Re: Just started Nizoral cream and shampoo - advice please
Same here. I've been using Nizoral shampoo for decades for scalp seborrhea/dandruff. I also have seborrhea of the face, and for a while I was either putting the shampoo on my face or using Nizoral cream on it. I finally figured out after years of aggravation of my facial acne, unresponsive to salicylic acid/alcohol, benzoyl peroxide, retin-A, and systemic antibiotics, that it was the Nizoral on the face that was causing the exacerbation.
I finally saw a dermatologist, who prescribed sodium sulfacetamide lotion for both the acne and the facial seborrhea, and I cut back to the nonprescription strength of the Nizoral shampoo (and increased the frequency of use) and quit putting it on my face. Voila, my facial acne is finally under control at 51 years old.
Of course, this solution is no good for anyone who is allergic to sulfa.
