Canesten® Extra Antifungal Cream

Canesten Extra Antifungal Cream fights athlete’s foot and a broad range of fungal skin infections like ringworm or jock itch.

It brings convenience thanks to its once-daily application and complete relief thanks to its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory action.
Its fast absorption, high retention time and only 1 application per day make the cream effective, convenient and easy to use.
Also recommended as a follow-up to Canesten Extra fungal nail treatment.

What is athlete’s foot?

It’s a fungal skin infection caused by fungi that thrive in warm and moist environments like changing rooms, showers and public pools. Walking barefoot in these places puts you at greater risk. Athlete’s foot usually occurs between your toes, but it can also affect the soles and sides of your feet.

Good to know!

You don’t have to be an athlete to get infected and it’s not a matter of poor hygiene. Fungal skin infections may feel uncomfortable, but in most cases there’s nothing to worry about and they can be treated easily.

Common symptoms of skin fungus

  • Red rash or blisters

  • Itching, burning or stinging

  • Flaked, cracked or scaly skin

  • Splitting, softening or whitening skin

  • Unpleasant odour

When you have
athlete's foot

Athlete’s foot is a common condition. It’s not serious and not the end of the world, but the symptoms are annoying and can be even more so if the infection lingers or comes back. That’s why you shouldn’t ignore it:

A fungal infection won’t go on its own. Treat it, don’t hide it.

An infection doesn’t disappear just because symptoms do. Canesten Extra antifungal treatment needs 3-4 weeks to be completely effective.

Start treatment sooner rather than later to fight fungus more effectively.

If untreated, athlete’s foot can spread to other parts of your body and cause other types of skin fungus or fungal nail.

Care about your
loved ones

Athlete’s foot is very contagious. It not only easily spreads to other parts of your body, but also to other people. Your loved ones are especially susceptible, but there are a few things you can do:
