About Ketoconazole (Generic Xolegel)
How does it work?
Ketoconazole is a medicine that fights fungal infections by stopping the growth of fungi. It's like putting a stop sign in front of the fungi, preventing them from spreading so that infections can heal.
What does it treat?
Ketoconazole is a common dandruff treatment and fungal infection treatment for skin conditions like athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm. It treats these fungal infections by ridding the body of the specific fungi causing problems.
What forms does it come in?
Ketoconazole comes in different forms like dandruff shampoos, creams, foams, gels and oral medications. Topical medications are for fungal skin infections. Shampoos help with scalp issues like dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis). Pills work inside the body to fight fungal infections.
Ketoconazole vs. Xolegel
Ketoconazole is the generic version of the brand-name medication Xolegel. Ketoconazole can treat various fungal infections, while Xolegel specifically treats skin fungal infections.

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a fungal infections prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled.
