Acne sufferers claim anti-dandruff shampoo cleared up their angry red spots


THERE is no shortage of products on the market when it comes to treating spot prone skin from the budget to the blow-out.

But Reddit users are claiming that anti-dandruff shampoo is equally effective when it comes to clearing up breakouts.

Reddit users have revealed the dramatic transformation in their skin after applying anti-dandruff shampoo to their spots

Redditor HowAboutBiteMe took to the social media site on Tuesday where she sung the praises of using the hair product on her skin.

She wrote: “I’ve had insane clusters of under-the-skin pimples on my face for weeks. No amount of love and care was doing anything, and I was really not looking forward to a friend’s wedding this coming weekend.

“It was one of you who suggested I might have fungal acne, and I found thread after thread on this subreddit suggesting Nirozal shampoo. Shampoo? On my face?

“I thought you were all nuts. But I was desperate, so this morning I lathered it on my face and left it for five minutes or so, then headed out for the day.

“And oh my god, this stuff works! It’s not even been six hours and when I got home I almost thought I must’ve lost my contacts somehow during the day, because where have all the spots and bumps on my forehead gone! I didn’t even know a product could actually work this fast!”

And she was not the first to have noticed the astonishing difference the anti-dandruff products can make to your face.

Last year user u/lthllyblonde shared the dramatic before and after shots of her forehead five months after she began applying Dove Dermacare Scalp Anti-Dandruff  anti-dandruff shampoo to it.

She wrote: “I am still waiting for a few of the scars to completely clear, but I couldn’t be happier with the results! Fungal acne is real, you guys! And anti-dandruff shampoo can work as a treatment!”

New York based dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. said that a build-up of yeast is a major contributor to dandruff which can also cause people to break out.

He explains to Women’s Health: “Yeast on the skin can invade hair follicles, causing pus-filled pimples.”

Anti-dandruff products contain zinc pyrithione which kills yeast and fungus healping to ease both flaky scalps and acne.
