He told me to take 2 at the same time one day a month for 3 months. Has anyone else ever used this for Tinea Vesicolor? With the dosage, I'm wondering how long it will take for the rash to go away. Has anyone else ever taken dosages in the way I was told? Thanks all for your help!
Tinea versicolor is a long-term (chronic) fungal infection of the skin.
Oral ketoconazole is often prescribed but usually only for 10 days at a time. This dosage often has to be repeated throughout the year.
Have you had the infection for sometime? If so maybe your doctor wants to ensure that you get rid of it.
I use an OTC called NIZORAL (Ketoconazole)--get it at Walmart--which is sold as a antidandruff shampoo. I use it as a whole body wash... check it out on wikipedia... No sense taking it orally... Use it all over everyday and you will see wonders... I've suffered thru years of this problem... Sulfur and Salisylic acid are old school... Check it out ...
