Ketoconazole cream 2% not working on jock itch after 12 days of use, twice daily. What to do?

See doctor: It may not be "jock itch". it is not feasible to say what it may be, without examining you. Given the lack of response to a medication that should have taken care of a jock itch, it is time to see a doctor.

Ketoconazole cream allowed when pregnant?

Ketoconazole: It's best to check with your OB/GYN. Although ketoconazole is Pregnancy Class B - there are some uncertainties regarding fetal toxicity and the way the mother's body metabolizes the medication. Topical medications have been used in pregnancy, usually because of limited absorption. However I would first check with your OB/GYN. You don't want to risk it.

Part of my skin is gone & I'm still curing it with ketoconazole cream for many months it hasn't gone away I'm tired?

Part of my skin is gone & I'm still curing it with ketoconazole cream for many months it hasn't gone away I'm tired?

Questionable: If you have been treating your skin area that long it needs to be evaluated and changes made. Not sure what you mean by asking gone as if it is truly gone you need to see the provider about this. Have you seen a Dr. If not you really need to see your provider about this to see if can decide on a better treatment. Hope this helped.

Can I use ketoconazole cream on my face for folliculitis?

Can I use ketoconazole cream on my face for folliculitis?

Can, but not helpful: Folliculitis is a result of bacterial overgrowth/infections of your hair follicles...Typically just annoying rather than dangerous. It is basically a small zit. So, topical or oral acne medications can help. Ketoconazole is an antifungal cream (good for ringworms, jock-itch, athlete foot etc.) and will not do anything to the bacteria above. It won't do you harm, but won't do any good. Good luck.

Treat a fungal rash: Ketoconazole cream should help with a rash that is caused by fungus, such as athlete's foot, jock itch or ringworm. If the rash isn't caused by fungus, it won't work -so I think you need to send a pic to a doctor here on Health Tap or a doctor in person. Fungus will attack under certain circumstances -like moisture, uncontrolled blood sugars (poor diet), other weaknesses etc, so try to fix those.
