Uses of Candid 1% (Generic Clotrimazole Topical Cream)

The most common fungal skin infections include athlete's foot, nappy rash, sweat rash and ringworm. The two main types of fungal infection include The tinea group (also known as dermatophytes) and the candida group ( also known as yeasts).

How Does Clotrimazole Topical Cream Work?
Clotrimazole Topical Cream acts against fungi by inhibiting ergosterol synthesis. Inhibition of ergosterol synthesis leads to structural and functional impairment of the cytoplasmic membrane.
Clotrimazole Topical Cream Dosage and Administration
The affected area should be washed and thoroughly dried. Thin layer of Clotrimazole topical cream must be evenly rubbed into the affected area twice daily or as directed by your doctor .
Dosage and length of treatment depends on the type of infection being treated. Do not apply this more often than prescribed. Your condition will not clear faster, but side effects could be increased.
Apply enough cream to cover the affected area and some of the surrounding skin. After applying Candid 1% cream , wash your hands. Do not wrap, cover or bandage the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.
Continue to use this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after starting Clotrimazole. Stopping the medication too early may allow the fungus to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection.
Inform your doctor if your condition persists after 4 weeks of treatment or worsens at any time.
Duration Of Treatment With Clotrimazole Antifungal Cream
The duration of treatment varies and depends on the extent and localization of the disease. Generally, clinical improvement with relief of pruritus usually occurs within the first week of treatment. Tinea infections require approximately 3 to 4 weeks of therapy while in candidiasis, 1 to 2 weeks treatment is often adequate.
If no clinical improvement is seen after 4 weeks, the diagnosis must be reviewed. If a cure is not mycologically confirmed or in order that relapses may be prevented (particularly in cases of nmycoses of the foot), treatment must, as a rule, be continued for 2 weeks after all clinical symptoms have disappeared.
