I used Kanditral to treat the fungus on the nails of the hands (after the prescription of the doctor, of course). Saw capsules for several months. The effect is satisfied. The only minus of the drug in its price - for a pack of 14 capsules, I had to pay about 1,000 rubles, and for a month you need at least 2 packs. The tool is transferred perfectly, no side effects, which I was so afraid, did not appear. In general, I advise those who have a similar problem, but only after consulting a doctor, because the medicine has many contraindications. Lidia Alexandrovna, 46 years old

I was prescribed the drug "Kanditral" for recurrent candidiasis (thrush) with topical medications. There is a means, of course, a little expensive, but its effectiveness is such that this money is not at all a pity. After five years of torment, I finally got rid of my chronic sore and can live peacefully without fear of another relapse. Marina, 22 years old
