Why Ketazol?

Ketazol contains the widely used and recommended antifungal agent called ketoconazole, which is the mainstay in treatment of fungal skin infection and dandruff.

Firstly, Ketazol is useful in fungal infections on the scalp (dandruff), face, and chest (seborrheic dermatitis). Secondly, it treats sun fungus (small, discolored patches on the body). Thirdly, it is also used in the treatment of fungal infection between toes (Athlete’s Foot), groin area (Jock itch), and skin folds (Sweat Rash).

Ketazol contains ketoconazole 2%. Specifically, ketoconazole is clinically proven in reducing itching, scaling, and flaking. These are the most troublesome symptoms of dandruff and fungal skin infections.

Ketoconazole present in Ketazol starts showing improvement as soon as treatment begins. Thus, it provides a faster cure from fungal skin infections.

Ketazol is available as a cream, shampoo, and lotion. Cream and lotion are suitable for the treatment of fungal infection on the foot, groin area, or skin folds. Shampoo is suitable for treating dandruff and sun fungus. Thus, it caters to each type of fungal skin infection.

Ketazol cream, shampoo and lotion are convenient to use with less frequent application needed e.g. twice a week in the case of dandruff and twice a day in the case of other fungal skin infections. In other words, this ensures therapy compliance.

Finally, Ketazol is a quality product manufactured at a WHO approved facility.
