What Is Canesten Dermatological Spray 40ml
Canesten Dermatological Spray is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, jock itch and fungal sweat rash. If you are unsure whether you have one of these fungal skin infections, seek the advice of your doctor or pharmacist. The atomiser spray is particularly suitable for infections covering large or hairy areas. The active substance in Canesten Dermatological Spray is clotrimazole.
