About Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo
Trying to get rid of common dandruff with a regular shampoo is almost impossible and if you are trying to treat psoriasis and seborrhoea dermatitis in the same manner, you are practically doomed to fail. For treating such conditions, you need a medicated shampoo such as Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo.
Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo information
Dandruff and conditions like psoriasis and seborrhoea dermatitis don’t respond to the common shampoo alone. Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo with coal tar, a keratoplastic, slows skin cell growth and helps the scalp shed dead cells. It reduces symptoms of dandruff and other scalp conditions.
This product is regularly prescribed by medical practitioners and can be used to treat other rashes such as eczema, chronic exudative dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis. With regular use, Neutrogena T/Gel can help keep these conditions under control.
To aid hydration of your skin, drink plenty of water. Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo is a medicated shampoo that effectively treats hair and scalp disorders. Unlike most medicated shampoos, it has pleasant smell and will leave your hair feeling clean and shiny.
Read the following warnings to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.
