Nizoral (ketoconazole) is an antifungal medication. Fungi are organisms normally found on the skin and in moist areas of the body. When the skin is injured or chronically moistened, or normal bacteria flora of the body are altered due to prolonged antibiotic treatment, fungus can proliferate to cause inflammation of the skin or moist body areas.
Nizoral may also be marketed as: Extina, Fungoral, Ketoconazole, Ketoderm.
