Kenozole Dusting Powder general information

What is Kenozole Dusting Powder used for?

Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% is used as a topical treatment for fungal infections of the skin due to the Tinea fungus, which is a dermatophyte fungus also known as ringworm.  Tinea causes fungal infection in different parts of the body including ringworm of the foot, also known as Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), of the body (tinea corporis), of the groin (tinea cruris or jock itch), and of the scalp (tinea capitis).  Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% is also used to treat infection by the yeast fungus Malassezia, which causes Pityriasis versicolor, characterised by flaky discoloured patches that appear on the chest and back.  Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% is also effective against infection with the yeast fungus Candida, which causes cutaneous candidiasis, characterised by itchy red rash on various parts of the body, usually in warm, moist creased areas of skin, like under the arms and in the groin.  Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% is particularly useful for use on broken skin and if a drying effect is required.  It can also be used for dusting inside socks, shoes or clothing where there is direct contact with an infected area of skin.

How does Kenozole Dusting Powder work?

Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% contains ketoconazole, a synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal that is used to treat a variety of fungal infections of the skin.  Ketoconazole in Kenozole Dusting Powder 2% prevents growth of dermatophyte and yeast fungi by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells.  This results in altering the permeability of the fungal cell membrane causing it to become weakened, so that the cell contents leak out, which kills the fungus, preventing the infection from spreading and relieving symptoms caused by the fungal infection, including pain and inflammation.  When used as a topical antifungal, no detectable ketoconazole enters the blood, reducing risk of systemic side effects.

What does Kenozole Dusting Powder contain?

Kenozole Dusting Powder contains the active ingredient ketoconazole nitrate 2% (w/w), a synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal that is used to treat a variety of fungal infections.
