How does selenium sulfide treat dandruff?

Selenium sulfide can be used to treat dandruff. Dandruff is a scalp condition that causes itching and flaking of oily, white skin on the scalp. Sometimes, dandruff is caused by dry or irritated skin, but it can also be caused by a yeast-like fungus. In those cases, selenium sulfide can destroy the fungus cells and slow skin cells from dying. In this way, selenium sulfide helps to reduce the symptoms of irritation and flaking. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about treating dandruff with selenium sulfide
