Salcid Antifungal Soap contains Selenium Sulfide as its main active ingredient efficiently treats fungal infections of skin and scalp. It performs keratolytic action that helps with shedding off dead skin layers and fastening skin healing. This antifungal soap is employed as an adjuvant therapy to treat and control fungal infections that help lessen scalp redness, irritation, flaking, and itching. Moreover, its antipruritic, antiseptic, and sebum control action is also beneficial in treating tinea infections responsible for causing fungal infections on the skin.
There are two ways that Salcid Antifungal Soap works. Selenium Sulfide functions as a moderate antifungal, halting the development and growth of the yeast that causes fungal infections on skin. Additionally, it encourages the body to produce and shed less dead skin, which aids in healing scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff.
