Nizoral Cream (Ketoconazole) is utilized to treat a range of skin infections including athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, certain kinds of dandruff, and a skin condition known as pityriasis (tinea versicolor). Pityriasis (tinea versicolor) is a fungal infection that causes a lightening or darkening of the skin of the neck, chest, arms, or legs.

Ketoconazole, the active ingredient in Nizoral Cream, is classified as an azole antifungal that operates by preventing the growth of fungus. This mechanism of action is crucial in combating and resolving various fungal skin infections.


  • Use Nizoral Cream only on your skin, as directed by your healthcare provider.
  • Clean and dry the affected area thoroughly before applying the cream.
  • Apply the cream to the affected skin and some surrounding areas, following your healthcare provider's instructions on frequency (usually once or twice daily).
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after applying the cream.
  • Use the medication regularly at the same time(s) each day for the prescribed duration.
