CANESTEN 1% TOPICAL CREAM (Clotrimazole)
Canesten Cream is an antifungal medicine. It kills and prevents the growth of fungus. This relieves the symptoms caused by the infection. It may be used to treat infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, fungal nappy rash, and fungal sweat rash. You should keep using it for as long as it is prescribed even if your symptoms have gone. This will prevent the infection from coming back. Using this medicine as prescribed will relieve pain and itching and may help you feel more comfortable with your skin. Canesten Cream is for external use only. You should use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as that may cause increased side effects. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. The effects of this medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry and washing hands before and after treating the infection. If you have an athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.
BEFORE YOU USE THIS MEDICATION
Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use this medication. Dressings: Do not use dressings or bandages over clotrimazole cream unless recommended by your doctor. Diapers are not considered dressings because they allow air to contact the skin and are frequently changed. For external use only: Clotrimazole cream is for external use only and should not be taken by mouth. Hygiene: Fungal infections of the foot are often difficult to treat. Drying the skin after washing, particularly keeping the areas between the toes dry, and wearing cotton or wool socks to absorb moisture will help the skin to heal and keep the infection from returning. Nail infection: Clotrimazole is not to be used for infection of the nails. Contact your doctor if you have a fungal nail infection. Pregnancy: This medication should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while using this medication, contact your doctor. Breast-feeding: This medication may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using clotrimazole, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
HOW TO USE
Apply enough clotrimazole to cover the affected and surrounding skin areas, and rub in gently. Keep this medicine away from the eyes. When clotrimazole is used to treat certain types of fungus infections of the skin, an occlusive dressing (airtight covering, such as kitchen plastic wrap) should not be applied over the medicine. To do so may cause irritation of the skin. Do not apply an occlusive dressing over this medicine unless you have been directed to do so by your doctor. To help clear up your infection completely, it is very important that you keep using this medicine for the full time of treatment, even if your symptoms begin to clear up after a few days. Since fungus infections may be very slow to clear up, you may have to continue using this medicine every day for several weeks or more. If you stop using this medicine too soon, your symptoms.
