How Long For Nizoral Shampoo [Ketoconazole] To Work And Is Initial Breakout Possible?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, as per title:

If you have taken Nizoral shampoo [ketoconazole] how long did it take to work before you started to notice an improvement with your acne?

Did you have an initial breakout?

Do you think an initial breakout would be possible from Nizoral considering what ever the mechanisms are that help with acne etc.


God gave us everything we need; the earth to live on, animals to feast on, vegetables to make side dishes and fruit to be eaten in moderation.

The devil put grains, beats and sugarcane on the earth to tempt us.

For approximately 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago most of us strayed away from temptation but the devils influence grew stronger and eventually we swayed to his evil ways.

God new that those whose faith was strong would never fall to temptation so he punished those who took to the pleasures of grains and sugar by not giving us the ability to digest grains and making sugar poisonous, eventually leading to all kinds of health problems including acne.

But some wanted there cake and to eat it too, free of health problems, so they made a pact with the devil and sold their soul's for acne free skin.

We see these people consuming delicious breaded, dough based meals, baked goods and confectioneries but with crystal clear skin.

These people are walking with the devil!!

They are the spawn of satan!!

Paleo is the righteous path my children!!

Your faith must be strong!!

Do not fall to temptation!!

Nizoral shampoo treats the red bumps and white flakes induced by malassezia yeast. Nizoral doesn't treat acne, although both conditions create a similar appearance. The difference is that the red bumps induced by malassezia do not involve comedones, and you'll notice you have a lot of dandruff (previously invisible white flakes) once you start using Nizoral.

The active ingredient in Nozoral is ketoconanzole, which is somewhat effective, but climbazole is more effective as an active ingredient, and I suggest looking for Hegor 150 climbazole shampoo, which is available on eBay. Ketoconazole and climbazole slowly dissolve the fungal cell walls, but the yeast's hyphae stage creates a biofilm that is difficult to dissolve, so the treatment takes several months -- up to a year -- and you need to use antifungal products on a daily basis afterward.

You'll experience what appears to be an initial breakout when you begin to use an antifungal, because the biofilm had previously prevented your immune system from recognizing the fungal invader, until the fungal cells walls start to dissolve. That's why you'll notice more red bumps rather than fewer, when you first begin using an antifungal. Hang in there, and do not be dismayed.

I've had some success with this, hard to tell, but so far i think I'm happy. I'm using it every other day or so on a dry face for a couple minutes. Can't hurt right? Any tips for greatest efficacy?
