Clotrimazole is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, and fungal sweat rash. It is also used to relieve irritation of the vulva (external thrush) or the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush. Please note that it cannot be used for a nappy rash. This pack includes 3 x 20g tubes.
Fluconazole Capsules are a form of treatment that helps to provide relief for fungal conditions such as thrush. It belongs to a class of drugs called azole antifungals and works by stopping the growth of certain types of fungus. This means that Fluconazole eases thrush by targeting the source of infection, working quickly and effectively to provide relief.
When Clotrimazole is applied to the infected area of skin it works by destroying the fungus or yeast which has caused the infection. Fluconazole destroys the infection by going straight to the source of the fungus.
You can buy certain pack sizes and doses over the counter in the UK. You don’t need a prescription to buy this dose, but a pharmacist will need to ensure the treatment is suitable and safe for you.
Thrush is usually caused by the yeast fungus candida. This yeast lives harmlessly on the skin and in the vagina. Typical symptoms include itching and soreness, discharge, pain during sex and stinging.
Clotrimazole is not known to interact with any other medicines. As with other creams, Clotrimazole may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, such as condoms or diaphragms. Consequently, if you are using this cream on the vulva or penis, you should use alternative precautions for at least five days after using this product.
Like all medicines, Fluconazole can have side effects, although not everybody will get them. Stop using this product and seek medical advice immediately if you experience any symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, which include:

Some over the counter medicines are only allowed to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. Clotrimazole Cream is one of these medicines.
Just like when you buy this medicine in a high street or local pharmacy, the pharmacist will need to ask you a few questions. This is a legal requirement for selling this type of medicine.
You may not always realise when your local pharmacist asks you the required questions, as this can sometimes be done subtly. When sold online, we need to make sure our pharmacists have all the information they need to ensure this treatment is right for you.
Simply fill in the short questionnaire and add the product to cart. Then proceed to checkout.
