Description

What is Canesten 1% Cream?

Canesten cream can be 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 and labia (external thrush) or the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush.

How does Canesten Cream treat fungal skin infections like nappy rashes?

Canesten Cream is made with a powerful antifungal ingredient that directly fights the fungi and bacteria that’s caused the infection outbreak.

If you are unsure whether you (or your baby if treating nappy rash) have one of these fungal skin infections, seek the advice of your doctor or pharmacist.

Uses / Instructions

How to use Canesten cream: Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. If you purchased this product without a prescription, follow these directions closely.
  • 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 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 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. If you have athlete's foot, it may help to use an antifungal dusting powder as well. 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. Canesten cream is for external use only. If you forget to use Canesten apply the cream as soon as possible, then continue the rest of your treatment as usual. Do not suddenly stop using Canesten as this may cause the symptoms of the infection to return.
