What is Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream (HC cream)?

Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream or HC cream is a treatment for athlete’s foot and fungal sweat rashes. It targets the fungi and bacteria that cause the infection while working to soothe inflammation and relieve swelling and itching.

 

What are athlete’s foot and fungal sweat rashes?

Athlete’s foot and fungal sweat rashes are common forms of skin infections. They happen in warm, damp areas of your skin, such as between your toes or between folds of skin. When fungi grow in these places, you can suffer from an infection that causes red, sore, inflamed patches of skin which can become itchy.

 

How will Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream treat my athlete’s foot or fungal sweat rash?

Canesten HC cream contains the active ingredient clotrimazole, which helps to fight the bacteria and fungi which cause athlete’s foot or fungal sweat rashes. It also uses hydrocortisone, which is a mild steroid that helps to relieve swelling and itching in the inflamed area.

 

How to use Canesten HC Cream

Apply Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream in a thin and even layer to the affected areas twice a day. Rub in gently. You will only need around 1cm of cream per application. If you are using Canesten HC cream on your foot, make sure to wash and dry the foot thoroughly before applying, especially between the toes.

 

Why do I need to answer questions to purchase this product?
