Is using ketoconazole shampoo the same as is oral? Does it have lots of side effects? Cancer? What if I want kids one day? Any other fungus safe shamp

Shampoo is safer: Ketoconazole shampoo is much safer than taking ketoconazole by mouth. This is because, when ingested, many of your body systems and organs are exposed to the drug. When you’re using shampoo, only your skin is exposed. Absorption of the drug by the skin is minimal, so there typically are not side effects. The shampoo should not affect your risk of cancer of ability to have children. ...Read more

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

The: The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as I can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure.
Take care. ...Read more

Earlier I'd used Nizoral, (ketoconazole) 8x shampoos fr dandruff. Now a days they are not showing any effect. I was suggested Tony&Guy. Is it good? If not, pls suggest

Have you tried: A coal tar shampoo such as T/Gel? These can be very effective, especially when the other shampoos are no longer working. Alternatives (if you have not tried them) are selenium sulfide or salicylic acid shampoos. As with many long term treatments, it is usually best to alternate use of different types so that the scalp does not develop a resistance (or tachyphylaxis) to a single agent. Good luck! ...Read more
