Can daily use of ketoconazole 2% shampoo as a body wash reduce in strength during long term use as a body wash for tinea versicolor ?
It's possible: I like for people to alternate therapies- letting them sit on the skin for 5 minutes or so in order to allow the medicated wash to take effect. Some over the counter remedies include selsun shampoo and ketoconazole. Oral medications can be used, but there is a risk of liver damage with those. ...Read more

How does selenium sulfide reduce tinea versicolor? Are there risks to long term use as a treatment?
Many Factors Involve: Chronic eczema is often treated with long term use of topical steroids. However, using them in this way requires frequent breaks and good follow up with your doctor to make sure you are not having side effects. It also depends a lot on the strength of the steroid and where you are putting them. Eczema requires a coordinated skin care plan of which steroids are a small part. See your doctor. ...Read more
How is selsun blue in comp. to prescription anti fungal ie ketaconazole for seborrheic Derm? I feel long term use can't be good of rx, where does selsun fit in?
Both work well.: They may even be used together. Individual response varies. You may want to try each of them for a few months and see how they compare. Ketoconazole is safe long term. Active ingredient in Selsun Blue is selenium sulfide - you may be able to buy a cheaper generic version. ...Read more
No.: There are many types of steroid creams all work for different stages of eczema or locations. "weak" steroid cream good for face ears and neck, for example. "strong" steroid cream suitable for chronic, thickend eczema. Sometimes, steroid creams loose their potency and become ineffective after a longterm usage. (there is debate why it's that). You'd better let your dermatologist decides what's best. ...Read more
Might not get to age: In pure or high ratios, it can explode and you'd age no more! in usual products it won't blow up - but, it is irritating to skin and is a carcinogen so i'd question using it. I've no idea what you look like, but i'd bet it's better than you think and that the "improvement" this stuff makes is less good than you think. Find people who'll "like you just the way you are"! the best way to stay young! ...Read more
Any DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS of long term (TOPICAL) isotretinoin/erythromtcin use on the skin? Like premature aging? Been using it on/off 11 yrs for acne.
I have never heard: of topical isotretinoin(that is accutane) do you mean tretinoin (or retin A)? Topical retinoic acid will not hurt and can help as it stimulates new collagen and thickens the epidermis. Topcial erythromycin is just a topical antibiotic. It won't age your skin but may stop working. Hope that helps ...Read more
Is it okay to use butenafine hydrochloride cream (1%) along with miconazole nitrate powder spray (2%) at the sametime for fungal treatment on groin?
Tinea versicolor cause and treatment??? Just applied an anti fungal cream "clotrigmarole cream usp1%"
TINEA VERSICOLOR: I CALL THIS A FRIENDLY FUNGOUS CONDITION. A KETOCONAZOLE CREAM AND SHAMPOO OFTEN WORKS WELL. IF YOU HAVE IT ON YOUR CHEST AND BACK, FOR EXAMPLE, WASH THOROUGHLY YOUR CHEST AND BACK, AND THEN AFTER YOU RINSE OFF, DRY AND APPLY THE CREAM AT BEDTIME. YOU MUST DO THIS FOR A FEW WEEKS. GOOD LUCK . . . ...Read more
Can you use any anti fungal stuff on any fungal infection? For example: could the spray you use on athletes foot be used to cure another fungal infection such as thrush?
Uh, which steroids?: See, there are many types of steroids. Corticosteroids are useful to calm inflammation. Mineralocorticoids are necessary for salt & mineral balance. Anabolic steroids are useful if you're deficient but if not supervised, can increase risk of heart disease, stroke, baldness, prostate enlargement, moobs (gynecomastia), loss of libido(!), etc. That's why regular testing is necessary to keep you optim. ...Read more
Can I use lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra antifungal cream 1% on my breast for the treatment of ringworm?
Sure: But this is the wrong question. By the way, clotrimazole, the generic, will do the same thing for less money. You can use it forever if you wish. "Ringworm" does not just happen. You caught it from a person or an animal and need to identify the source. Most people presenting to dermatologists with this diagnosis have something else and respond to a different therapy. A dermatologist is your best b ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
