Protar K Scalp Solution

PROTAR K SCALP contains Ketoconazole and Coaltar

Protar-K Solution 100 ml belongs to a class of combination drugs called ‘antifungal with keratolytic agents‘ primarily used to treat dandruff and control seborrheic dermatitis (scaly patches and red skin on the scalp). Dandruff is a flaky, itchy scalp without signs of inflammation.

Protar-K Solution 100 ml is composed of two medicines: Ketoconazole (antifungal) and Coal Tar (keratolytic agent). Ketoconazole is an antifungal agent that works by preventing the growth of dandruff-causing fungi by avoiding them from forming their own protective covering.

Coal tar belongs to a class of drugs known as keratoplastic, which works by removing dead cells from the skin’s top layer and slowing down skin cells’ growth. This effect decreases scaling and dryness, thus relieving itching and cracking related to dandruff.
