Xolegel Dosage

Available in the form of a skin gel, Xolegel is applied on the affected areas of the skin once daily for two weeks to treat seborrhea. This is the standard Xolegel dosage for everyone, regardless of your age or the severity of your skin condition. Make sure to avoid getting this medication in your eyes, nose, and mouth.

An Introduction to Dosing With Xolegel

There is only one standard dose of Xolegel® (ketoconazole gel). As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

What Is the Recommended Xolegel Dosage?

For seborrhea treatment, Xolegel is applied once a day for two weeks. It is possible that your healthcare provider might recommend repeat treatments, although it is unclear whether repeat treatments are beneficial; the prescribing information for Xolegel does not mention the possibility of more than one treatment. For many people, seborrhea tends to come and go, and it is possible that repeat treatments might be useful.
 
There are no limitations for where on the body the gel may be applied, except that the mucous membranes should be avoided. This means you should be careful to avoid the eyes, nose, mouth, and vagina.
