My pigs have fungus and I have this anti dandruff shampoo called Nizoral. I read online that it helps. Does it? Also would this work for mange mites? FYI I have the pink coloured one

As you are aware the forum does not support home treatment.
You need to see a vet for proper diagnosis and treatment for the correct condition at the correct strength. If your piggies have fungal I can assure you it’s a false economy trying to home treat. Nizoral in any event is not recommended. Very harsh on the skin. Use in humans while piggies are being treated properly for an outbreak with vet grade treatment to prevent transmission to humans. Not for use on the piggies.
