FAQs

Q. What is the use of Ketomac?

Ketomac is used to control scaling, flaking and itching caused by dandruff. Dandruff is caused by excessive growth of Malassezia furfur, which is part of normal skin flora. It is also used to treat irregular white or brown patches which occur on the body and sometimes appear after being in the sun (tinea/pityriasis versicolor).

Q. How often should I use Ketomac?

If you are using it to treat dandruff, you should use it only twice weekly and if you are using it to prevent dandruff, then use it once weekly. Do not use Ketomac more often than directed.

Q. How should I apply Ketomac?

You should first wash your hair or affected area thoroughly with water. Then apply a small amount of Ketomac on the scalp. Massage properly to form lather. Leave it for 3-5 minutes, then thoroughly rinse with water. If you have long and thick hair, you can wash with your usual shampoo first and then use Ketomac.

Q. Should I stop using the steroid cream for dandruff if I have started Ketomac?

Do not stop using the steroid cream suddenly because this may flare up the dandruff. Instead, reduce the amount you use and gradually withdraw it over a period of 2-3 weeks.

Q. Can Ketomac affect vision if it gets into the eye while washing hair?

Be careful while washing your hair and do not let the shampoo get into the eye. However, if it accidentally enters the eye, do not worry and wash your eyes gently with water.

Q. What if someone accidentally swallows Ketomac?

Ketomac is meant for external use only and you should use it carefully so that it does not get into the mouth. Accidental swallowing is normally harmless but if you are worried, you should contact your doctor immediately.
