I was prescribed clotrimazole to treat a fungus on my thigh, which I could pick up in the pool. Immediately after applying the cream itching stopped. Four days later, the affected area dried out and redness decreased. Despite the fact that the doctor warned about the likely long-term treatment, improvements have come in a short time. Recomend for everybody. Elena, Russia, Yekaterinburg

At the very first symptoms of the fungus but on my legs, as a girl caring for myself, the first thing I did was to go to the doctor, who appointed me this excellent and inexpensive means. I really liked clotrimazole, it has a very reasonable price, and it is undoubtedly effective, the improvement was noticeable immediately after the first use. I did not feel any discomfort. It is necessary to apply means only outwardly therefore it is not necessary to be afraid of side effects, their emergence is improbable. Bloodycookie, student, Moscow, Russia

  • Vladimir :

    A couple of weeks ago, 3 miller pimples appeared on the head of the penis, now there are already many more. There is nothing on the foreskin. Discomfort does not bring me, do not itch. Sex every day with one partner in a condom. I thought that the allergy to the condom could have gone, but it looks like a thrush, because these pimples are such as in the photo by searching Google for "thrush". Should I anoint the penis head with this ointment?
