Product details

Clotrimazole 1% is a topical (for the skin) cream that is intended to be used on fungal infections on the skin. This cream should be used to treat conditions such as thrush, athlete's foot, ringworm, or any other fungal infection that is external on the body. Clotrimazole 1% cream is suitable for anyone who is suffering from a fungal or yeast infection and wants an effective form of treatment.

    You can help the treatment to work by following 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 clean.
  • Pay particular attention to drying the skin, but avoid excessive rubbing.
  • Do not share towels, bathmats, etc with other people as you could spread the infection to them.

    How do you use clotrimazole 1% cream?

    It's important that to get the best results you use your clotrimazole 1% cream correctly. The cream should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected area 2 - 3 times daily and rubbed in gently to the affected area.

    A strip of cream ( cm long) is enough to treat an area of about the size of the hand. Use the cream for candida (thrush) infections for one month for other infections. If the feet are infected, they should be thoroughly washed and dried, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.

    How does clotrimazole work?

    Clotrimazole works by killing the fungus (yeast) that is causing the infection. Once the fungus has be destroyed from the affected area the skin should start to feel healthy and improved. 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.

Usage / Instructions Expand

How to use Clotrimazole 1% 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.
  • Clotrimazole should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas, two or three times daily and rubbed in gently.
  • A strip of cream ( 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.

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. Clotrimazole 1% cream is for external use only.

If you forget to use Clotrimazole, apply the cream as soon as possible, then continue the rest of your treatment as usual. Do not suddenly stop using Clotrimazole as this may cause the symptoms of the infection to return.
