In this situation I have to take the oral ketoconazole, so stopping the medicine is not a choice. I know someone in this world has rid of this side effect before. When taking ketoconazole, I get rashes, patches of dry skin, and dry skin. The skin is only problem but it’s destroying my life. There has to be some cream or medication to make my skin normal again. While I continue to take oral ketoconazole, please help me figure this out. If it helps at all the oral ketoconazole is making my hair black.
