    I was waking up with my scalp itching and couldn’t figure out why. My dermatologist said this was a common problem. he recommended two treatments: Keralyt 5 shampoo and a topical steroid treatment. I was reluctant to use steroids due to side effects. I tried Keralyt 5 and noticed an immediate reduction in itching. I continued weekly to apply the Keralyt 5 in the itching area, and now have complete remission of that symptom. I follow it up with my normal shampoo and conditioning. I never did use the steroid treatment. I have recommended this product to others with similar problems.

    I have used this product the last time I had an outbreak of dandruff and it cleared after using it and a coal tar product alternately. It is taking much longer after use this time. It helps to leave the product on up to 30 minutes if you can. I have been moving, so didn’t have the time to use it properly. It was recommended by my dermatologist.

  3. Dave from Florida

    Used the Keralyt5 gel and shampoo for three months – not covered by TRICARE. Product minimized but could not eliminate the psoriasis patches (scabs) that presented in various locations on my scalp. Final solution was three overnight applications of Derma-Smoothe/FS which, for the first time in two years, cleared my scalp. Unfortunately, some of the scabs returned a few weeks later requiring another series of treatments. Appears that I will live with this skin disease for the rest of my life 🙁
