Ketoconazole review by 52 year old male patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Ringworm/Pityriasis
Dosage & duration:   200mg taken 1 per day for the period of 14 days
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   Lamisil
Reported Results
Benefits:   The skin rash was better
Side effects:   I can not be sure it was from the medication but I had mild stomach upset
Comments:   I originally had lamisil cream to treat a pretty bad case of ringworm. After about 4 days the rash was spreading and so I went back and received oral Lamisil. I took that for 14 days and the rash was lighter but still there. The doctor then prescribed Ketoconazole and after 3 days the rash was significantly lighter. By the end of the prescription the rash was almost completely gone.
