Nizoral Shampoo As Face Wash - Yay Or Nay?

Recommended Posts

I've been wondering for a long time if my acne wasn't at least partially something else. Info clear up if I'm religious with BP, then I'll slack off a bit and it comes back. But even when I'm clear I still have some bumps.

I've been trying Nizoral under the assumption maybe I have acne AND fungal folliculitus and I think it's helping. In any case my dermatologist said Nizoral can help acne too (though he didn't elaborate how). I guess it can't hurt?

Any experiences to share?

Nay! I was THIS close to buying Nizoral shampoo because I suspected that I had Pityrosporum Folliculitis, which I did have. I talked to my doctor and she gave me Diflucan. Cleared the bumps on my face right up! I followed up with strong probiotics. I blogged about other acne misdiagnosis problems on the Clear Skin Weekend blog. Using Nizoral on the face might be too harsh.
