For Dandruff: I used Ketoconazole over the counter strength. The irritation subsided after a few applications and after a few months, my dandruff was gone.

Nizoral Topical (ketoconazole) for Seborrheic Dermatitis: Nizoral is purchased over the counter and is much cheaper than Cloborex. Most importantly, it works best for me as a shampoo. Cloborex, T-Gel, and Nizoral were all suggested by my dermatologist as options. I tried each for a month and went back to Nizoral. It's reliable and affordable.

Xolegel (ketoconazole) for Seborrheic Dermatitis: The symptoms were improved, but not to the extent mentioned by other reviewers of this product. The gel was prescribed for use twice a day but at the end of each day had redness, itching, and scaling again.

For Tinea Corporis: Significant adverse drug reaction from use of Ketoconazole Cream 2 %. Package insert did not seem to suggest or identify other oral medications with which this drug might have a negative interaction.

For : Ingested internally small amount of ketoconazole cream on gums from lips application for herpes sore at the corner of mouth. Severe facial edema, itching, redness, descript of hives resulted. I administered epipen injection which relieved the reaction for 2-hours, but then symptoms returned requiring a course of prednisone to resolve. DO NOT ingest ketoconazole internally as this may result in an anaphylaxis event for predisposed individuals. EXTERNAL USE ONLY.

Nizoral Topical (ketoconazole) for Tinea Corporis: I've tried everything for my skin condition. My sister gave me a bottle of Nizoral. All it took is one application and my skin is cleared up.

Extina (ketoconazole) for Seborrheic Dermatitis: Best product I have used. Easy to use and my seborrheic dermatitis has totally cleared up. Doesn't leave the skin greasy or oily.

Xolegel (ketoconazole) for Seborrheic Dermatitis: The itching and scaling went away after one day of using this treatment. I am very pleased with this drug. I just hope that my condition doesn't become immune to it as it did with all the other OTC treatments I've used.
