About Fungokill 2% Lotion

Fungokill 2% Lotion belongs to a class of drugs called 'antifungal' primarily used to treat fungal infections of the skin like ringworm, jock itch, athlete’s foot, seborrheic dermatitis (dry, flaky skin on the face, scalp, chest, upper back or ears) and pityriasis (a type of skin rash that causes scaly, discoloured patches on chest, back, legs and arms). Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the tissue and causes infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another).

Fungokill 2% Lotion contains Ketoconazole which works by damaging the fungal cell membranes that are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stop the leakage of cell contents. Thus, it kills fungi and yeast. 

Fungokill 2% Lotion is for external use only. Your doctor will advise you on how often you need to use Fungokill 2% Lotion based on your medical condition. Common side effects include dry skin, itching, redness or burning sensation at the application site. Most of these side effects of Fungokill 2% Lotion do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to ketoconazole, inform your doctor. If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, it is advised to consult a doctor before using Fungokill 2% Lotion. Avoid smoking or going near naked flames as Fungokill 2% Lotion may catch fire and burn easily. If you are using any steroidal cream, lotion or ointment, inform your doctor before using Fungokill 2% Lotion to adjust the dose.
