What is a Ketoconazole Shampoo?

Ketoconazole shampoo is used in the treatment of Tinea corporis (ringworm fungal skin infection), tinea cruris (fungal infection of the groyne or buttocks), tinea pedis (fungal infection of the feet and between the toes), tinea versicolor (fungal infection of the skin that causes brown or light coloured spots on the chest, back, arms, legs, or neck), and yeast infections of the skin. Tinea versicolor is treated with prescription ketoconazole shampoo. It is an OTC treatment for dandruff that causes flaking, scaling, and itching on the scalp. Ketoconazole belongs to the imidazole class of antifungal drugs. It acts by inhibiting the growth of infection-causing fungus.

How to Use

  • Ketoconazole is available as a shampoo and a cream for use on the skin. Ketoconazole shampoo is available OTC and is applied to the scalp. The infection is usually treated with a single application of prescription ketoconazole shampoo. To control dandruff, use OTC ketoconazole shampoo every 3 to 4 days for up to 8 weeks, then use as needed.
  • Wet your hair and scalp completely. To clean your hair and scalp, use enough shampoo to create lather. Massage the entire scalp lightly. Hair should be rinsed with warm water. If your doctor instructs you to, repeat the procedure. After the final rinse, thoroughly dry your hair.
  • Apply the shampoo, massage, and rinse well if using the OTC strength (1 per cent). Repeat the procedure. After the second rinse, completely dry your hair.
  • If you're using it for skin other than your scalp, wet it and apply the shampoo to the problem region as well as the healthy skin around it. Lather up and let on for 5 minutes before rinsing with water.
  • Your tinea versicolor infection may be successfully treated with a single use of prescription ketoconazole shampoo. However, if your skin is exposed to the sun, it may take many months for your skin colour to return to normal. There is a potential that you will get recurrent tinea versicolor infection after your infection has been treated.
  • Ketoconazole shampoo should only be applied to the scalp. Avoid getting it in your eyes or mouth, and avoid swallowing the drug.

Precautions - Ketoconazole Shampoo

  • If you have allergies to ketoconazole or any other drugs, lotions, or shampoos, notify your doctor. If you plan to use the cream, let your doctor know if you have a sulfite allergy.
  • Tell your doctor about all of your prescription and nonprescription drugs, vitamins, nutraceuticals, and herbal products. Your doctor may need to adjust your prescription dosages or keep a close eye on you for side effects.
  • If you have any medical problems, notify your doctor. If you plan to use the cream, notify your doctor if you have asthma or have had asthma in the past.
  • If you have a pregnancy, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, notify your doctor.

Benefits of Ketoconazole

The antifungal medication ketoconazole shampoo is used to treat fungal infections. It's used to treat fungal infections on the skin. Athletes' feet, ringworm, genital thrush, and sweat rash are among them. It works by destroying and preventing the growth of fungi, eliminating the infection and alleviating symptoms. Even if your symptoms go away, you should continue to take this prescription for as long as it is suggested; otherwise, they may return. This could take many weeks, depending on the nature of the infection you're treating. Even if your skin is entirely healed, you may need to use shampoo on a regular basis to keep the symptoms from reappearing.

Side Effects - Ketoconazole Shampoo

  • It's possible that the treated skin will sting, swell, irritate, or become red. Inform your doctor immediately if any of these side effects persist or worsen.
