It worked well. it reoccurs periodically and a few applications of a mixture of these two creams and its gone. a new doctor prescribed ketoconazole and said it work also. Should I use the new cream or stay with the old one?

Hello and welcome..

Yes ketoconazole also works...
Both are antifungals and both are equal effective while urea if the skin is dry,fissured and cracks.also used for dermatitis and eczema.
So if your effected area is drythen you can use urra along with ecokonazole if otherwise then ketocozale can be used..
Hope you'd understand.
Thanks
Bye
