Question: my sister has bald patches on her head, her doctor has given her Nizoral shampoo - I looked it up on the net it says it's for dandruff?? What do you recommend please?
Answer: You are correct - Nizoral is for dandruff, I am unsure why this has been recommended for patchy hair loss. Your sister would need an accurate diagnosis before seeking any treatment. It sounds like the condition could be Alopecia Areata by what you explain but there are a number of possible diagnoses.
