Description

Why Candid Cream for fungal infections?

Candid cream is effective in treating the following fungal infections:

  • Oral thrush
  • Jock itch
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Yeast infection of the vagina, skin and mouth

This medicine is frequently prescribed by most doctors to cure fungal infections because of its abrupt and long lasting effect. The effect of Candid cream is cumulative and stays in the body for 21 to 54 hours while the extended release form stays for 30 days. It is very effective to cure fungal infections at a very minimal cost.

How Candid cream works?

Candid cream works by inhibiting the growth of individual fungal cells.  The cream alters the cell wall of the fungi. It inhibits the biosynthesis of ergosterol required for cell membrane production. Candid cream limits the production of ergosterol which is an important component of fungal cell membrane. The disruption leads to the development of holes in the membrane and leakage of cell components. This results in the death of the fungi. 

How to use Candid Cream?

Candid cream should be used with your doctor’s advice. It is for external use only. Before using, clean the infected area and thoroughly dry it. Apply a thin layer of the medicine to avoid pilling the affected area. The dosage and time of treatment depend on the type of infection being treated. The most common dosage is once or twice daily preferably in the morning and evening as directed by the doctor. Do not use this product more often or longer than what is prescribed. Continue using this cream even if symptoms disappear after a few days.
