13.9 Shampoos and other preparations for scalp and hair conditions

Shampoos

Ketoconazole
  • Shampoo 2% (£2.72 = 120ml)

Indications

Hirsutism

Women should be advised about local methods of hair removal, and in the mildest cases this may be all that is required.

Co-cyprindiol may be effective for moderately severe hirsutism. Metformin is an alternative in women with polycystic ovary syndrome [unlicensed indication]. Systemic treatment is required for 6-12 months before benefit is seen.
