Instructions for use
Clotrimazole cream (ointment) is an antifungal topical agent for external use.

With a small concentration, the cream has a fungistatic effect inhibiting the growth of fungi, and in large, it has a fungicidal effect causing irreparable harm to the cells of fungi damaging the membranes, which is the cause of their complete death.
Also, the ointment leads to disruption of processes important for life of organisms, destroying the components of the cellular structure: proteins, polysaccharides, fats, amino acids. The cream interacts with enzymes of fungal cells, increasing the concentration of hydrogen peroxide to a toxic level, which also leads to their death.
Types of fungi resistant to the drug are almost not found, there are data only for some strains of Candida fungi. Information on the development of resistance to fungi sensitive to clotrimazole has not been reported.

I breastfeed, red spots with a white center appeared on my chest, I passed the tests, said yeast fungus, smeared clotrimazole and as if the stains were bigger. Now Madame pimafucin, is it worth smearing clotrimazole? Is it compatible with pimafucin. Thank you so much!
No, not worth it, one is enough.
On the head of the penis a couple of weeks ago there were 3 mill pimples, now there are more of them already. On the foreskin, there is nothing. Discomfort does not bring me, do not itch. Sex daily with one partner in a condom. I thought that I might have an allergy to a condom, but it looks like a thrush, as these pimples are the same as in the photo on the search in google "thrush". Should I use this ointment with the penis head?
According to the description does not look like a thrush, consult a doctor.
