Ketoconazole is contra-indicated in individuals who have shown hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Ketoconazole should be applied to affected areas once daily. Treatment should be continued for a sufficient period, at least until a few days after disappearance of all symptoms. The diagnosis and/or treatment should

(2 - 4 weeks), tinea corporis (3 - 4 weeks), tinea pedis (4 - 6 weeks).

rare circumstances, allergic local skin phenomena, such as contact dermatitis, have been associated with Ketoconazole cream or one of its components, namely sodium sulphite or propylene glycol.
Irritation may occur when Ketoconazole is used immediately after prolonged treatment with topical corticosteroids.
