Kz 2 %W/V Description

KZ Lotion 50 ml is an antifungal medication used for treating skin fungal infections such as ringworm, jock itch, athlete’s foot, seborrheic dermatitis, and pityriasis. It contains Ketoconazole, which destroys fungal cell membranes, providing relief from symptoms like cracking, burning, scaling, and itching.

KZ Lotion is for external use only. Directions include washing and drying the infected area before applying avoiding contact with eyes, nose, and mouth. Shampoo, soap, and powder formulations are also available. Common side effects may include dry skin, itching, redness, or a burning sensation at the application site, typically resolving over time. Consult your doctor if side effects persist or worsen.

Pregnant or nursing individuals should consult a doctor before use. Caution is advised near flames as the lotion is flammable. Inform your doctor if you are using any steroidal creams before using KZ Lotion.
