How Acvaketo S Shampoo works

Acvaketo S Shampoo is a combination of two medicines: Ketoconazole and Salicylic Acid which treat dandruff. Ketoconazole is an antifungal. It works by stopping the growth of dandruff-causing fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Salicylic Acid is a keratolytic medicine which helps break down the skin clumps on scalp and relieves itching and flaking associated with dandruff.
