What is Clotrimazole 1% cream/powder

Clotrimazole 1% cream Candid® manufactured by reputable Glenmark considered by users as the best cream for fungal infections. Candid cream is an international brand name for the combination of the antifungal agent, clotrimazole with sometimes betamethasone – Candid-B cream. Candid 1 percent clotrimazole cream is a broad spectrum antifungal medicine used to treat skin infections such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm. It also relieves symptoms such as burning, itching, cracking of the skin and discomfort caused by these infections.

Betamethasone which is an ingredient of Candid-B cream is a corticosteroid is a topical treatment used for various skin fungal infections, including tinea pedis, cruris, and corpora in users over 17 years of age. Corticosteroids mimic the effects of hormones your body produces naturally in your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. When prescribed in doses that exceed your body’s usual levels, corticosteroids suppress inflammation. Candid B Clotrimazole + Betamethasone cream is an anti-fungal cream manufactured by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. It is commonly used to treat yeast infections of the skin such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, and body ringworm. Do not use betamethasone topical without a doctor’s advice. The active ingredients are clotrimazole and betamethasone:

  • Clotrimazole is an azole group anti-fungal medication that is widely used in external fungal infections.
  • Beclomethasone dipropionate (betamethasone) is a steroid component used to alleviate the symptoms of fungal infection and relieve the inflammation and itchiness associated with fungal infections.

How to use 1% or 2% Clotrimazole cream and powder

Candid cream should only be used following a dermatologist’s prescription. Accurate diagnosis of a fungal infection is essential to ensure recovery. Without a doctor’s examination, it’s possible to mistake a bacterial infection for a fungal infection. The cream can be used in mild fungal infections such as ringworm, jock itch, and athlete’s foot that have significant itchiness and inflammation. It is a skin preparation and should not be applied to the mouth, lips, or tongue. The cream can also be applied inside the vagina to treat vaginal fungal infections (only possible with Candid-V specifically designed gel). However, it should be used alongside vaginal anti-fungal tablets like Candid-V1, -V3, or -V6, or an oral anti-fungal preparation such as Fluconazole.

Candid cream is usually used for two to eight weeks for fungal skin infections. Follow the directions on the package or your prescription label carefully, and ask your dermatologist to explain any part you do not understand. Use exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it, or use it more often than prescribed by your dermatologist. To use the cream, thoroughly clean the infected area, allow it to dry, and then gently rub the medication in until most of it disappears. Use just enough medication to cover the affected area. Use the cream for four weeks for athlete’s foot and two weeks for jock itch or body ringworm. If your symptoms do not improve by that time, stop using the medication and consult either a dermatologist.
