Canesten® Antifungal Cream

Canesten® Antifungal Cream fights athlete's foot and a broad range of fungal skin infections like ringworm, jock itch or children's fungal nappy rash.

Canesten Antifungal Cream is a complete solution that stops the growth of the fungi, kills the fungi and relieves the symptoms.

Easy to use at home, the formula is mild but effective and thus suitable for the whole family.

What is athlete’s foot?

It’s a fungal skin infection caused by fungi that thrive in warm and moist environments like changing rooms, showers and public pools. Walking barefoot in these places puts you at greater risk. Athlete’s foot usually occurs between your toes, but it can also affect the soles and sides of your feet. 

Good to know! 

You don’t have to be an athlete to get infected and it’s not a matter of poor hygiene. Fungal skin infections may feel uncomfortable, but in most cases there’s nothing to worry about and they can be treated easily.

Common symptoms of skin fungus

  • Red rash or blisters​ 
  • Itching, burning or stinging​ 
  • Flaked, cracked or scaly skin​ 
  • Splitting, softening or whitening skin 
  • Unpleasant odour

How to use?

Apply the cream thinly to the affected area and smooth in gently. Repeat 2-3 times a day for up to 3 or 4 weeks to kill the root of the infection. The length of treatment may vary depending on the kind of infection you have.

Don’t forget!
Even if your symptoms seem to be clearing up, you should complete the full course of treatment to ensure the infection is treated.

When you have
athlete's foot

Athlete’s foot is a common condition. It’s not serious and not the end of the world, but the symptoms are annoying and can be even more so if the infection lingers or comes back. That’s why you shouldn’t ignore it:

A fungal infection won’t go on its own. Treat it, don’t hide it.

An infection doesn’t disappear just because symptoms do. Antifungal treatment needs 3-4 weeks to be completely effective.

Canesten cream icon

Start treatment sooner rather than later to fight fungus more effectively.

If untreated, athlete’s foot can spread to other parts of your body and cause other types of skin fungus or fungal nail.

Care about your
loved ones

Athlete’s foot is very contagious. It not only easily spreads to other parts of your body, but also to other people. Your loved ones are especially susceptible, but there are a few things you can do:

Wash your hands after applying the treatment or choose a treatment with no-touch applicator.
