving you with a healthy head of hair.

Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo is for use by adults, the elderly and children. It’s a gentle shampoo that conditions hair without stripping it of its natural oils to leave your scalp feeling cleaner longer!

The active ingredient in this product is benzalkonium chloride. It works by;

  • loosening the scales from the scalp and lifting them from the hair, and;
  • acting as a mild antiseptic to combat the micro-organisms that can make these scalp conditions worse.

What is seborrhoeic eczema?

If you have seborrhoeic dermatitis, your skin will be red and flaky. The itchy parts of this condition are often in areas that tend to produce more grease than other parts on the body – for example face or scalp (or even center chest). It’s also known as eczema; but don’t worry! This type only lasts until adulthood when their life becomes easier with time
It can cause severe itching which leads them quite uncomfortable lives at times because they feel like nothing else helps reduce stress

Symptoms of seborrhoeic dermatitis

The causes of seborrheic dermatitis are unknown, but it’s most commonly found on the following areas:

  • Your scalp – symptoms range from mild, flaky skin (dandruff) to a more severe, scalier, itchy rash which may weep.
  • Your face – especially between your eyebrows, on your cheeks and in the folds at the sides of your nose. It can also affect your eyelids, making them red, swollen and flaky. This is known as blepharitis.
  • Your ears – the skin inside your ear may become inflamed, as well as your outer ear and the skin behind your ear.
  • Your upper chest and your back, between your shoulder blades, may have round, pink or red patches with mild scaling.
  • Skin folds – these are areas that tend to stay moist and include your armpits, under your breasts and your groin. Your skin here might appear pink, shiny and cracked.

How To Use

How To Use Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor, pharmacist or nurse has told you. Check with your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you are not sure.

Use Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo only to treat the scalp conditions that it is intended for.

Use as a shampoo until the scalp looks and feels better or as recommended by your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. Dermax can be used daily if required, reducing frequency of use to once or twice a week as your condition improves. Thereafter, occassional use may be necessary.

For adults, the elderly and children:

  • Wet the hair thoroughly.
  • Apply a sufficient amount of shampoo to produce a rich lather (approximately a quantity the size of a fifty pence piece for short hair, adjusting up depending on length/ thickness of hair).
  • With the tips of the fingers, massage in thoroughly.
  • Remove as much lather as possible with the hands (this is important as it will take the scales with it).
  • Rinse out.
  • If necessary, repeat the steps above.
  • Rinse the hair thoroughly under running water, then dry as normal.

If the shampoo gets into the eyes

The product, or the lather, may cause irritation if it gets into the eyes. If it gets into the eyes, rinse with plenty of water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye. If irritation persists, tell your doctor or pharmacist.

If you use more Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo than you should

Do not worry if you use too much shampoo, simply rinse hair under running water and continue as instructed above.

If you forget to use Dermax Therapeutic Shampoo

Do not worry if you occasionally forget to use this product, just carry on using it when you remember.

If there is no improvement after 4 weeks, or if your scalp condition seems to look or feel worse, discontinue use of the product and consult your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor, pharmacist or nurse
