If Ketoconazole 200mg does not work on me, should i use a stronger Ketoconazole with more mg's?
Asked by Gillian Servey 6 months ago.
Ketoconazole is a synthetic antifungal drug used to prevent and treat skin and fungal infections. Due to its side-effect profile, it has been superseded by newer antifungals, such as fluconazole and itraconazole. Ketoconazole is sold commercially as an anti-dandruff shampoo, branded Nizoral®, by Janssen Pharmaceutical. Ketoconazole is very lipophilic (fat loving), which leads to accumulation in fatty tissues. The less toxic and more effective triazole compounds fluconazole and itraconazole have largely replaced ketoconazole for internal use. Ketoconazole is best absorbed at highly acidic levels, so antacids or other causes of decreased stomach acid levels will lower the drug's efficacy when taken orally. Since I don't know what you have I cannot suggest you to go in for a higher dose of it or no cause if you do so it might lead to side effects which are greater and also toxicity. I advise you to go to a doctor and get it checked. It is possible that the fungal infection which you have is resistant to the ketoconazole and most probably your doctor will suggest that you change your medicine or he will give you a combination of medicines.BUT DO NOT INCREASE THE MGS(WEIGHT/DOSE) WITHOUT CONSULTING A PHYSICIAN.

Asked by Luanna Brayer 6 months ago.
Its the healing process. Edit~ Ketoconazole cream is used for treating infections caused by a fungal infection or a yeast infection. It actually works by killing the fungus or yeast. This cream also can work by preventing the fungus or the yeast from growing. Ketoconazole cream is a wonder cream of sorts, and it is used to treat many kinds of infections on the human body, over the course of several weeks time. Versatile Cream 1. This versatile cream is used to treat athlete's foot, also called tinea pedis. It is also used to treat ringworm of the groin, that is called jock itch, or tinea crunis. Senorrheic dermatitis, sun fungus, diaper rash and yeast infection of the skin all can be treated with ketoconazole as well. Athlete's Foot 2. One of the many infections that ketoconazole cream can cure is athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis. Athlete's foot is a fungal infection that develops in moist areas of the foot such as between the toes, which causes itching, stinging and burning. Ringworm 3. Ringworm of the body, also known as tinea corporis, has no chance against ketoconazole cream. Ringworm develops in the layers of the skin, and it takes on a circular, ring-like appearance. It is quite often itchy, red and rash-like. When ketoconazole cream is applied according to the doctor's directions, this fungal infection is all but cured. Sun Fungus 4. Sun fungus or pityriasis versicolor is a very common fungal infection that ketoconazole cream can clear up in a matter of weeks. Sun fungus interferes with the normal pigmentation of the skin, leaving behind small discolored patches. This kind of infection is very persistent when the weather heats up and becomes humid. Seborrheic Dermatitiis 5. Seborrheic dermatitis is also known as cradle cap when it affects babies. Dermatitis will often strike the head area, but may also affect the face and the chest. Ketoconazole cream works magic on this nasty scalp infection that makes a person's head itchy, dry and scaly. Answered by Marilu Villerreal 6 months ago.
I think I might have the same problem. I once went to a dermatologist and they did a punch biopsy (basically took a skin sample) and they told me I have dermatitis. They said there is no cure and to use whatever cream works for me. This was about a year ago. Do you find that it's worse (the reddest) when you get out of the shower? cuz it is for me. I plan on goin back to a different Dermatologist to get a second opinion. For now I use Aveeno and it seems to work pretty good. Some days you can hardly see any flakey or red skin but other days no matter what I try it's very bad. Answered by Marquitta Labreche 6 months ago.

Interesting! I've never been good at coming up with things like this, but I'll give it a go. Rachmaninoff: "Warning: May cause uncontrollable fear and intense sorrow. Side effects include curling up in a corner and crying. Avoid talking to people while on this medication." Moonlight Sonata: "Warning: Those on this medication may find themselves doing the exact same thing, such as brushing their teeth or closing a door, over and over and over and over again--over and over and over and over again--" I have a friend who hates Clair de Lune, so if she were to write one for it, she would probably put: "Warning: May induce hallucinations of being locked in a car with the windows rolled up in the middle of July for hours." Oh, I have another one for Rachmaninoff: "Warning: You should not take Rachmaninoff if your hands are the size of an average human's. Only those who A. Have strange hand deformities or B. Come from a different planet where everyone can reach 13ths should take this medication. Talk to your doctor about other treatment options." The Lark Ascending: "Warning: this medication does not give the user the ability to fly." XD Can't wait to see the others! Edit: Yeah, I actually stole it from that one :P Answered by Lizzette Raponi 6 months ago.

Answered by Darcel Yrigollen 6 months ago.
Ketoconazole (Nizoral is one commercial name) is basically anti fungal. I was given it for a yeast infection I incurred in a hospital stay years ago. (Ya gotta love hospitals.) Now I use it as a prescribed topical 2.5% cream and shampoo for a chronic facial dermatitis condition. First, all circumstances are different. I use my shampoo every other day as a shampoo, and the cream twice daily on my face, every other day. Using a shampoo as a cream sounds like self-medication, especially since you have so many questions. My symptoms cleared in about a week, but I must maintain the regimen. In my case, prolonged use of a penetrating cream has had no side effects over years. Your shampoo may be an over the counter item (Is it bright red like mine?), but the dermatologist told me to leave the suds in place 5 minutes and rinse well--every other day. I think you need to talk to the pharmacist at a minimum. Answered by Tomasa Stokan 6 months ago.
Skin is the largest organ in the human body. Hairs and nails are modified skin . A specialty called Dermatology is devoted to this organ like Cardiology to the heart. Advertisements by shampoo and lotion makers are not 100% reliable.Every cell in the human body has a life span. Cell is born and dead. This includes brain cells. Red blood cells are born in bone marrow , come out and circulate in the blood and live for a maximum of 120 days . Later dead RBC become pigments and are disposed off by excetion through urine etc But I repeat lotions and shampoos are advertised for sales. They are of limited help. Living hair only grows and that`s why we need a hair cut.Tips of hairs and nails are painless or else we will run for our lives if a hair dresser is nearby Answered by Libby Lapitan 6 months ago.
Don't know about the effects of the ketoconazole shampoo used as a lotion. I believe it is an anti-fungal and I believe that tinea versicolor is due to the fungus candida albicans. I would suggest learning more about candida and what foods you can eat to assist the shampoo. Yogurt is one. There is info about candida albicans at the yeast link at www.hufa.org.

Ketoconazole cream for a yeast infection? How do I use it?
My doctor prescribed me ketoconazole for a yeast infection. This was my first time going to the doctor without my mom so I probably didn't ask enough questions. How do I apply it? How much? Inside or just around my labia?
Asked by Wesley Barth 6 months ago.
Ketoconazole is a safe but effective antifungal drug. It would be best to apply a thin layer directly to the affected area, and surrounding areas (including inside) to prevent spread and reccurence, as well as faster resolution. As with most antifungal drugs, ketoconazole may take a few days to see symptoms resolve and 1-2 weeks further application for a cure. Answered by Erika Scher 6 months ago.

I think that would have to be prescribed by a doctor, and if that's the case, it is to treat a specific condition. It should be safe to use as advised by a physician, and even more importantly, it will treat the condition it has been prescribed for. There may be some minor side effects, but you have to realize that by law something has to be listed as a side effect if it has ever happened to someone--the majority of people will never experience any side effects. I cannot think of ketaconazole being dangerous, particularly when used as directed. Answered by Roxanne Lupi 6 months ago.
Would 400mg of ketoconazole interact with the combination pill 7 days after taking it?
i took one dosage of ketoconazole totaling 400mg, would it interact with my combination birth control pill a week later?
Asked by Shakia Setlak 6 months ago.
Ketoconazole is eliminated in a bi-phasic manner. Somewhere between 10-15% is eliminated, renally, through urine -- with the rest through the intestinal tract (biliary). The biphasic action causes a halflife of 2hour for the initial 10hours, and 8 hours after this. All that aside this is a slowly eliminated drug. However after 4-7 half-lives one is safe from any interaction with contraindicated substances. At 7 days ~168hours or so have passed which exceeds this threshold, and the anti-fungal is eliminated. So, in short, -- It will not interact, it is eliminated from your system.. You can safely take your birth control now. Take care, Answered by Justin Balaam 6 months ago.

KETOCONAZOLE-CREAM treats poison ivy?
I had ringworm, now I have poison ivy and I'm wondering if I can use my extra KETOCONAZOLE-CREAM. I know that I 'can' but will it treat the poison ivy?
Asked by Elaina Davidoff 6 months ago.
Ketoconazole is an anti-fungal drug so it won't be able to treat your poison ivy. Remember poison ivy is a type of hypersensitivity reaction, type IV to be exact - contact dermatitis so the best approach is for you to use an anti-inflammatory cream to stop your immune system from over reacting to the oils from the poison ivy. OTC meds include benadryl cream, hydrocortisone 1-2% cream, and calamine lotion. Talk with your doctor/pharmacist for more info Answered by Drew Godown 6 months ago.
