What is Ketoconazole?

Ketoconazole belongs to the class of antifungal medications known as azole antifungals. Azole antifungals are a group of drugs used to treat various fungal infections.

Uses of Ketoconazole

Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication prescribed to treat skin, hair, mucous membranes, and other fungal infections.

This medication should initially be taken by mouth 200-400 mg/day to manage fungal infections. Lotion dosage forms are also prescribed for managing fungal infections with the tablets. Take the medications as prescribed for maximum effectiveness.
