How much and how often should you use the product?
Wash your hands before and after applying clotrimazole cream unless using it to treat a hand infection.
Clean and dry the affected area. Apply a small amount of the cream (typically twice daily) for two to four weeks.
Do not cover the treated area unless your doctor specifies it. Avoid using bandages or dressings as this prevents air circulation. A light cotton gauze dressing may be used.
Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. If this happens, keep taking the medicine as prescribed. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics.
