Stieprox, a new antifungal shampoo for dandruff
You'll start seeing prescriptions for Stieprox, a new antifungal shampoo for dandruff just approved by Health Canada.
Most people think dandruff is due to dry scalp...but it can also be caused by a common yeast called Malassezia furfur.
Stieprox contains 1.5% of ciclopirox olamine to control the growth of M. furfur. Overgrowth of this yeast is thought to lead to scalp itching and flaking.
