Seborrheic dermatitis is more severe than dandruff and while there aren’t as many treatments available, you can still treat it without a prescription.
Seborrheic dermatitis is similar to dandruff in that its most visible symptom is flakes appearing on the hair and on your shoulders.
In fact, it’s often confused with dandruff.
Many people try an anti-dandruff shampoo first to rule out dandruff, but if that doesn’t work there are other options available.
Prescription-strength shampoo without the prescription
You can get shampoos on prescription that work for seborrheic dermatitis, but at Head & Shoulders we have developed a prescription-strength formula1 that’s available without needing to visit your dermatologist.
Clinical Strength Shampoo contains the active ingredient selenium sulfide (as opposed to the zinc pyrithione in our anti-dandruff shampoos).
It’s specially designed to treat seborrheic dermatitis and has been proven as effective as a prescription shampoo with 2% Ketoconzole –in fact it’s the strongest shampoo you’ll find without a prescription.
