Canesten (Clotrimazole) belongs to the class of medications called antifungals. It is used to treat various skin infections caused by fungus or yeast. Canesten (Clotrimazole) works by killing the overgrowth of yeast or fungus that causes the infection.

Canesten (Clotrimazole) can be used to treat tinea pedis (Athlete's Foot), Tinea Cruris (Jock Itch) (jock itch), tinea corporis (ringworm), Candidiasis (various yeast infections of the skin and mucous membranes), infected diaper rash, and tinea versicolor (patches of skin that are a different colour than the rest of the skin).

Canesten (Clotrimazole) usually starts to work within a few days of starting treatment. Treatment may be needed for up to 4 weeks, depending on the infection being treated.

Canesten (Clotrimazole) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Canesten (Clotrimazole) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Canesten (Clotrimazole) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Canesten (Clotrimazole) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Canesten (Clotrimazole), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Canesten (Clotrimazole) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Canesten (Clotrimazole) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Canesten (Clotrimazole) if their doctor has not prescribed it.



To treat diaper rash for children, apply a thin layer and gently massage enough cream onto the affected and surrounding skin area twice daily at a diaper change, in the morning and evening. Only use Canesten (Clotrimazole) for treating diaper rash that has been diagnosed by your doctor. If symptoms worsen or if there is no improvement after 2 weeks, contact your doctor. Do not use Canesten (Clotrimazole) cream for longer than 14 days.

To treat jock itch, athlete's foot, and ringworm for adults, apply a thin layer of cream and gently massage it into the affected and surrounding skin area twice daily, in the morning and evening. Improvement in the itching should be seen within the first week. For jock itch and ringworm, treatment should be continued for 2 to 4 weeks. For athlete's foot, treatment may be needed for at least 4 weeks.

For foot infections, make sure you dry your feet thoroughly (especially between the toes) and wear well-fitted, ventilated shoes and cotton or wool socks to improve treatment results and prevent repeat infections. Treatment with Canesten (Clotrimazole) topical cream should continue for about 2 weeks after your symptoms have disappeared. This will help to prevent relapses.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Avoid contact with the eyes. If this happens, rinse thoroughly with water.

If your symptoms have not disappeared or improved after 2 weeks of treatment (up to 4 weeks for athlete's foot), or if your symptoms worsen, contact your doctor.

It is important to apply Canesten (Clotrimazole) exactly as prescribed by your doctor or recommended by your pharmacist. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Canesten (Clotrimazole) at room temperature between 15°C and 30°C, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. In many cases, interactions are intended or are managed by close monitoring. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Canesten (Clotrimazole). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.



Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Canesten (Clotrimazole).

Dressings: Do not use dressings or bandages over Canesten (Clotrimazole) cream unless recommended by your doctor. Diapers are not considered dressings because they allow air to contact the skin and are frequently changed.

For external use only: Canesten (Clotrimazole) cream is for external use only and should not be taken by mouth.

Hygiene: Fungal infections of the foot are often difficult to treat. Drying the skin after washing, particularly keeping the areas between the toes dry, and wearing cotton or wool socks to absorb moisture will help the skin to heal and keep the infection from returning.

Nail infection: Canesten (Clotrimazole) is not to be used for infection of the nails. Contact your doctor if you have a fungal nail infection.

Pregnancy: Canesten (Clotrimazole) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while using Canesten (Clotrimazole), contact your doctor.

Breast-feeding: Canesten (Clotrimazole) may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using Canesten (Clotrimazole), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
