Introduction

Keticon Lotion belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. It is used to treat fungal infections of the skin. It works by killing the fungus that causes infections such as athlete’s foot, thrush and ringworm.

Keticon Lotion should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the maximum benefit from it. Do not use more than you need, it will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Skin infections will usually get better after 2 to 4 weeks. Do not use the medicine for longer than your doctor has told you to and let him or her know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. If you have Athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.

The most common side effects of using this medicine include application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching, and redness), dryness, peeling, or blistering of the skin. Occasionally it can cause thinning of your hair. These are not usually serious, but you should call your doctor if you think you might have a severe allergic reaction. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing, or breathing problems. Get emergency help if this happens. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In the case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water, and seek immediate medical attention.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. For pregnant or breastfeeding women, this cream should only be used if it is clearly needed.

FAQs

Q. What is Keticon Lotion cream used for?

Keticon Lotion 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 Keticon Lotion a steroid cream?

No, Keticon Lotion 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 Keticon Lotion cream?

The common side effects of Keticon Lotion 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 Keticon Lotion cream?

It is recommended that you use a mild steroid ointment like hydrocortisone cream/ointment in the morning and apply Keticon Lotion 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 Keticon Lotion cream to prevent skin sensitization.

Q. How should Keticon Lotion 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 Keticon Lotion cream?

You should use Keticon Lotion 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.
