Frequently asked questions about Ketoconazole

Q. What is Forfora Cream cream used for?
Forfora Cream 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 Forfora Cream a steroid cream?
No, Forfora Cream is not a steroid cream. It is an anti-fungal medicine which belongs to the imidazole class of medicines. It works by killing the fungi or by preventing the growth of fungi that cause infection.
Q. What are the side effects of Forfora Cream cream?
The common side effects of Forfora Cream 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. Can I use a steroid cream along with Forfora Cream cream?
It is recommended that you use a mild steroid ointment like hydrocortisone cream/ointment in the morning and apply Forfora Cream 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, maintain at least a gap of 2 weeks before you apply Forfora Cream cream to prevent skin sensitization.
Q. How should Forfora Cream 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 Forfora Cream cream?
You should use Forfora Cream 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.
