Canesten Bifonazole Once Daily 1% w/w Cream is used to treat athlete’s foot. If you are unsure whether you have athlete’s foot, seek the advice of your doctor or pharmacist. The active substance is bifonazole. Bifonazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

If Canesten Bifonazole Cream has been prescribed for you by your doctor, follow any instructions he/she may have given you. If you purchased this product without a prescription, follow these directions closely:

  • The symptoms of athlete’s foot, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment although signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear
  • If symptoms do not improve within 7 days, consult your doctor or pharmacist
