Canesten AF Dual Action Cream is used to treat athlete's foot or jock itch. The active substance in Canesten AF Dual Action Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called imidazoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of fungal skin infections.

What is Athlete’s Foot:

Athlete's foot is one of those irritating skin problems that just seem to appear and then stubbornly refuse to go away. Treated effectively though, it doesn't have to hang around for long. Athlete's foot is a common fungal infection of the skin, typically appearing between the toes but also on the soles and sides of the feet. Lots of us get it, in fact as many as 1 in 4 people will suffer at some point.

What are the symptoms:

The most irritating symptom of athlete's foot is itchy feet, but if left untreated the skin may start to flake or become cracked and painful. Occasionally it may become infected with bacteria, which you notice by an unpleasant odour. It is important to check your feet regularly because, despite the name, anyone can get athlete's foot and it's actually quite common. Some people leave their athlete's foot alone in the hope that it may vanish, but unfortunately without proper treatment this is not likely to be the case.


If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying the cream.

Canesten AF Dual Action Cream should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas two or three times daily and rubbed in gently.

The treatment should be continued for at least one month to prevent re-infection.

If you have athlete's foot, it may help to use an antifungal dusting powder as well. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend one.
