Extina Drug Information

Extina® (ketoconazole foam) is a medicine licensed to treat seborrhea in adults and adolescents as young as 12 years old. It comes as a foam that is applied on the affected areas of the skin twice daily for four weeks.
 
As a type of antifungal medication, Extina is thought to work by killing certain types of fungus that cause seborrhea. This can help treat seborrhea symptoms, such as:
 
  • Yellow, oily scales
  • Pimple-like bumps
  • Bright-red inflammation.
  •  
Before starting treatment with Extina, give your healthcare provider current information on any medications you are taking and discuss your medical history. This drug may not be safe for use in certain people, including those who have certain allergies or women who are pregnant or nursing.
