Consumption Of Medicinal Mushrooms Together With Ointment Mushroom Medication?
want to ask if you have taken keto azole tablets, then can you use ketonazole cream or not?
Hello Wahyu, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know that ketoconazole is an antifungal drug. This medicine can only treat skin itching caused by fungus, while if it is caused by other causes, this drug will not be effective for use. These drugs are also classified as hard drugs (drugs labeled with red circles) which are a class of drugs that you should not take without consulting directly to the doctor first and you should not buy without using a doctor's prescription. Ketoconazole (especially oral medication) has various side effects which can be dangerous if you drink it carelessly.
Therefore, you should first ascertain what is the cause of itching on your skin. Skin itching can indeed be caused by fungal infections of the skin, but it can also be caused by other things, for example:
bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections (scabies for example)
drug or food allergies
certain autoimmune diseases
insect bites or other small animals
and much more
If indeed you have not consulted a doctor directly, you should first consult your skin condition to the doctor (can go to a general practitioner or to a dermatologist). Follow your doctor's instructions regarding the use of the drug, including whether or not the use of ketoconazole cream is needed together with the drug therapy. If your doctor does not recommend using these two drugs together, you should not use them together. In general, the use of oral and topical antifungal drugs together is not necessary. As long as it can be treated with topical medication, the medicine to be chosen is topical medication (topical / cream / ointment).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
