Ketomac cream: the new innovation of Antiseptic creams.


Ketomac cream is a small miracle of cosmetic science that does wonders to skin. Skin serves as a defensive barrier for our bodies and we must take care of it, even when it is just a scratch or it is a wound. But, it is important to note that if the wounds are different, they are to be treated differently and they take their own course of time to heal.

It is important to take care of infections as they are extremely dangerous and severe. When the skin breaks, it is prone to attacks by microorganisms who penetrate through the skin and cause irritation and inflammation of the skin.

Ketoconazole is an antifungal medication that prevents fungus from growing on the skin and it is used to treat fungal infections of the skin such as:

  • Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis; ringworm of the foot)
  • Ringworm of the body (tinea corporis)
  • Ringworm of the groin (tinea cruris; jock itch)
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • “Sun fungus” (tinea versicolor; pityriasis versicolor)
  • Yeast infection of the skin (cutaneous candidiasis)

The medicated ketomac cream should be used according to the prescription and one is strictly not supposed to stop the medication midway, even if the problem seemed to have faded away because it might cause opposite reactions. This might also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antifungal medication.

Ketoconazole cream in India is being widely used these days and prescribed by efficient dermatologists. The topical cream with a concentration of 2% is also used to treat s skin condition known as pityriasis (tinea versicolor), a fungal infection that causes a lightening or darkening of the skin of the neck, chest, arms, hands or legs. This is an anti-fungal medication that belongs to the same family of drugs as fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox), and miconazole (Micatin, Monistat).

The preferred room temperature to store the ketomac cream is 20 C to 25 C (68 F to 77 F). Ketoconazole works by harming the yeast and fighting the infection. It has to be applied topically once or twice a day, as prescribed. The area over which the cream has to be applied should be completely dry and clean. It is advised to apply sufficient amount of cream in the affected area and rub that area smoothly. It should not be covered or wrapped with any cloth or bandage and should be kept away from direct sunlight. The skin area should not interact with water for atleast three hours.

The dosage for the application of cream for cutaneous candidiasis, tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, or pityriasis versicolor are different for adults and children. The ketomac cream also has certain side effects such as
stinging, swelling, itching, irritation, dryness,
redness of the treated skin, etc.

There are many skin infections that are essentially treated by ketoconazole creams. The fungus in the infection produces egosterol that further develops fungus cell membranes. Here comes in the role of ketomac that gives targeted results and also prevent suct infections in future.
