Adverse Reactions to Selenium Sulfide
In decreasing order of severity: skin irritation; occasional reports of increase in normal hair loss; discoloration of hair (can be avoided or minimized by thorough rinsing of hair after treatment). As with other shampoos, oiliness or dryness of hair and scalp may occur.
There are no documented reports of serious toxicity in humans resulting from acute ingestion of selenium sulfide 2.25% shampoo. However, acute toxicity studies in animals suggest that ingestion of large amounts could result in potential human toxicity. Evacuation of the stomach contents should be considered in cases of acute oral ingestion.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING
Generally 2 applications each week for 2 weeks will control symptoms. Subsequently, shampoo may be used less frequently – weekly, every 2 weeks, every 3 to 4 weeks or as directed by a physician. Should not be applied more frequently than necessary to maintain control.
Apply to affected areas and lather with a small amount of water. Allow product to remain on skin for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Repeat procedure once a day for seven days or as directed by a physician.
