Why use Canderm

Firstly, Canderm is useful in fighting 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 (ringworm). Furthermore, Canderm powder absorbs excessive perspiration or exudate (hyperhidrosis), moisture-aggravated heat and friction rashes (intertrigo), sooths irritated skin and protects against skin rashes.

Canderm contains clotrimazole which is clinically proven to cure fungal skin infections. Furthermore, it reduces itching, red rash and scaling due to moist areas,  skin friction and fungal skin infections.

Clotrimazole is the primary active ingredient 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 many benefits, including the following :

  • Skin protection
  • Soothes skin
  • Eases irritation

Canderm powder contains both clotrimazole and zinc oxide, which are clinically proven to cure fungal skin infections and reduce itching as well as skin friction. Furthermore, 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 site dry. Thus, it adds comfort for the patient. Additionally, Canderm powder is available in a floral fragrance, which feels pleasant when applied. In this way it adds further to patient comfort.

Ointments and creams feel greasy or sticky, which iff ciurse leads 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 – especially in areas between the toes, skin folds, and excessive perspiration where dryness is most desired.

Canderm is a quality product manufactured by Shalina healthcare at a WHO-approved facility.
