“…A valuable single agent is selenium sulphide, which came to prominence after Slepyana and Slinger and Hubbanl 4 had demonstrated its specific antiseborrhocic action. Unfortunately, selenium sulphide is potentially toxic and, while it appears to be well tolerated during short contact with the skin, continuous use of selenium sulphide may be associated with diffuse hair loss 7 and may eventually lead to excessive oiliness 8 • Although other methods of treatment have been recommended, such as pre-shampoo or continuous application of the detergent keratolytics, or continuous application of antiseptic scalp lotions, only shampoos possess the desirable action of degreasing the scalp and simultaneously removing loose epidermal scaling and debris.…”

“…This 38% decrease is much more dramatic and statistically significant than the 12% and 17% differences which you report, yet it too is clinically insignificant because it is unaccompanied by any documented pathology. On the other hand, selenium toxicity in humans is well docu mented [4][5][6][7][8][9]. Before physicians consider any supple mentation or breath the word deficiency, they should give pause to the thought that selenium is toxic at dietary levels comparable to the nutritional requirement for some trace elements [2].…”
