I had a fungal infection (ringworm) on the back of my hands and began using OTC 1% clotrimazole for 1 month. That didn't work and my doctor prescribed me 2% ketoconazole. Within 1 week, the infection subsided dramatically. Why is ketoconazole prescribed? Is it a stronger anti-fungal cream? Thanks.
Could you tell me the frequency you was using ketoconazole? Does it burn the skin like other creams?
