My dad used to have this skin condition I can't remember what its called but it was on his face, neck, and scalp. it starts with a "P" any help? Answered by Dewitt Chandrasekhar 1 year ago.

selsun blue contains an acid which is what makes the dandruff 'go away' what it is actually doing is eating it off. You can be allergic to anything, and if that is the only thing that has changed and esp if you are using it every day you need to d'c your use of it. Dandruff shampoos, no matter how gentle they claim to be should not be used every day. Frankly they should not be used more than once a week. And your dads p thing was called psoriasis, and I would imagine the selsun blue irritated it. If you were going to develp[e psoriasis it should have happened in your late teens early 20's.

Selsun Blue For Skin Rash Answered by Ollie Rudin 1 year ago.

if you suspect it is the shampoo then stop using it for a week and see what happens. After 6 months of changing shampoos, styling cream, hats, brushes, laundry detergent, I finally discovered that conditioner was giving me a rash. (hair conditioner in general) I tried switching it at 1st...but i needed to stop it not switch it. Ugh....if you are using conditioner, try and stop that for a week and see what happens. luck Answered by Kurtis Bloomfield 1 year ago.

Selsun Blue uses a selenium compound for dandruff control instead of Head 'n Shoulders' pyrithone zinc. I assume their other products have the same amount of active ingrdient (1% of the selinium compound) as the original product. Last month I saw a Head 'n Shoulders product in a dark blue bottle that has the same active ingredient as Selsun, and the price is about 1/2 as much per ounce. At that rate you can afford a separate conditioner and get the same dandruff control of the Selsun product! Answered by Latrice Furia 1 year ago.

Selsun Salon Answered by Adriane Dehetre 1 year ago.

I had a 13 year history of psoriasis, though I was in good health otherwise. But these severe large, thick and scaly excoriated plaques on my neck, ears, trunk and limbs ruined the way I was leading my life. I would be with red, inflamed itchy skin for most part of the year and these silvery scales would seem to be erupting without any reason. To make matters worse, blisters would appear over already red and itching skin. It was living hell. I was treated with various options but nothing seemed to be working. Some of the treatments that I underwent in this depressing period of 13 years included tar preparation, tropical steroids and anthralin. I was also given light therapy many times but everything I tried would give me temporary relief. And soon, after a few days I would be plagued with the situation again. In one of those moments when I was completely lost I stumbled upon this website just by chance. I read it and felt that as if someone had put the story my life on this web page. I was thoroughly convinced that if ANYONE can cure me of condition, it would be you. And was I right, or what. I started recovering within 3 days of starting this treatment. Something that had become a painful part of me for 13 years was actually getting healed! My ears are healed and my neck is smooth again!. I am a month into the treatment and I have never felt better in my life! Psoriasis Revolution? Answered by Perry Suter 1 year ago.

Selsun Blue is used to help with Tinea versicolor. This is a fungus that is naturally on your skin but when it gets hot out it can be an outbreak. This causes white little patches mostly on your torso but can also be on your arms and face. These feel itchy like someone is pricking you with a small needle. Selsun blue just clears the fungus. Not the spots... The best thing you can do is see your doctor and they might know how to even your skin tone. Answered by Tonda Eberlein 1 year ago.


At vets suggestion, I used selsun blue shampoo on my dog, it turned his white hair gray. Should I be worried?
Asked by Heath Wiewel 1 year ago.

Selsun Blue is good for dogs that need their skin dried and de-greased. Like if they have a an allergic reaction that makes their skin over produce yeast. Its a topical drug that has selenium sulfide in it. There have been published studies in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology that suggest selenium sulfide changes the color of hair. A lot of people claim it turned their hair grey, but the usual result is a yellowish red color. If you are worried, I would stop using it and watch his fur. It should go back to white. If it bothers you, his fur being grey, I would ask your vet for alternatives. Answered by Corey Hockman 1 year ago.

Is it a show dog? If not, and if your vet suggested selsun blue (a medicated shampoo) to help him recover from some skin condition, then I wouldn't worry. But any change like that would have me calling the vet, to let him know what happened. If he said it was a harmless side effect, then I wouldn't care. And, unless it's a show dog where only white hair is acceptable, I would suggest you shouldn't care either. Answered by Una Knick 1 year ago.

It's odd to me that your vet suggested human shampoo on your dog; however, it sounds like the color of the shampoo just soaked into the coat a bit too much causing the color change. You could call your vet to double check to ensure that it's not a problem. I suspect in a few days it will fade away or you could just rinse your dog every day and hope it goes back to normal. Answered by Jere Allee 1 year ago.

I have never heard of using any human shampoo on dogs, because it will strip out the oil in their hair.R u sure you got all the shampoo out? Also I would call another vet and ask. Answered by Hai Andracki 1 year ago.

good afternoon you need to give your vet a call and see what he have to say about that because our dog groomer always tell us not to shampoo our dog coat with human shampoo cause the ph in the shampoo is not right ok bye enjoy your day Answered by Floretta Sails 1 year ago.

My vet suggests it also it fights yeast due to allergies. Answered by Colby Countis 1 year ago.

I'm sure the vets would not say it otherwise. I am not entirely sure, but you could ring your vet just to make sure. Answered by Cortez Susswein 1 year ago.

It cleans out the dandruff and stops the itch but I can still tell my scalp is pretty dry and flaky. I'm am curious if the salicylic is causing my skin become extremely dry. My skin is pretty sensitive so I need something that isn't going to chemically irritate my skin. I was considering buying Head and Shoulders (has selenium sulfide) or maybe something with zinc pyrithione. Will more 'natural' dandruff shampoos like from Body Shop/Kiehl's be less harsh on my scalp? Any suggestions? Answered by Bonnie Hurn 1 year ago.

Hi there, Selsun blue not working? that is a little strange but try the following, it is a natural approah to dandruff and dry scalp: What you need: 1. The NATURAL Tea Tree Oil 2. Motions dandruff shampoo 3. Any Herbal anti-dandruff shampoo 4. The Natural Vitamin E Oil This is what to do; 1. Rub the Tea Tree Oil in your head(all over where the dandruff is) 2. Leave it in for 10-15 minutes 3. Wet the hair 4. Wash the hair with any anti Herbal dandruff shampoo, about 3 times. 4. Wash out the shampoo and dry the hair. 5. After you have dried the hair grease it with Vitamin E Oil all over. Doing this for atleast 2 times a week will help you. Try it it works! =] Answered by Sharleen Stellman 1 year ago.

Dandruff simply does not go away. Selsun Blue is the best shampoo that you can buy for dandruff and it comes in a variety of shampoos as well. Answered by Christel Mackowski 1 year ago.

Hi, i have had a similar problem with dandruff. I tried using Head and Shoulders originally and it made the dandruff worse so I switched to the cheapo Walmart anti-dandruff shampoo and it worked for me. My advice is to try the H&S, it may work. Try different brands, as not all anti-dandruff shampoos are the same. Good luck. Answered by Estelle Randall 1 year ago.

Plain old Tar Gel shampoo (T-Gel or similar generic) will generally work well. If you want to try a more natural route, Tea Tree Oil works very well. You can either apply it directly to your scalp before you wash your hair or buy shampoo with tea tree oil in it. I have found that direct application works better but it does burn a bit sometimes - though the irritation will go away. Answered by Lea Uleman 1 year ago.

But my brother recently said that he used it and got a few strands of white hair and then my dad said he got white hair because he used selsun blue (long ago). All this time I've used selsun blue, I've not seen any white hair but I don't want to go on using it if it could cause white hair!

Selsun blue can be used on the skin as well. I noticed it makes the area it's applied to feel rubbery if you leave it on to long, but other than that, no gray areas or anything. You might want a second opinion. Google the substances in selsun... Answered by Violette Menard 1 year ago.

I've had dandruff for a few years and selsun blue works fine. I under no circumstances had that concern. Maybe they combined it with every other chemical compounds and that prompted their concern. Answered by Annie Kaigle 1 year ago.
