Skin Infections caused by dermatophytes or yeasts, and which, by their location and their surface-limited, can be appropriately addressed using a topical agent (tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea manus, tinea pedis, candidiasis of the skin and pityriasis versicolor). Similarly, seborrheic dermatitis, a condition in which Pityrosporum plays a central role, can be treated with NIZORAL cream.
In the yeast infections for which one cannot apply a local treatment, oral forms of ketoconazole are indicated.
• Tinea pedis
For a mild infection, apply NIZORAL cream 2 times daily over the lesion for 1 week without interruption.
In the case of infections more serious or more extensive, we will continue the treatment for 2 to 6 weeks or it will go to another oral form.
• Other dermatophytosis (tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea manus and thrush, skin), and tinea versicolor:
Apply the cream 1 time per day on the lesion and make it penetrate into the skin by massaging gently with the fingertips. This treatment must be continued without interruption until a week after the complete disappearance of the lesion.
The duration of treatment varies from 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the location and extent of the lesion.
• Seborrheic dermatitis:
Apply the cream on the lesion 1 to 2 times per day, depending on the severity and extent of the injury
20 mg ketoconazole per gram of cream
