Nizoral cream general information

What is Nizoral cream used for?

Nizoral cream 2% is a topical medication used to treat a variety of fungal infections of the skin in several parts of the body including:
  • Athlete's foot (tinea pedis; ringworm of the foot)
  • Ringworm of the body (tinea corporis)
  • Ringworm of the groin (tinea cruris; jock itch)
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Tinea versicolor known as “sun fungus” (pityriasis versicolor)
  • Candida infection of the skin (cutaneous candidiasis)

How does Nizoral cream work?

Nizoral cream 2% contain ketoconazole, a synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal agent that specifically kills the fungus by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells. Nizoral cream 2% weakens the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out, which kills the fungus, preventing the infection from spreading and relieving symptoms caused by the infection, such as rash, itching, scaling and inflammation.

Nizoral cream also contains propylene glycol, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, sorbitan stearate, polysorbate, isopropyl myristate, sodium sulphite and purified water.
