Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
You can get Keton soap-2% w/v or Denon soap, Denzy soap, etc. 2% Ketoconazole lotion is also available which will be equally effective. You need to use the soap or gel for at least 2 weeks continuously to avoid any recurrences.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The dark portions of the skin are also likely to clear off over next 4-5 weeks once the infection subsides.
Hope my answer is helpful.

I got a doctor prescription to use this denzy soap n lamisil cream for the affected areas... is that to be done one after the other or can be done at anytime?

You can use the soap twice a day and apply the cream in the morning and before going to bed. It is necessary to use these two one after the other.

Thank you... it says to use gauze when going to bed after applying the lamisil cream. Is it compulsory?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Praveen Tayal 6 hours later
Using a gauze is not necessary.
You can apply a thin layer of the cream after cleaning the area with soap.
Best regards.
