FAQs

Q. What is Keto cream used for?

Keto cream is used to treat skin infections which may appear on the feet (athlete’s foot), in the groin area (jock itch) or between skin folds (sweat rash infected with a yeast infection “thrush”). It is also used for candida infections of skin and nails. The cream rapidly relieves the itching caused due to these fungal infections.

Q. Is Keto a steroid cream?

No, Keto is not a steroid cream. It is an anti-fungal medicine and belongs to the imidazole class of medicines. It works by slowing the growth of the fungi that cause infection.

Q. What are the side effects of Keto cream?

The common side effects of Keto cream are application site burning, redness and itching. The application site may also develop some uncommon side effects such as discomfort, dryness, bleeding, severe allergic reactions, urticaria or hives, rash, skin exfoliation, sticky skin, prickling sensation, or inflammation.

Q. For how long should I leave Keto on my face?

In case of seborrheic dermatitis, you may use Keto on the face. After applying Keto on your face, do not wash it with water for at least 3 hours.

Q. Can I use a steroid cream along with Keto cream?

It is recommended that you use a mild steroid ointment like hydrocortisone cream/ointment in the morning and apply Keto cream in the evening. You can then stop using the steroid cream gradually over 2-3 weeks. But, if you have used a potent corticosteroid for seborrheic dermatitis, let 2 weeks elapse before you apply Keto cream to prevent skin sensitization.

Q. How should Keto cream be applied?

Wash the affected area thoroughly with water and then dry it. Apply a thin layer of the cream on the affected area. Wash your hands carefully (until and unless your hands are also affected) after applying the cream. This will prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the body or other people.

Q. For how long do I need to apply the Keto cream?

You should use Keto cream for as long as advised by your doctor. Generally, it is to be used for 2-4 weeks for jock itch and sweat rash and 2-6 weeks for athlete’s foot. Do not stop using it even if your symptoms have disappeared because the infection may reappear if not properly treated.
