Appraisal of Efficacy of Two Anti Dandruff Formulation
The relative efficacy of two commercially available anti-dandruff shampoos, one containing selenium sulfide and the other containing an antiseptic, was studied in 40 cases both subjectively and objectively. Shampoo containing selenium sulfide was effective in 72.5% of the cases while the shampoo containing, antiseptic was effective in 47.5% of the cases. Patient compliance was 57.5% for the former and 12.5% for the latter. In 30% of patients either of the shampoo failed to show much improvement. Both the shampoos showed negligible side effects.
