Theoretical Fungal Question

Say if my scalp and face is severely infected with fungus, e.g. itch, weeps and redness. And I take Nizoral tablets which kills the fungus by draining the cells on my face, would it cause my skin to dry out?

I'm asking this because my itch and redness has gone, but now i'm facing SEVERELY dry skin on my face only (not as flaky pre-nizoral, but more dryness!)

I would suggest you talk to a Dermatologist about this...Either that or possibly call your physician's office...Take care...
