Clotrimazole 1% Cream (20g) is an external treatment cream for fungal skin infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch, fungal nappy rash and ringworm. The antifungal cream fights fungus with the active ingredient Clotrimazole.

Clotrimazole 1% Cream (20g)

Clotrimazole Cream is a topical treatment for clearing fungal infections. It contains the active ingredient, Clotrimazole, and works by preventing the growth of fungus.

An effective, fast-acting topical ointment, Clotrimazole 1% Cream can be purchased for over-the-counter and without a prescription. 

How Does Clotrimazole Work?

Clotrimazole is a popular, effective antifungal ingredient. When applied to the infected area, it prevents the fungi from producing a substance called Ergosterol. This is an essential part of the fungal cell membrane and this disruption will cause holes to appear. These holes cause the fungal cells to leak out, killing the fungi. 

Effective fungal treatment

  • Athlete’s foot
  • Jock Itch
  • Candida
  • Fungal Nappy Rash
  • Fungal Sweat Rash
  • Genital Thrush

How to apply Clotrimazole 1% Cream:

  • It should be applied to the affected area(s) of skin thinly two to three times daily and rubbed in gently.
  • Treatment should be continued for at least one month for dermatophyte infections and at least two weeks for candidal infections.
  • Ask your pharmacist for further advice on treating your particular infection.

Caution before using Clotrimazole 1% Cream:

Care clotrimazole cream is for external use only. There is a possibility that clotrimazole cream may damage latex (rubber) condoms and diaphragms (caps) and so make them ineffective at preventing pregnancy and STIs. If you are using this cream to treat the vagina or penis you should use an alternative method of contraception for at least five days after using the cream, or preferably avoid having sex until after the infection has cleared up. Remember that having sex while you still have the infection is likely to transmit the infection to your partner, who could then transfer it back to you.

If your sexual partner also has symptoms of thrush it is important that they are treated at the same time as you to prevent you being re-infected. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for further advice. If symptoms persist despite treatment, seek medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

The safety of this medicine when used during pregnancy has not been specifically studied. However, it has been used by a large number of women during pregnancy without any apparent harmful effects.

This medicine is not significantly absorbed into the bloodstream from the skin and it is highly unlikely that any of the medicine will pass into breast milk. However, as with all medicines, you should seek medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine if you are breastfeeding.
