Hello Al-Ghifary,


Thank you for the question.

White patches under the eyes do not always indicate phlegm or other fungal infections. It could also, these spots appear due to other reasons, such as seborrheic dermatitis, post-inflammatory hypopigmentation, impetigo, pityriasis alba, vitiligo, leprosy, albinism, and so on. Because of the various possible causes, it is not always the right white spot to be treated with antifungal drugs, including ketoconazole as you want to use.


As long as there are medical indications that do require it, there is no real problem using ketoconazole cream around the eyes, as long as it does not enter the eye. However, if there is no precise medical indication, for example if the white patches do not appear due to a yeast infection, then it is certainly not right for you to use this cream. Inappropriate use of ketoconazole cream risks causing a variety of side effects, including allergies, skin irritation, and several other systemic side effects in sensitive people.


The good thing, before giving any medicine, first check yourself to the doctor or dermatologist. With a direct examination, of course the doctor can give you the best treatment according to the cause. At home, you can overcome it first so that the spots do not spread, by:

Not holding, let alone slurp forcefully spotting that appears
Wash and wash your face diligently with the right cleansing soap, according to your skin type
Before your activity, first use sunscreen and moisturizer on your skin
Do not carelessly exchange toiletries and cosmetics with others

Hope this helps ...
