Naftin vs Ketoconazole
These medications are both antifungals that can treat fungal skin infections such as Jock itch (tinea cruris), athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), and ringworm (tinea corporis).
Naftin Cream is a synthetic allylamine derivative while Ketoconazole is an imidazole antifungal agent.
These two drugs are available in cream and gel forms, but Ketoconazole is available in other forms like shampoo and foam.
Ketoconazole can treat other fungal infections such as “sun fungus” or tinea versicolor or pityriasis, a fungal infection of the skin that results in discolored patches or spots (could be lighter or darker than the surrounding skin) on the neck, arms, legs, and chest. It is also used to treat seborrheic dermatitis, as well as a yeast infection of the skin called cutaneous candidiasis.
