For Dermatophytosis: "I started using treatments for a skin rash that suddenly started appearing on my body, after using a box which Is equal 10 tablets I realised the rashes where disappearing so I stop using it several days or weeks later the rashes had start coming again, now I started taking it and I'm having a pretty bad side effects but I can see is working but side effects on my liver and a little swollen of my tongue too. Should I stop using it and start using it in its correct way that's one tablet (200mg) a day for 6 months?"

Nizoral (ketoconazole) for Tinea Versicolor: "I have a severe case of tinea versicolor & I have tried several over-the-counter remedies as well as a couple prescriptions. I read the other comments on here was hopeful based on their experience, so I asked my doctor for it! WORST IDEA EVER!!!! I was also on a few other medications @ the same time for ADD & depression/anxiety. the Nizoral had a completely unexpected interaction & caused me to go crazy. no really- I mean hallucinating, talking to inanimate objects, thinking my car & trees & such things were ALIVE alive... absolutely out-of-my-mind nuts. it was terrifying. PLEASE!!!-- if you are going to try Nizoral & you're on any other medication I beg you to stay in CLOSE & HONEST communication with your doctor. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!"

For : "I only started this medication 6 hours a go from writing this and my ears are clearing up my neck is less stiff but the bladder is still a bit irritated so might take a bit longer for my bladder irritation. 3 Years a go I started suffering pain, jaw problems, neck, bladder, bowl, throat, tonsils removed, MRI on jaw clicking, I do have H pylori, Dry skin, Depression, anxiety, intestine problems and just all out hell. To find out it is possibly a fungi infection is WOW. WHY DON'T DOCTORS TEST FOR THIS MORE. Meds Oxycodone Methadone Para/Codeine Valium Xanax And the list goes on and overall this has helped me in 6 Hours then what has in 3 years. Post back in 2 weeks to let you know how it went."

Nizoral (ketoconazole) for Tinea Versicolor: "To be more effective Tinea versicolor has to be treated on the inside with the pills, and on the outside with the shampoo. The dermatologist informed me of this. "

Nizoral (ketoconazole) for Tinea Versicolor: "My son and I both have taken Nizoral twice a day for 6 days. It cleared the issue up completely in approximately one month. However, it seems to return after a few years."

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: "I have Lyme Disease so I got a yeast Infection from antibiotic usage. My yeast infection is nothing like you will find. Basically just feels like rug burn on the head of my penis. Unfortunately it rubs in my underwear when I walk around so its VERY ANNOYING. I was given Diflucan and it gave me head pressure so they gave Ketoconazole and its my second/third day on it. I have NOT seen any substantial improvements. Yes its helped but this should work faster."
