Dandruff is frustrating on its own, but can also be an indicator of scalp health that could lead to hair loss if not treated appropriately. The prescription shampoo we offer for dandruff treatment can improve symptoms in most cases within one month.
Nurx hair loss and scalp treatment includes an online evaluation by a medical provider licensed in your state, medication prescribed (if medically appropriate) and delivered, a scheduled check-in with the Nurx medical team, and unlimited follow-up with a Nurx medical provider for one year.
Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication used to treat dandruff, itchiness, and flaking of the scalp, face or neck.
Antifungals: Medications like Ketoconazole 2% cream treat dandruff, irritation, and flaking on the scalp so that you can stop itching and touching your scalp in ways that can be bothersome and increase the chance of hair loss. Symptoms should begin to improve within 2 weeks.
Dandruff can be caused by multiple factors, usually by a common fungus called Malassezia (seborrheic dermatitis). But dandruff can also be caused by a reaction to a hair or skin product (contact dermatitis), a result of another skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, or as a result of product buildup.
Simply answer a few questions about your symptoms or health history on the Nurx website or app, then share a few photos of your hair and scalp. There’s no appointment required and you can get started any time. One of our licensed medical providers will conduct a virtual assessment by reviewing your answers and photos. They’ll create your personalized treatment plan (if medically appropriate), then our pharmacy will send the medication directly to your door.
