Why do I need to use a coal tar based shampoo?
Q: I am having a faster regeneration of the skin on my scalp, which is like patches. I have been asked to take a coal tar based shampoo. Is there any thing else that can be taken to control this?
A:It has to be evaluated carefully. The problem can be psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. Coal tar containing shampoo works with psoriasis. Anti-fungal shampoos containing clotrimazole, ketoconozole works for seborrheic dermatitis. Consult a dermatologist.
