Why use Canderm

Firstly, Canderm is useful in fungal skin infections that appear between the toes (Athlete’s foot). Secondly, in the groin area (jock itch). Thirdly, skin folds (sweat rash), and lastly, circular rash on the body (ring worm). Specifically, Canderm powder absorbs excessive perspiration or exudate (hyperhidrosis), moisture aggravated heat and friction rashes (intertrigo), as well as soothing irritated skin and protection against skin rashes.

Canderm contains clotrimazole which is clinically proven in curing fungal skin infection. Furthermore, it reduces itching, red rash and scaling due to moist areas, as well as reducing skin friction and fungal skin infections.

Clotrimazole is the major active in Canderm. In other words, the primary mechanism is antifungal action. Thus, this leads to on-label uses mainly covering skin fungal problems.

Canderm powder also contains Zinc oxide (in addition to clotrimazole). Zinc oxide has the following benefits:

  • Skin protection
  • Soothes skin
  • Eases irritation

Canderm powder contains both clotrimazole and zinc oxide, which are clinically proven in curing fungal skin infection and in reducing itching, skin friction, and fungal skin infection. Further, it reduces red rash and scaling due to moist areas.

Specifically, Canderm in its powder form is convenient to apply and highly suitable for moist areas where it helps keep the area dry. Thus, it adds comfort for the patient. Additionally, Canderm powder is available in a floral fragrance, which feels pleasant when applied. Thus, it adds further to patient comfort.

Ointments and creams feel greasy or sticky leading to discomfort while wearing socks, or footwear. Contrarily, Canderm powder is capable of being dusted on cloth and footwear. Hence, it is preferred over ointments and creams. Specifically, areas between the toes, skin folds and in excessive perspiration where dryness is most desired.

Canderm is a quality product manufactured at a WHO approved facility.
