Malaseb Dermcare Medicated Shampoo is registered to treat Seborrhoeic Dermatitis and Dermatophytosis. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is the scientific name for a skin infection involving bacteria (Staphylococcus) and yeast (Malassezia). Dermatophytosis is the scientific name for ringworm, a condition which is not due to worms (like the name suggests) but is in fact a fungal infection.
Seborrhoeic Dermatitis
It is normal in dogs to have low numbers of resident bacteria and yeasts on the skins surface. When there is a disruption to the skin's natural ecosystem these bacteria and yeasts can overgrow causing disease. Disruptions to the natural balance can be cause by a variety of factors including: allergies, parasites, hormonal problems, and conformational problems such as deep skin folds creating sweaty crevices. Malaseb Dermcare Medicated Shampoo works fast treat Seborrhoeic Dermatitis as it:
  • Kills the micro-organisms, helping to keep the numbers of yeasts and bacteria at manageable levels.
  • Removes excess scale and oils, commonly produced when the skin is infected.
  • Removes allergens such as pollens which can be caught in fur or on skin causing irritation.
Malaseb Dermcare Medicated Shampoo should be used twice weekly when the infection is active. You may be able to reduce the frequency of bathing to once per week or fortnight once the infection is under control. In most circumstances long term therapy is needed as 'curing' the cause of the imbalance is not always possible.
Dermatophytosis (Ringworm)
Ringworm is the most common fungal condition in cats and also a well recognised problem in dogs and horses. Malaseb helps to sterilise the coat of ringworm spores, which speeds recovery and helps prevent the spread of the disease. Ringworm in cats is a systemic disease which means that although you may only see a few spots the cat is actually covered in ringworm infection and thus all over treatment is needed. Malaseb should be used twice weekly during ringworm treatment. This is typically required for 8-12 weeks.
It is important if you have young children or immune-compromised adults in the same household as an infected cat that you discuss this with your veterinarian or doctor. Ringworm can have serious consequences for those without a good immune system.
Tips when using Malaseb Dermcare Medicated Shampoo
  • Leave the shampoo on for the full 10 minutes wherever possible.
  • Always make sure the coat is thoroughly wet before applying Malaseb to make lathering and spreading easier.
  • Using a sponge can help to spread the shampoo well. The sponge also holds water which again helps to ensure the coat is adequately wet during application.
  • A damp cloth, with a little diluted foam can be used to clean the face of both cats and dogs.
  • Speak with your vet if you're concerned about whether or not to use this product or for how long.

Best fungal shampoo

Found the 1 litre bottle for such a good price. I’ve used Malaseb on both my Dogue De Bordeaux, it’s must for fungal. I use it weekly to maintain the skin allergies, would be literally lost without it, only shampoo to ever control yeast and fungal.
