INTRODUCTION

Canesten Cream contains Clotrimazole used to treat fungal skin infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, fungal nappy rash (in babies) and fungal sweat rash. It can also be used to treat irritation of the vulva (external thrush) or irritation at the tip of the penis (penile thrush). External thrush is a common fungal infection caused by the aggravation of the fungi, which usually lives harmlessly in the vagina or vulva.

Clotrimazole works by killing the fungus which is causing the infection. Along with the treatment, try to keep the infected area clean by washing it daily. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor for advice before using. Your doctor will decide whether you should use this medicine or not.
