An Itchy Scalp Remedy Review: Meted Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

If you're suffering from Scalp Psoriasis, Seborrhea Dermatitis, or Dandruff and seeking an over-the counter (OTC) remedy, then perhaps Meted is for you.

Meted is an anti-dandruff shampoo containing a combination of Salicylic Acid (3%) and Sulfur (5%). It is rather strong for an over-the-counter scalp remedy. You will not see Meted in stock on shelves. It needs to bought directly from a pharmacist, but you do not need a prescription. Meted is also available for purchase online at Amazon and DermaDoctor.

Here are the Active Ingredients of Meted: Salicylic Acid 3%, Sulfur 5%. Here are the Inactive Ingredients of Meted: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Panthenol, Hydroxy-propyl Methylcellylose, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate and Fragrance.

Here are the instructions as it is written on the bottle itself:

  • Shake well before using.
  • Massage into wet hair and scalp.
  • Rinse and reapply as needed.
  • Use at least twice a week, or as directed by a physician

Meted has proven to be an effective treatment for various itchy scalp and smelly scalp conditions. The odor of the shampoo is not in any way offensive. When compared to the likes of Denorex and Selsun Blue, the scent of Meted is rather subtle. Granted, there is a slight hint of Sulfur, but it is masked well.

Meted does stain colored cotton material, so beware of that fact.


  • An effective remedy for minor itchy scalp and smelly scalp conditions
  • The scent is rather subtle and not offensive
  • More easily obtainable as a prescription is NOT required


  • Stains material

Based on these findings, you may want to give Meted a try. As always, read the warning labels before usage. If you need more information as to side effects and reactions with other medications that you are taking, consult your doctor before usage.
