Malaseb 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.

It is normal in cats & 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.

Reasons for disruption to the natural balance:

  • Allergy, including to pollens, grasses, foods (meats) and fleas.
  • Parasites, such as fleas, mites and lice.
  • Hormonal problems
  • Conformational problems such as deep skin folds, making sweaty crevices.How does Malaseb help?
  • 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
