Canifug review

Canifug is for curing fungal infections like ringworm and vaginal yeast infections and is available over the counter in a cream and lotion. Canifug is marketed under the brand name of Lomitrin and Lomitrin AF. This medication contains two main elements: Canifug, which prevents the growth of fungus, and betamethasone, which reduces the swelling, itching, and redness common among skin infections.

Adults and teenagers take Canifug for the handling of their fungal infections. Children under 17 years of age are not root oned to use this medication.


Canifug is applied directly on the infected area. Before applying, the area should be cleaned and dried. For topper results, patients should use the medication twice every day - once in the morning and once in the evening.

Never wrap, bandage, or cover the treated area unless instructed by a physician. Loose-fitting clothes should be worn after applying Canifug to the groin area.

Canifug should never be applied to the eyes, mouth, nose, or inside the female organ. In case the medication is accidentally applied to these areas, simply flush the area with lots of water.


Dosage and length of handling are dependent on the infection that is being treated. For jock itch, the handling typically lasts 2 weeks. Athletes' foot is usually 4 weeks. Patients should not exceed 45 grams of cream or 45 milliliters for the lotion in a week.

Patients should tell their physician if their condition does not improve after a week for jock itch, and 2 weeks for athlete's foot. Continue to use Canifug until the prescribed dose is completed, even if symptoms go away after a couple of days. Stopping abruptly can result in the infection re-appearing.


Some common side effects of Canifug are burning, stinging, and dry skin. If any of these symptoms persist, patients should immediately notify their physician.

Patients may also experience rare but severe side effects such as acne, hair bumps, stretch marks, discoloration of the skin, and unexplained growth of hair.

There is also the remote possibility that the medication is absorbed into the bloodstream, triggering side effects that are common among children. These side effects may include unusual tiredness, headache, unexplained weight loss, swelling of the feet and ankles, increased micturition, and blurred vision.


Before agreeing to use Canifug, patients should inform their physician if they are allergic to medications such as ketoconazole, corticosteroids, or Canifug itself. They should also inform their physician of their medical history such as problems in blood circulation and immune system.

Elderly patients may be more sensitive to Canifug owing to their thinning skin. Children, meanwhile, are more sensitive to corticosteroid and it can slow down the rate of growth of a child.
