Ketoconazole cream is employed to address various fungal skin conditions, including tinea corporis (ringworm), tinea cruris (jock itch), tinea pedis (athlete’s foot), tinea versicolor, as well as yeast infections of the skin. Ketoconazole belongs to the class of antifungal medications known as imidazoles. Its mechanism involves inhibiting the growth of fungi responsible for causing infections.

Uses and Dosage

Apply this medication exclusively to the skin. Begin by cleaning and drying the designated area thoroughly. Administer the medication to the affected skin, typically once or twice daily, in accordance with your doctor’s instructions. The appropriate dosage and treatment duration hinge on the specific infection being addressed.

Adhere to the prescribed frequency; excessive application won’t expedite recovery but might intensify side effects.

Ensure that an ample amount of the medication covers both the affected skin and a portion of the surrounding skin. Subsequent to application, wash your hands. Unless explicitly advised by your doctor, do not wrap, cover, or bandage the treated area.

Refrain from applying this medication to the eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina. If contact with the eyes occurs, such as when treating dandruff, promptly rinse with water.

For optimal results, incorporate this medication into a regular routine, adhering to consistent administration times.

Continue utilizing this medication until you’ve completed the full prescribed quantity, even if symptoms abate following the onset of ketoconazole treatment. Terminating medication prematurely may provide an opportunity for the fungus to persist and potentially trigger a resurgence of the infection.

Should your condition persist beyond the stipulated treatment duration or worsen at any point, inform your doctor promptly.
