About Ketoconazole

What is ketoconazole?

Ketoconazole is an azole antifungal medication of the class imidazole that is used to treat certain types of yeast or fungal infections such as chromomycosis, thrush (candidiasis), blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, ringworm, athlete’s foot, and others. Ketoconazole is not used to treat fungal infections of the finger or toenails, Cushing Syndrome, or prostate cancer. It is available only by prescription, and is recommended only when other antifungal treatments are not effective.

How do I take ketoconazole?

Ketoconazole is prescribed either in tablet form or as a topical cream or a shampoo. Take the tablet once a day, at the same time every day, with water or other approved liquid. Ketoconazole cream and shampoo are for use only on the skin and scalp. When using the cream, apply enough to cover the affected and immediately surrounding area, and gently massage it in. Wash your hands immediately after.

When using a ketoconazole shampoo, wet the scalp and apply the shampoo to the affected area, and gently massage the medicine to develop a foam. Leave the shampoo on the affected area for five minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water.

Do not let the shampoo or cream reach the eyes. If this happens, flush with plenty of water. Do not ingest the cream or shampoo.

What if I forget to take a dose of ketoconazole?

If you forget to take a scheduled dose of ketoconazole pills, or miss an application of its topical formulation, do so as soon as your remember and are able. However, if the time is near for the next scheduled dose or application, forego the missed one and resume the normal schedule. Do not take multiple doses or apply extra ketoconazole to compensate for what was missed.

What happens if I overdose on ketoconazole?

If an overdose of ketoconazole is suspected, contact Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222. If the individual has stopped breathing or lapsed into unconsciousness, call Emergency Services at 911. If signs of liver disease appear, contact your doctor immediately.
