Frequently asked questions about Clotrimazole

Q. What is Candex 1% Cream used for?
Candex 1% Cream is an antifungal medicine. It is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm (fungal skin infection that causes a red scaly rash on different parts of the body), athlete’s foot (fungal infection of the skin on the feet and between the toes), fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash. It is also used to relieve irritation of the vulva (external thrush) and irritation occurring at the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush.
Q. Candex 1% Cream is effective against which fungi?
Candex 1% Cream is effective against Trichophyton species which cause ringworm infection, athlete’s foot and jock itch (fungal infection of the skin in the groin or buttocks). It is also effective against yeast known as Candida which commonly causes vaginal thrush (infection caused by overgrowth of yeast called Candida albicans).
Q. I have started using Candex 1% Cream. By when can I expect to start seeing the improvements?
The symptoms of skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment. However, the signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. Do not stop applying this medicine before the duration advised by your doctor, even if you feel better.
Q. What precautions are necessary while applying Candex 1% Cream?
Always wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying Candex 1% Cream. If you are using the cream for an infected foot, wash and dry your feet thoroughly before applying the cream, especially between the toes, before applying the cream. Candex 1% Cream should be applied thinly and evenly and rubbed in the affected areas two or three times daily.
Q. For how long should I apply Candex 1% Cream? Can I stop if the symptoms have completely disappeared?
The duration of treatment depends on the type of infection. In general, the treatment is continued for 1 month for tinea infection and for at least for 15 days for candida infection. Do not stop the treatment on your own even if you feel better because the infection may come back as it takes some time to kill the fungus.
Q. Is Candex 1% Cream safe to use in children?
Candex 1% Cream is safe for children only if taken as directed by the doctor. It should be given to children in the correct dose only for the prescribed length of time. Minor side effects may occur but usually, they are not bothersome. However, if you develop a burning sensation, redness and itching (which is severe in nature), stop the medicine and contact your doctor.
Q. Are there any measures that should be taken to help a faster recovery?
Keep the affected skin areas clean and dry but avoid excessive rubbing. You may have the urge to scratch because of itchiness but avoid scratching as it will damage the surface of skin and cause the infection to spread further. Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.
Q. Does Candex 1% Cream affect contraception?
Candex 1% Cream may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, like diaphragms and condoms. If you are using the cream on vulva or penis, you should use alternative methods of contraception, for at least 5 days after using Candex 1% Cream.
