Tedol 20mg/g Shampoo is indicated for the treatment and prophylaxis of infections in which the yeast Malassezia (Pityrosporum) is involved, such as pityriasis versicolor (localised), seborrheic dermatitis and pityriasis capitis (dandruff).
Ketoconazole, a synthetic imidazole-dioxolane derivative, has potent antifungal activity against dermatophytes such as Trichophyton sp., Epidermophyton sp., Microsporum sp., and yeasts such as Candida sp and Malassezia furfur (Pityrosporum ovale). Tedol shampoo quickly relieves scaling and itching that are commonly associated with pityriasis versicolor, seborrheic dermatitis and pityriasis capitis (dandruff).
Active substances: 20 mg/g ketoconazole.
