Product details

What is Canesten Thrush External Cream

Canesten Thrush External Cream relieves irritation of the vulva (vulvitis) which is caused by vaginal thrush (candidiasis).

Although this cream provides relief from the external irritation caused by vaginal thrush, it cannot treat any internal (vaginal) cause of the infection. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend a treatment for this.

Only use this product if you have been previously diagnosed by your doctor as having vaginal thrush.

Some women suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush. To reduce the frequency of these attacks, the sexual partner’s penis can be treated with this cream to prevent re-infection, even if they have no symptoms of thrush.

The active substance in Canesten Thrush External Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called azoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of infections such as vaginal thrush.

Information about vaginal thrush

Vaginal thrush (candidiasis) is a common infection that most women suffer from at some time in their lives and is not caused by lack of personal hygiene.

Thrush is caused by a yeast (fungus) called Candida which lives harmlessly in the vagina and other parts of the body, without you even noticing it. However, the natural balance that keeps Candida under control can be upset by many factors such as hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, perfumed soaps, bath additives and tight clothing.

If the natural pH balance is altered, the level of yeast increases and can develop into a thrush infection-causing any of the following symptoms: persistent burning and/or itching around the vagina and vulva, redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva and a whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina. Not everybody who has thrush has all these symptoms; you may have only one of them.

How to avoid future recurrences of thrush

✓ Wear cotton knickers and loose clothing.

✓ Wash daily.

✓ After going to the toilet, wipe yourself from the front to back as a thrush infection may be transferred from the bowel.

✓ Change your sanitary protection regularly.

✗ Try to avoid wearing tights, nylon knickers and close-fitting jeans.

✗ Try to avoid washing with perfumed soaps or using vaginal deodorants.

✗ Do not wash or rub yourself hard with sponges or flannels and avoid hot baths with strong perfumed oils

If you are still worried or have any questions about the symptoms or the treatment of thrush, do not hesitate to ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

How to use Canesten Thrush External Cream

Women:

If Canesten Thrush External Cream has been prescribed for you by your doctor, follow any instructions he/she may have given you. If you purchased this product without a prescription, follow these directions closely:

  • To treat the itching and soreness of the vulva (vulvitis), the cream should be thinly and evenly applied to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day and smoothed in gently. A product to treat the internal (vaginal) infection should be used at the same time.

Treatment should be continued until symptoms of the infections disappear. Consult your doctor if the symptoms of your infection do not improve within seven days of finishing treatment for the internal infection.

Treating your sexual partner:

  • If your sexual partner is treated with this cream, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2 or 3 times a day for up to two weeks.

    What is Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream?

    Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream is a medicine which is used to treat inflamed sweat rash or Athlete’s Foot.

    The cream contains the following ingredients:

    • Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild ‘topical steroid’ which reduces inflammation, swelling, redness and itching of the skin.
    • Miconazole nitrate is an antifungal which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present.

    Sweat rash (candida intertrigo, or ‘thrush’ of the skin folds) is a sore, itchy red rash found in areas where the skin rubs together, e.g. below or between the breasts, underarms, tops of legs or the groin or other skin areas.

    Athlete’s Foot is a fungal skin infection causing soreness, itching and flaking between the toes or on the soles or sides of the feet.

    How do you catch Athlete’s Foot?

    It’s extremely infectious so anyone can pick it up, especially people sharing communal changing rooms and showers.

    Once the fungal spores have been transferred onto the feet, they thrive in the warm, moist areas between the toes.

    The skin soon becomes inflamed and itchy with flaking or cracking occurring. The infected flakes of skin are then shed onto the floor or into the socks and shoes by walking or friction.

    Someone else will be easily infected if they step on these flakes, or if they share towels or footwear with someone who has already got Athlete’s Foot.

    What is more, even if you’ve already got rid of your Athlete’s Foot, it’s very easy to re-infect yourself. The spores can live on or in your shoes or socks and if you don’t change them regularly, or treat them with antifungal powders or spray powders, the Athlete’s Foot soon returns.

    How to prevent re-infection

    If you want to avoid the vicious circle of re-infection, here are a few helpful hints.

    • Spray inside your shoes and socks with fungicidal powder before putting them on.
    • Don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. This helps reduce the build-up of sweat which provides the moisture on which the fungus thrives.
    • Avoid synthetic footwear. Choose cotton socks and leather shoes which allow your feet to breathe.
    • Avoid sharing towels or footwear.
    • Avoid walking barefoot in changing rooms.
    • Dry thoroughly between your toes and keep toenails short as this reduces the number of places fungi can grow. 

    How to use Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream

    • For topical use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area of skin.
    • Do not use more than the stated dose shown in the table.

    How to apply Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream

    • Wash the infected area and dry it well. As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.
    • Apply the cream onto the infected area and surrounding skin.
    • Unless the infected skin is on your hands, wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people. Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.
    • It is preferable to wear cotton underwear if it is likely to come into contact with the cream, as the cream may damage some synthetic materials.

    Adults and children aged 10 years and over: Put a small amount of the cream on the affected area twice daily. Rub it in gently until the cream has disappeared.

    What does Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream contain

    The active ingredients in 1 g of Hydrocortisone Cream are: Miconazole nitrate 20 mg and Hydrocortisone acetate equivalent to 10 mg of hydrocortisone.

    What is Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream?

    Canesten Hydrocortisone is used to treat athlete’s foot and fungal sweat rash when there are additional symptoms of inflammation (such as swelling, redness and itching).

    Canesten Hydrocortisone treats the fungal skin infection and reduces the swelling and itching caused by it.

    The active substances in Canesten Hydrocortisone are clotrimazole and hydrocortisone acetate. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles, which destroy the fungi and some bacteria that cause skin infections. Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild steroid which reduces swelling, redness and itching associated with inflammation of the skin.

    What are fungal infections?

    Fungal infections are very common and affect many people. Two of the most common fungal skin infections include athlete’s foot and sweat rash.

    There are two main types of fungal infection:

    • The tinea group, also known as dermatophytes.
    • The candida group, also known as yeasts.

    The tinea group includes athlete’s foot which is easily spread by contact. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot usually lives harmlessly on our skin and in our environment. The natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as damp, moist conditions. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty. Since this fungus is contagious, it can also often be picked up in changing rooms. The main symptom is an itchy, scaly and irritating rash.

    The candida group can be responsible for conditions such as sweat rash. Sweat rash can appear anywhere on the body but is more likely to occur where folds of skin rub against each other, such as: under the breasts, under arms, around the groin and on the back. Candida is a yeast-like fungus that usually lives harmlessly on our skin. However, the natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as sweating, tight or synthetic clothing and cosmetic preparations such as bath additives. When levels of the yeast increase, the skin can develop the following symptoms: persistent burning and itching, soreness and a variety of patches or blemishes as well as a softened and soggy appearance.

    How to use Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Canesten Hydrocortisone should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas twice daily and rubbed in gently. Approximately 1cm of cream per application should be enough.
    • Do not cover the area being treated with a dressing or bandage.
    • As with all products containing hydrocortisone, you should wash your hands immediately after applying the cream.

    The symptoms of a skin infection, such as itching or soreness should improve within a few days of treatment although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If the symptoms persist or do not start to improve after seven days, consult your doctor.

    You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

    • Although the infected area will itch, try not to scratch. Scratching will damage the surface of the skin and cause the infection to spread further.
    • Keep the affected skin areas clean.
    • Pay particular attention to drying the skin, but avoid excessive rubbing.
    • Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.
    • Always wash your hands after treating the infection to prevent it from spreading.

    If you have athlete’s foot:

    • Remember to dry the skin between the toes thoroughly.
    • Wash your socks, stockings and tights thoroughly in hot water to remove any shed skin or fungal spores.
    • Change your footwear daily if possible.

    What does Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream contain?

    The active substances are clotrimazole and hydrocortisone acetate. Each gram of cream contains 10mg clotrimazole and 11.2mg hydrocortisone acetate (equivalent to 10mg hydrocortisone).

    What is Fluconazole Fungal Infection Capsule?

    This medicine contains Fluconazole, which belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. These act to treat infections caused by fungi.

    The medicine can be used to treat thrush (vaginal candidiasis). It may also be used by the woman’s sexual partner to treat associated penile thrush (candidal balanitis).

    Thrush is a common infection caused by a yeast (or fungus), which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it.

    However, in certain circumstances, it may develop into an infection in the vagina and symptoms may spread to the surrounding area. The symptoms may include one or more of the following:

    • Itching of the vagina and surrounding area (the vulva)
    • Redness and swelling of the tissues of the vagina and vulva
    • Soreness of the vagina and vulva
    • White non-smelling discharge from the vagina

    Thrush may be aggravated by sexual intercourse, but it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, sometimes thrush can be passed to your partner through sexual intercourse.

    If your partner has penile thrush, he may have one or more of the following symptoms:

    • Soreness and redness of the penis
    • Tightness of the foreskin
    • A white non-smelling penile discharge

    What is the recommended dosage for Fluconazole?

    • Check the foil is not broken before use. If it is, do not take the capsule.
    • Adults aged 16 to 60 years: Take one capsule once only.
    • Swallow the capsule whole with water.
    • Do not give to children under 16 years, or take if you are an adult of 61 years or older unless your doctor tells you to.
    • Do not take more than the amount recommended above.
    • If symptoms do not go away within seven days, talk to your doctor.
    • If your symptoms worsen at any time, talk to your doctor.
    • If symptoms clear up but then return after seven days, you can take another capsule, unless you had an allergic reaction the first time.

    What is in this medicine

    The capsule contains Fluconazole 150 mg which is the active ingredient.

    What is Eumovate Eczema and Dermatitis Cream 0.05%?

    Eumovate is used for the short-term treatment and control of patches of red, itchy skin caused by eczema and dermatitis. The cream stops the skin’s over-reaction to the triggers that cause skin flare-ups, such as eczema or dermatitis. The active ingredient is clobetasone butyrate, a topical corticosteroid to control skin inflammation. The cream base also has moisturising properties.

    When can I use Eumovate Cream?

    Eumovate cream contains a steroid that reduces inflammation and flare-ups of psoriasis or eczema, often associated with swelling, itching, redness and irritation.

    What is eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis?

    Eczema is a dry skin condition which makes skin feel itchy, dry and irritated. Dermatitis is a sort of inflammation triggered when the skin comes in contact with something irritable, like harsh additives or disinfectants. Psoriasis is characterised by flaky, red skin patches covered in silver scales, which may be sore and itchy. Flare-ups of eczema and psoriasis may involve:

    • Dry skin
    • Redness
    • Itching
    • Blisters
    • Cracked skin
    • Inflammation

    Managing eczema and dermatitis

    Skin specialist advice - Skin specialists often advise people with eczema or dermatitis to use emollient (moisturising) skin products, including creams and bath oils, to keep moisture in the skin. This can make your skin more resistant to flare-ups. Avoid using soap and heavily scented products.

    If a rash comes back - Sometimes people with dermatitis find their rash soon comes back after treatment or never disappears completely. This is often because they are still in contact with their trigger, i.e. what causes the reaction.

    Common triggers of eczema and dermatitis include:

    • Jewellery, including earrings or studs (especially gold-plated earrings)
    • Coins
    • Watch buckles, metal straps or the metal back of a watch
    • Metal studs or fastenings on jeans, bras or underwear.

    All of these have a metal in them called nickel, which is a very common trigger. If you react badly to nickel, all of the triggers in the list could be a problem. So, if you’ve reacted badly to one of the common triggers, you’ll need to watch out for the other common triggers. 

     Other common triggers of eczema and dermatitis include:

    • In the home: such as plasters, furniture polish, varnishes, rubber gloves or elastic in clothes
    • In substances you use at work, such as glues, oils, lubricants or cement
    • In the garden: certain plants and weeds, gardening gloves.

    How to use Eumovate Cream

    • Adults and children 12 years and over: Use the cream once or twice daily for up to 7 days.
    • Wash and dry your hands.
    • Squeeze out the correct amount of cream onto your index finger.
    • Half a fingertip will cover a patch of skin the same size as the palm of your hand.
    • Gently rub cream into the skin you are treating once or twice a day.
    • Wash your hands again (unless it is your hands you are treating).

    How much Eumovate Cream to use

    • Squeeze out the cream along the top of your index finger
    • Squeeze the cream halfway to your fingertip from the crease in your finger. This will cover a patch of skin the same size as the palm of your hand.
    • Use the fingertip unit as a guide. For smaller areas, use a smaller amount. This cream is not meant to treat large areas.
    • If you use too much of the cream by mistake, don’t worry – but try to keep to the fingertip unit.
    • Half a fingertip will cover a patch of skin the same size as the palm of your hand.

    Important information about Eumovate

    Eumovate contains a moderate steroid and should only be used for short-term use (maximum one week). Thin layers of Eumovate must be applied, as steroids thin the skin. Eumovate cannot be applied to infected, oozing skin or open wounds. If the condition does not improve or worsens after using Eumovate, then treatment should be discontinued, and you should consult your doctor. Eumovate must not be applied to the genital or facial regions.

    What is Fluconazole Fungal Infection Capsule?

    This medicine contains Fluconazole, which belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. These act to treat infections caused by fungi.

    The medicine can be used to treat thrush (vaginal candidiasis). The woman’s sexual partner may also use it to treat associated penile thrush (candidal balanitis).

    Thrush is a common infection caused by a yeast (or fungus), which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it.

    • Itching of the vagina and surrounding area (the vulva)
    • Redness and swelling of the tissues of the vagina and vulva
    • Soreness of the vagina and vulva
    • White non-smelling discharge from the vagina

    Thrush may be aggravated by sexual intercourse, but it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, sometimes thrush can be passed to your partner through sexual intercourse.

    If your partner has penile thrush, he may have one or more of the following symptoms:

    • Soreness and redness of the penis
    • Tightness of the foreskin
    • A white non-smelling penile discharge

    What is the recommended dosage for Fluconazole?

    What is Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream?

    Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream is a medicine which is used to treat inflamed sweat rash or Athlete’s Foot.

    The cream contains the following ingredients:

    • Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild ‘topical steroid’ which reduces inflammation, swelling, redness and itching of the skin.
    • Miconazole nitrate is an antifungal which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present.

    Sweat rash (candida intertrigo, or ‘thrush’ of the skin folds) is a sore, itchy red rash found in areas where the skin rubs together, e.g. below or between the breasts, underarms, tops of legs or the groin or other skin areas.

    Athlete’s Foot is a fungal skin infection causing soreness, itching and flaking between the toes or on the soles or sides of the feet.

    How do you catch Athlete’s Foot?

    It’s extremely infectious so anyone can pick it up, especially people sharing communal changing rooms and showers.

    Once the fungal spores have been transferred onto the feet, they thrive in the warm, moist areas between the toes.

    The skin soon becomes inflamed and itchy with flaking or cracking occurring. The infected flakes of skin are then shed onto the floor or into the socks and shoes by walking or friction.

    Someone else will be easily infected if they step on these flakes, or if they share towels or footwear with someone who has already got Athlete’s Foot.

    What is more, even if you’ve already got rid of your Athlete’s Foot, it’s very easy to re-infect yourself. The spores can live on or in your shoes or socks and if you don’t change them regularly, or treat them with antifungal powders or spray powders, the Athlete’s Foot soon returns.

    How to prevent re-infection

    If you want to avoid the vicious circle of re-infection, here are a few helpful hints.

    • Spray inside your shoes and socks with fungicidal powder before putting them on.
    • Don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. This helps reduce the build-up of sweat which provides the moisture on which the fungus thrives.
    • Avoid synthetic footwear. Choose cotton socks and leather shoes which allow your feet to breathe.
    • Avoid sharing towels or footwear.
    • Avoid walking barefoot in changing rooms.
    • Dry thoroughly between your toes and keep toenails short as this reduces the number of places fungi can grow. 

    How to use Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream

    • For topical use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area of skin.
    • Do not use more than the stated dose shown in the table.

    How to apply Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream

    • Wash the infected area and dry it well. As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.
    • Apply the cream onto the infected area and surrounding skin.
    • Unless the infected skin is on your hands, wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people. Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.
    • It is preferable to wear cotton underwear if it is likely to come into contact with the cream, as the cream may damage some synthetic materials.

    Adults and children aged 10 years and over: Put a small amount of the cream on the affected area twice daily. Rub it in gently until the cream has disappeared.

    What does Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream contain

    The active ingredients in 1 g of Hydrocortisone Cream are: Miconazole nitrate 20 mg and Hydrocortisone acetate equivalent to 10 mg of hydrocortisone.

    What is Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream?

    Canesten Hydrocortisone is used to treat athlete’s foot and fungal sweat rash when there are additional symptoms of inflammation (such as swelling, redness and itching).

    Canesten Hydrocortisone treats the fungal skin infection and reduces the swelling and itching caused by it.

    The active substances in Canesten Hydrocortisone are clotrimazole and hydrocortisone acetate. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles, which destroy the fungi and some bacteria that cause skin infections. Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild steroid which reduces swelling, redness and itching associated with inflammation of the skin.

    What are fungal infections?

    Fungal infections are very common and affect many people. Two of the most common fungal skin infections include athlete’s foot and sweat rash.

    There are two main types of fungal infection:

    • The tinea group, also known as dermatophytes.
    • The candida group, also known as yeasts.

    The tinea group includes athlete’s foot which is easily spread by contact. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot usually lives harmlessly on our skin and in our environment. The natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as damp, moist conditions. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty. Since this fungus is contagious, it can also often be picked up in changing rooms. The main symptom is an itchy, scaly and irritating rash.

    The candida group can be responsible for conditions such as sweat rash. Sweat rash can appear anywhere on the body but is more likely to occur where folds of skin rub against each other, such as: under the breasts, under arms, around the groin and on the back. Candida is a yeast-like fungus that usually lives harmlessly on our skin. However, the natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as sweating, tight or synthetic clothing and cosmetic preparations such as bath additives. When levels of the yeast increase, the skin can develop the following symptoms: persistent burning and itching, soreness and a variety of patches or blemishes as well as a softened and soggy appearance.

    How to use Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Canesten Hydrocortisone should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas twice daily and rubbed in gently. Approximately 1cm of cream per application should be enough.
    • Do not cover the area being treated with a dressing or bandage.
    • As with all products containing hydrocortisone, you should wash your hands immediately after applying the cream.

    The symptoms of a skin infection, such as itching or soreness should improve within a few days of treatment although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If the symptoms persist or do not start to improve after seven days, consult your doctor.

    You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

    • Although the infected area will itch, try not to scratch. Scratching will damage the surface of the skin and cause the infection to spread further.
    • Keep the affected skin areas clean.
    • Pay particular attention to drying the skin, but avoid excessive rubbing.
    • Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.
    • Always wash your hands after treating the infection to prevent it from spreading.

    If you have athlete’s foot:

    • Remember to dry the skin between the toes thoroughly.
    • Wash your socks, stockings and tights thoroughly in hot water to remove any shed skin or fungal spores.
    • Change your footwear daily if possible.

    What does Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream contain?

    The active substances are clotrimazole and hydrocortisone acetate. Each gram of cream contains 10mg clotrimazole and 11.2mg hydrocortisone acetate (equivalent to 10mg hydrocortisone).

    • Cleanse and dry the affected areas thoroughly and wash your hands. Treatment can be helped by keeping the affected areas clean by regular washing and careful drying with your own clean towels and clothes, and not rubbing or scratching the skin.
    • Remove the cap from the spray bottle - If using the medicine for the first time, press the pump a few times until you achieve an even spray.
    • Spray enough of the solution from a distance of 5 to 10 cm to thoroughly wet the affected skin. When used between the toes, buttocks or on the groin, the treated area may be covered with a light, fresh gauze strip, especially at night.
    • Replace the cap on the spray bottle and wash your hands.

    Even though you will not be using Lamisil AT 1% Spray during the second week, full skin healing after the infection has cleared will continue for up to 4 weeks.

    • Once weekly application should continue for six months for fingernails and 9 to 12 months for toenails.
    • Nails grow slowly so it may take 2 or 3 months before you start to see an improvement.
    • It is vital to carry on using the nail lacquer until the infection has cleared and healthy nails have grown back.
    • The following steps should be followed carefully for each affected nail:

    Step 1: File the nail

    Using a new file, gently file down the infected areas of nail, including the nail surface. Protect any healthy nails while you are doing this so that you don't spread the infection.

    CAUTION: Do not use the same nail file used for infected nails and healthy nails, as this could spread the infection as well.

    To prevent the spread of infection, take care that no one else uses the files from your kit.

    Step 2: Clean the nail

    Use one of the swabs provided (or nail varnish remover) to clean the nail surface. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each affected nail.

    Step 3: Apply the lacquer

    Dip one of the re-usable applicators into the bottle of nail lacquer. The lacquer must not be wiped off the edge of the bottle before it is applied. Apply the lacquer evenly over the entire surface of the nail. Repeat this step for each affected nail.

    Let the treated nail(s) dry for approximately 10 minutes.

    Step 4: Clean the applicator

    The applicators provided are re-usable. However, it is essential to clean them thoroughly after completing each treatment procedure, using the same swab you used for nail cleansing. Avoid touching newly treated nails with the swab. Close the nail lacquer bottle tightly. Dispose of the swab carefully as it is inflammable.

    What is Daktarin Gold 2% Cream?

    Daktarin Gold 2% Cream is a medicine which is used to treat skin infections which may appear on the feet (Athlete’s Foot), in the groin area (Dhobie itch/tinea cruris) or between skin folds  (Sweat Rash infected with a yeast infection ‘thrush’). 

    The cream rapidly relieves the itching which these fungal infections cause. It also provides long lasting protection from Athlete’s Foot, as it will continue to work even after you have stopped using it. The cream contains the active substance, ketoconazole, which works by destroying the fungi and yeasts that cause the infection. 

    If you have Athlete’s Foot, the skin between your toes will be red and itchy. Your skin may flake and crack and often the infection causes an unpleasant ‘cheesy’ smell. It is encouraged by moist, warm conditions and can be recognised by redness, irritation and itchiness between the toes.

    Tinea cruris or Dhobie Itch is a fungal infection that occurs in the groin area and causes intense itching and inflammation (redness and soreness). In men, the skin of the scrotum is often affected.

    Candidal intertrigo or sweat rash which has been infected with a yeast infection (‘thrush’) is usually found under the breasts and where fleshy areas around the waist or under the armpits become damp with sweat between the deep folds of skin. The skin area becomes red and sore, and it often looks like moisture is coming from the surface.

    How do you catch Athlete’s Foot?

    It’s extremely infectious so anyone can pick it up, especially people sharing communal changing rooms and showers. 

    Once the fungal spores have been transferred onto the feet, they thrive in the warm, moist areas between the toes. The skin soon becomes inflamed and itchy with flaking or cracking occurring.

    The infected flakes of skin are then shed onto the floor or into the socks and shoes by walking or friction.

    Someone else will be easily infected if they step on these flakes, or if they share towels or footwear with someone who has already got Athlete’s Foot.

    What is more, even if you’ve already got rid of your Athlete’s Foot, it’s very easy to re-infect yourself. The spores can live on or in your shoes or socks and if you don’t change them regularly, or treat them with antifungal powders or spray powders, the Athlete’s Foot soon returns.

    How to prevent re-infection

    If you want to avoid the vicious circle of re-infection, here are a few helpful hints.

    • Spray inside your shoes and socks with fungicidal powder before putting them on.
    • Don’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. This helps reduce the build-up of sweat which provides the moisture on which the fungus thrives.
    • Avoid synthetic footwear. Choose cotton socks and leather shoes which allow your feet to breathe.
    • Avoid sharing towels or footwear.
    • Avoid walking barefoot in changing rooms.
    • Dry thoroughly between your toes and keep toenails short as this reduces the number of places fungi can grow.

    How to use Daktarin Gold 2% Cream

    • Each tube of cream is sealed – unscrew the cap and use the cap to pierce the seal.
    • For topical use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area of skin.
    • Do not use more often than the stated dose shown in the table.

    How to apply Daktarin Gold 2% Cream

    • Wash the infected area and dry it well. As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.
    • Apply the cream onto the infected area and surrounding skin.
    • Wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people. Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.

    For skin infections of the trunk, groin, feet and hands, apply Daktarin Gold 2% Cream to the affected and immediate surrounding area once or twice a day. 

    Your doctor will tell you how often to use it and for how long. Depending on the type of infection, treatment may last 2 to 6 weeks. 

    For Athlete’s foot (infections between the toes)

    Adults: Rub the cream gently between the toes and surrounding area once or twice a day (morning and night) for 4 to 6 weeks. Treatment may be necessary for up to 6 weeks.

    • Continue to apply the cream to the affected areas for a few days after signs of infection have cleared to prevent them coming back.
    • If symptoms have not improved within 4 weeks talk to your doctor.

    For Dhobie itch and Sweat Rash (Candidal Intertrigo)

    Adults: Rub the cream into the affected and surrounding area once or twice daily.

    • Continue treatment for a few days after signs of infection have cleared. Treatment may be necessary for up to 4 weeks. You may feel relief from symptoms quickly but it is important that you continue to use the cream as described to prevent them from coming back.
    • If symptoms have not improved within 4 weeks talk to your doctor.

    What does Daktarin Gold 2% Cream contain

    The active ingredient in 1 g of Daktarin Gold 2% Cream is: Ketoconazole 20 mg.

    Other ingredients are: Propylene glycol, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, sorbitan stearate, polysorbate 60, polysorbate 80, isopropyl myristate, sodium sulphite (E221) and purified water.

    What is Clotrimazole Cream 1% Fungal Treatment?

    The active substance is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

    Clotrimazole is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash. It is also used to relieve irritation of the vulva (external thrush) or the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush.

    When Clotrimazole is applied to the infected area of skin, it works by destroying the fungus or yeast which has caused the infection. 

    How to use Clotrimazole Cream 1% Fungal Treatment

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Clotrimazole should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas, two or three times daily and rubbed in gently.
    • A strip of cream (½ cm long) is enough to treat an area of about the size of the hand.
    • The duration of the treatment depends upon the type of infection. Use the cream for at least two weeks for candida (thrush) infections or at least one month for other infections.
    • If you have athlete’s foot, it may help to use an antifungal dusting powder as well. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend one.

    The symptoms of skin infection such as itching or soreness should improve within a few days of treatment, although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

    What does Clotrimazole Cream 1% Fungal Treatment contain

    The active substance is clotrimazole. Each gram of cream contains 10 mg of clotrimazole (i.e. 1% w/w).

    What is Canesten Clotrimazole Cream?

    Canesten Cream treats fungal skin infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash. It is also used to relieve irritation of the vulva (external thrush) or the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush.

    The active substance in Canesten Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

    What are fungal infections?

    Fungal infections are prevalent and affect many people. Some common fungal skin infections include athlete’s foot, nappy rash, sweat rash and ringworm.

    There are two main types of fungal infection:

    • The tinea group is also known as dermatophytes.
    • The candida group, also known as yeasts.

    The tinea group includes athlete’s foot and ringworm, easily spread by contact. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot usually lives harmlessly on our skin and environment. Damp, moist conditions can upset the natural balance that generally controls it. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty. Since this fungus is contagious, it can often be picked up in changing rooms. Ringworm is usually passed on from animals to children. Ringworm is not a worm; its name comes from the circular worm-like shape that it forms on the skin. The main symptom for both is an itchy, scaly and irritating rash.

    The candida group can be responsible for conditions such as sweat rash and thrush. Sweat rash can appear anywhere on the body but is more likely to occur where folds of skin rub against each other, such as under the breasts, under arms, around the groin and on the back. Candida is a yeast-like fungus that usually lives harmlessly on our skin. However, the natural balance that generally controls it can be upset by factors such as sweating, tight or synthetic clothing and cosmetic preparations such as bath additives. When levels of the yeast increase, the skin can develop the following symptoms: persistent burning and itching, soreness and a variety of patches or blemishes, and a softened and soggy appearance.

    The candida group can also be responsible for nappy rash. Most babies develop nappy rash at some stage. Although this is rarely serious, the rash can be highly distressing for you and your baby. Nappy rash, lasting longer than three days, may be fungal in origin and require an antifungal treatment. The symptoms of fungal nappy rash include red patches on the baby’s bottom and genitals, burning and itching.

    How to use Canesten Clotrimazole Cream

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Canesten Cream should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas twice or thrice daily and rubbed gently.
    • A strip of cream (1/2 cm long) is enough to treat an area about the size of the hand.
    • The duration of the treatment depends upon the type of infection. Generally, a minimum of two weeks is required, although up to four weeks may be necessary.

    The symptoms of a skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment, although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

    You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

    • Although the infected area will itch, try not to scratch. Scratching will damage the skin's surface and cause the infection to spread further.
    • Keep the affected skin areas clean.
    • Pay particular attention to drying the skin, but avoid excessive rubbing.
    • Do not share towels, bath mats, etc., with others, as you could spread the infection to them.
    • Always wash your hands after treating the infection to prevent it from spreading.

    If you have athlete’s foot:

    • Remember to dry the skin between the toes thoroughly.
    • Wash your socks, stockings and tights thoroughly in hot water to remove shed skin or fungal spores.
    • Change your footwear daily if possible.

    What is Canesten Athletes Foot Cream?

    Canesten Dual Action 1% w/w Cream is used to treat athlete’s foot or jock itch.

    The active substance in Canesten Dual Action Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

    What are fungal infections?

    Fungal infections are very common and affect many people. Some of the most common fungal skin infections include athlete’s foot (Tinea pedis) and jock itch (Tinea cruris). They are caused by a contagious fungus which thrives in warm, moist environments. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot usually lives harmlessly on our skin and in our environment. The natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as damp moist conditions. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty. Since this fungus is contagious, it can also often be picked up in changing rooms.

    Tell-tale signs of both athlete’s foot and jock itch are that the skin becomes itchy, red and inflamed. Sporty people or those who work in a warm, damp environment, tend to be more likely to catch these conditions.

    How to use Canesten Athletes Foot Cream

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Canesten Dual Action Cream should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas two or three times daily and rubbed in gently.
    • A strip of cream (1 /2 cm long) is enough to treat an area of about the size of the hand.
    • The treatment should be continued for at least one month to prevent re-infection.

    The symptoms of skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If symptoms do not improve within 7 days, consult your doctor.

    You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

    What are Canesflor Thrush Probiotic Capsules?

    • Helps prevent the recurrence of vaginal infections.
    • Restores the natural environment in the vagina
    • Re-establishes the vaginal microflora creating a protective barrier

    A physiological vaginal environment is maintained by the natural balance of microorganisms known as vaginal Aora. Lactobacilli make up the majority of vaginal flora, therefore providing a natural defence against vaginal infections such as thrush.

    One of the ways lactobacilli do this is by creating a protective barrier over the vaginal walls, helping prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms that can cause vaginal infections.

    Using Canesflor can help prevent the recurrence of vaginal infections such as thrush by restoring and maintaining the optimal level of lactobacilli in the vagina and restoring the physiological pH, hence keeping physiological balance.

    Canesflor can also be used as soon as you finish (i.e. next day) the appropriate medication for your vaginal infection to help prevent a recurrence.

    How to use Canesflor Thrush Probiotic Capsules

    • Read the enclosed leaflet carefully.
    • Use one capsule each day for six consecutive days and then one capsule per week for four weeks.
    • Insert one capsule deeply into the vagina while lying on your back before going to sleep.

    What do Canesflor Thrush Probiotic Capsules contain?

    Active ingredient: Lactobacillus Plantarum P 17630 VI not less than 10^8 CFU,

    Maize starch, mannitol, carboxymethylcellulose sodium cross-linked, vegetable magnesium stearate, silica dioxide, gelatin, titanium dioxide.

    What is Canesten Athletes Foot Cream?

    Canesten Dual Action 1% w/w Cream is used to treat athlete’s foot or jock itch.

    The active substance in Canesten Dual Action Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

    What are fungal infections?

    Fungal infections are very common and affect many people. Some of the most common fungal skin infections include athlete’s foot (Tinea pedis) and jock itch (Tinea cruris). They are caused by a contagious fungus which thrives in warm, moist environments. The fungus that causes athlete’s foot usually lives harmlessly on our skin and in our environment. The natural balance that normally keeps it under control can be upset by factors such as damp moist conditions. This could happen, for example, through regularly wearing training shoes that keep the feet hot and sweaty. Since this fungus is contagious, it can also often be picked up in changing rooms.

    Tell-tale signs of both athlete’s foot and jock itch are that the skin becomes itchy, red and inflamed. Sporty people or those who work in a warm, damp environment, tend to be more likely to catch these conditions.

    How to use Canesten Athletes Foot Cream

    • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
    • If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.
    • Canesten Dual Action Cream should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas two or three times daily and rubbed in gently.
    • A strip of cream (1 /2 cm long) is enough to treat an area of about the size of the hand.
    • The treatment should be continued for at least one month to prevent re-infection.

    The symptoms of skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. If symptoms do not improve within 7 days, consult your doctor.

    You can help the treatment to work if you follow these simple self-help tips:

    • Although the infected area will itch, try not to scratch. Scratching will damage the surface of the skin and cause the infection to spread further.
    • Keep the affected skin areas clean.
    • Pay particular attention to drying the skin, but avoid excessive rubbing.
    • Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.
    • Always wash your hands after treating the infection to prevent it from spreading.

    If you have athlete’s foot:

    • Remember to dry the skin between the toes thoroughly.
    • Wash your socks, stockings and tights thoroughly in hot water to remove any shed skin or fungal spores.
    • Change your footwear daily if possible
