Patient Reviews: How Clotrimazole Has Made a Difference

What is Clotrimazole 1% w/w cream?

Clotrimazole cream, which goes by the brand name Canesten, belongs to a group of antifungals known as imidazoles.

Clotrimazole cream is used for treating fungal skin infections like ringworm and jock itch. It attacks the fungi directly to clear the infection.


Since ringworm is a fungal infection on your skin, the recommended treatment to treat it on your body is an antifungal cream like Clotrimazole. Clotrimazole attacks the fungi that are causing your ringworm infection to allow your skin to heal. Clotrimazole antifungal cream is simple to apply and has enough power to penetrate into your skin without being unnecessarily harsh to relieve your symptoms.

Jock Itch:

If you have jock itch, it's essential you treat it right away to keep it from spreading to other areas of your body and keep it from becoming worse. An antifungal product like Clotrimazole will treat jock itch effectively and relieve your uncomfortable symptoms.

How Does Clotrimazole Cream Work?

Clotrimazole kills yeast and fungal infection by preventing the cell's ability to produce a substance called ergosterol, which is crucial to their survival.

Without ergosterol, the structure of the cells becomes weakened and the contents of the cell spill out, thus killing the cell.

How Do I Use Clotrimazole Cream?

Your doctor will let you know the dose of Clotrimazole Cream to use and for how long. If you've been provided with a prescription, the dose will also be added to the medicine label.

Always use Clotrimazole as prescribed by your doctor.

If you bought this medicine without a prescription, be sure you read and follow the directions closely.

To use Clotrimazole skin cream:

  1. Pierce the tube seal before using by putting the cap upside down over the end of the tube and pressing.
  2. Thoroughly wash your hands before applying the cream. This will keep the infection from spreading.
  3. Apply Clotrimazole evenly and thinly to the affected area, two or three times a day, and rub it in gently.
  4. Squeeze the length of cream out onto your finger.
  5. Be sure to apply the cream to all skin areas with fungal infection.

Do not rub Clotrimazole cream in vigorously, as this can irritate your skin.

Avoid applying the cream to areas of healthy skin.

Always wash your hands after you use Clotrimazole to help prevent the spread of the infection to other body areas.

Use a separate towel to dry your hands than other individuals until your infection clears. This will prevent you passing the infection on to others.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I forget to take Clotrimazole when I should?

Apply the cream as soon as you remember and continue on with your treatment regimen.

What should I do if I take too much Clotrimazole?
