About Clotrimazole

Clotrimazole is an antifungal agent used in the treatment of fungal skin infections, commonly:

Most of these skin infections are caused by fungal or yeast organisms. They are characterised by sore, red, itchy and often scaly skin.
These infections are common and can be highly contagious. It is important that good hygiene measures are practised, such as hand washing and using separate towels, to prevent the spread of infection.  

If you are unsure whether you are suffering from any of the above infections, you should consult your pharmacist or doctor before using clotrimazole cream. They will be able to advise you on the best treatment option available.

Clotrimazole belongs to the antifungal drug class of the ‘imidazole's’. It acts by breaking down fungal cell walls leading to cell death, as well as preventing the fungal cells from growing and reproducing.

Using Clotrimazole

Clotrimazole should be applied sparingly to the affected area two to three times a day.
A small strip, about half a cm long, is enough to cover an area the size of a hand. It should, therefore, be applied thinly. You should wash your hands before and after applying the cream.

If the feet are infected, as with athletes foot, they should be washed and dried thoroughly before application of the cream.

The application should continue for at least one week after symptoms have resolved. This is to ensure the fungal infection has been completely treated.
Abruptly stopping treatment can cause the fungal infection to return therefore it is important to continue treatment even after symptoms have cleared.

If you forget to apply clotrimazole, apply it as soon as possible and continue treatment as normal.

If symptoms persist after one month of use, contact your doctor. They may it is appropriate to prescribe a stronger topical antifungal or an oral form of treatment for resistant infections.

Clotrimazole should be applied to the skin only, it should not be applied to the mouth or ingested.

Effectiveness

Clotrimazole is widely used and is an effective antifungal. Everyone responds differently to medication, and some fungal infections may be more prone to resistance than others. If you find that clotrimazole is ineffective you may want to try an alternative antifungal.

Alternatives

Other topical antifungals are available from Simple Online Pharmacy.

These contain similar antifungal agents to clotrimazole and should be applied in the same way.

Powders and sprays are also available for the treatment of athlete's foot - Daktarin Powder and Daktarin Aktiv Spray. These both contain the active ingredient miconazole but may allow for easier application.

Oral treatment is available for the treatment of vaginal thrush - fluconazole capsule. This is taken as a single dose. If taking any other medication, you should check with your pharmacist that this treatment is appropriate for you. A vaginal pessary is also available. These can both be used in conjunction with clotrimazole cream.
