Thank you for setting up this blog.
Today, my dermatologist told me to use Loprox instead of Nizoral.
He said Nizoral was “not helpful” with hair loss and that he had several cases were Nizoral had made things worst.
Do you think Loprox is better to use than Nizoral?
I think he doesn’t know what he talking about.
Loprox Cream and Lotion contains a synthetic, broad-spectrum, antifungal agent and is the treatment for ringworm or fungal infections. Nizoral (Ketoconazole) is used to treat a variety of fungal infections as well, including blastomycosis, candida infections of the skin or mouth (thrush), histoplasmosis, coccidiomycosis, and others. Nizoral is also used to treat fungal infections that have not responded to griseofulvin, another antifungal medication.
As your doctor is prescribing these medications, express your concerns to that doctor. I do not treat fungal infections, but rather send them to a dermatologist, so I am not the best one to answer your question. If you doubt your doctor’s competence, get another opinion.
