DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Cutaneous candidiasis, tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, and tinea (pityriasis) versicolor: It is recommended that ketoconazole cream, 2% be applied once daily to cover the affected and immediate surrounding area. Clinical improvement may be seen fairly soon after treatment is begun; however, candidal infections and tinea cruris and corporis should be treated for two weeks in order to reduce the possibility of recurrence. Patients with tinea versicolor usually require two weeks of treatment. Patients with tinea pedis require six weeks of treatment.
If a patient shows no clinical improvement after the treatment period, the diagnosis should be redetermined.
Ketoconazole Cream, 2% is supplied in 15, 30, and 60 gram tubes.
Store at 20° and 25°C (68° and 77°F) [See USP Controlled Room Temperature].
