A: Please consult your physician and follow your doctor's recommendation. I can provide you with general treatment information. Begin with shampoo. Shampoo with selenium sulfide (1%-2.5%), zinc pyrithione (1%-2%), or ketoconazole used two to three times weekly at home can help decrease shedding of spores, decrease spread of the infection to other people, and should be used together with the oral medications. Read the full answer here.
