Selenium Sulphide is used in the treatment of skin infections and dandruff.
How it works
Topical selenium sulfide may act by an antimitotic action, resulting in a reduction in the turnover of epidermal cells. Selenium sulfide decreases the rate of incorporation of radioactively labeled thymidine into the DNA of dermal epithelial cells. The following organisms are generally considered susceptible to selenium sulfide in vitro: Malassezia furfur, Microsporum sp. including Microsporum audouinii and Microsporum canis, Pityrosporon sp., Trichophyton sp. including Trichophyton schoenleinii and Trichophyton tonsurans.
