How long will it take to get rid of scalp infections?

For fungal infections, the length of treatment depends on what type of infection you have, how severe it is and if you have any other health problems, such as problems with your immune system. Some courses of treatment can be as short as a few days, other courses can be as long as eight weeks (for example, for ringworm infection of the scalp).17

If you have a mild bacterial infection, it will likely clear up in a few days with basic self-care measures. BETADINE® Medicated Shampoo is perfect for this. For more serious or recurring symptoms, you may need to see a doctor or pharmacist.16
