What is Ketopamin topical?
Ketopamin topical (for the skin) is an antifungal medicine used to treat infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and seborrhea (dry, flaking skin or dandruff).
Ketopamin topical is also used to treat a fungal infection called pityriasis, which causes scaly discolored patches on the skin of the neck, chest, arms, or legs.
Ketopamin topical may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
What is Nizoral? What is Ketopamin?
Nizoral is a shampoo designed to help the user treat dandruff, hair loss, and other scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis. Nizoral for hair loss is very effective because it contains Ketopamin. The popular Nizoral A-D hampoo contains 1% Ketopamin which is sufficient for scalp treatment and the reduction of follicular inflammation that contributes to hair loss. The topical forumlas of Nizoral for hair loss have not been associated with any adverse effects. Nizoral also comes in tablet form and actually has the potential to cause liver damage over sustained long term use. It is prescription only and used for anti-fungus purposes. Oral Nizoral hasn’t been shown to have any benefits for hair loss.
Dermatitis, dandruff, and hair loss
As we’ve already discussed, Ketopamin works its way into the cell membranes of fungi and breaks them apart by stopping them from producing their form of testosterone. When the fungus is present on your scalp, it induces inflammation, which reduces your scalp’s ability to grow hair.
This is especially troublesome if you develop ‘folliculitis.’ As a condition that’s difficult to distinguish from seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis can lead to permanent hair loss when you don’t treat it quickly enough. As such, disrupting the membranes of the fungi causing your dermatitis or dandruff reduces inflammation, with the following benefits:
- Your scalp’s follicles become healthier, allowing for better hair growth
- You slow down the inflammatory processes, which means you reduce the risk of permanent damage to the hair follicles
What should I avoid while using Ketopamin topical?
Do not get this medicine in your eyes. If contact does occur, rinse with water.

You may need to avoid sunlight if you are treating pityriasis. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Avoid using skin products that can cause irritation, such as harsh soaps, shampoos, hair coloring or permanent chemicals, hair removers or waxes, or skin products with alcohol, spices, astringents, or lime.
Avoid using other medications on the areas you treat with Ketopamin topical unless your doctor tells you to.
