Ketoconazole Pill, Cream, Gel & Foam For Mpb

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

On the Wikipedia site for Nizoral http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nizoral

 

It mentions the following which I thought was interesting:

 

Ketoconazole can be prescribed as a 200-mg pill, a 2% cream, a 2% gel,a 2% foam,or 2% shampoo for the treatment of dandruff or seborrhoeic dermatitis, or as a 1% over-the-counter shampoo (Nizoral).

 

Has anyone heard of people using the pill, cream, gel or foam? As this would be left on the scalp I wonder if it would have deeper scalp penetration and have a better effect on MPB and DHT?

 

I also found the following on http://www.drugs.com/xolegel.html

 

Ketoconazole topical is available with a prescription under the brand name Nizoral in 2% cream and shampoo formulations and under the brand name Xolegel as a 2% gel. Other brand or generic formulations may also be available. Ask your pharmacist any questions you have about Xolegel, especially if it is new to you.

 

Nizoral 2% cream

 

Nizoral 2% shampoo (red-orange liquid)

 

Xolegel 2% gel-2 gram or 15 gram tube

 

Any views would be welcomed...

 

Best, Ian

There was a small study into the effectiveness of ketoconzole cream - it only enrolled 6 men but the results were encouraging.

Posters on this forum turned up a whole range of Nizoral studies and info...

Seems like there is a foam too. Does anyone know how to get hold of it..?

 

Maybe a ketoconzole leave-on product would be more effective than the nizoral shampoo, and better absorbed..

I checked out the links and been doing some other researching.

 

It seems like there are 2 Ketoconzole foam products: Extina (from US) and Ketomousse (Italy), but can't seem to find anywhere that sells them...

 

This could be an exciting development as studies support the effectiveness of 2% Nizoral, which is also one of the big 3 we all read about!

 

As both products are leave-on, this could mean a deeper penetration and stronger anti-DHT effect against MPB...

 

Let me know if anyone knows anymore, especially where you can buy.

 

Ta v.much
