Ketomac Cream

Ketomac cream is a formulation with a 2% concentration of Ketoconazole that can help restore your natural skin, fighting against fungi.

How Does Ketomac Cream Help You Fight Against Fungal & Yeast Infections?

Ketoconazole in Ketomac cream serves as an antifungal agent that can help eliminate yeasts and fungi by interfering with the cell membranes. It works by disrupting the production of ergosterol which causes holes in the fungal cell membrane. 

The cell membrane is essential for fungus to sustain on your skin as it filters unwanted substances from entering these cells and resists the inside dirt from spilling around. Ketomac cream can kill the fungi and remove the infection from the roots.
