FungiCURE Pump Spray (clotrimazole) for Cutaneous Candidiasis: “I used the body wash in the FungiCure and highly recommend it”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “It's a very strange medication. Sometimes it's very effective, sometimes the side effects make it feel worse, and sometimes you can't even tell if it's working. It only "cures" what's being caused by a more complex imbalance from antibiotic use. It also depends on how your body works and reacts to different things. I prefer it over that dreadful Monistat because it doesn't burn as much... My best advice to any lady is listen to your body first. This is still a Drug. If you have frequent infections there it could be telling you something you might not understand yet.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I'm very sensitive, so my dr prescribed compounded clotrimazole: clotrimazole in petrolatum; no other ingredients. 5-alarm vaginal fire! My labia are swollen and purple. In so much pain, I'm having trouble sleeping. So disappointed.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I’ve been having yeast infections ever since high school & ever since I got pregnant it’s gotten worse, off and on. It’s super frustrating!!! And not to mention my husband hates it LOL Ive tried Monistat and never went away. This Clotrimazole cream definitely works. I recommend it to EVERYONE. After the first night I had relief and all my gross discharge came out all in one. And I don’t have to wear a pad throughout the day anymore. My life has changed forever! Super good 10/10 recommend.”

Gyne-Lotrimin (clotrimazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I also preferred gyne-lotrimin when treating a yeast infection. It provides relief without the awful burn of Monistat cream. I asked my gynecologist why when I tried the one day treatment I felt like it was burning me. She told me it is because if you use the 1 day cream versus the 3 or 7 day treatment cream, it kills off the yeast faster and when the yeast is killed it releases a toxin that burns like that. So that’s why the shorter the treatment the more you can expect to get that awful burning sensation. Sadly, for some reason, GyneLotrimin and it’s generic seems to have disappeared from stores where I live. Once in the past the pharmacist ordered it for me, or I found you can buy the generic version of it on Amazon.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I had reoccurring yeast infections due to pregnancy. I tried Monistat and it burned me so bad, went to the dr and they prescribed me terconazole twice which didn’t help either. So finally I bought this and my symptoms were relieved in one night. I couldn’t be happier!”

For Cutaneous Candidiasis: “My 7 year old daughter was diagnosed with Ring Worm. Her pediatrician prescribed her this medicine. It stopped the itch within minutes, and it started to fade in a short few days. My husband got Athletes Foot, so he used the cream and it was gone in 2 days. We make sure we always have a tube on hand. Highly recommended!”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “the clotrimazole vaginal has been my holy grail for yeast infections! Currently pregnant so I couldn’t take the usual diflucan pill. Tried Monistat 7 with horrible itchy and burning. Tried Walgreens clotrimazole 7 and felt relief in the first day! Definitely recommend!”

Gyne-Lotrimin (clotrimazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I always preferred to use this Gyne-Lotrimin instead of monistat 7. Monistat 7 causes horrible itching but I never got the same those problems from Gyne Lotrimin. It's unfortunate that it's seems harder to find where I live.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I have been dealing with severe yeast infections for months, on and off. I never wanted to use another cream after having a terrible reaction to monistat that burned like crazy. However, I went to Walgreens and bought a 7 day trial of clotrimazole and after ONE use I feel amazing! Clotrimazole is the answer to my yeast infections. I will never buy another product. I was so skeptical to ever insert another cream onto me but this worked instantly.”

For Tinea Cruris: “Over a large number of years I have endured the cyclic breakouts of skin itch. I have been treated and prescribed by Doctors to no avail and have given up only to endure again many times. This stuff works. I think it is a topical vaginal cream, which I am without, so I use it on my feet and groin. It releaves the itch on contact, which by itself is a godsend, but when combined with a cortisoid type cream starts to reduce the affected skin areas within days. I am very hopeful it will eradicate this scourge once and for all. I have been treating with this for about 10 days now and will run out of this prescription on the 17th. Back to the doctor for an update and...Whats next. My outlook is very positive at this point. Can't say thank you enough”

Clotrimazole-3 (clotrimazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I have Emetophobia (fear of vomiting) so I was too afraid to take the Fluconazole my GP prescribed me.. after trying all sorts of stuff, including the misery that is Miconazole, this finally cleared it up, overnight! However, I did have horrible Diarrhea the next morning AND cramps/flank pain... definitely worth it, though.”

TTAMSF December 24, 2017

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “For 20 years I kept getting yeast infections, got miconazole, lived thru 7 nights of hell since the miconazole movement in the vagina woke me up constantly, wait a month, and repeat. The miconazole would clump up during the night and drop in a lump In the morning. I got clotrimazole by mistake in a small pharmacy. I was pretty pissed that it cost me twice the miconazole and had only 1 applicator for the 7 nights. After 1st use I noticed my sleep wasn’t effected and no clumping whatsoever AND the itching was gone with 1 use!! By the 3rd night the infection was totally gone. Cltrimazole stays put and creamy and works 24/7. It is the best cream ever. I am never going back and I google every medication now!”

For Tinea Versicolor: “Extremely effective treatment for tinea versicolor. Spots have not returned in over 1 year even in humid summer weather. This medication works very well in combination with selenium sulfide which you can find in head and shoulders extra strength shampoo or selsun blue shampoo. Wet affected area, Apply shampoo, let dry, then rinse off. Set 10 minutes a day for this. The results will show”
