Found 9th Jan 2016
From a quick comparison seems like a good deal especially as it includes delivery.

If you're of a somewhat delicate disposition, look away now:

Clotrimazole 1% Cream (20g) is an external treatment for treating skin infections like athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm and other fungal infections. It contains the active ingredient Clotrimazole which acts as an antifungal and prevents fungus growth.

Try Vick vapour rub.
I would not use that, I grow something like porcini taste fungis on my feet, they are lovely fried with butter

Amorollfine (Curanail), though it depends if the infection is at the top or bottom of the nail
Jock Itch aka "Chub Rub"

Personally I find that Clotrimazole isn't that effective as it used to be. Trimovate Cream is 10x better, but sadly only available on prescription I believe ...

Good price though

​Go see your GP. Even better if your prescriptions are free.

Very much overkill for most simple fungal infections as it is Clobetasone butyrate, Nystatin and the antibiotic Oxytetracycline

Yeah, get someone else to pay for it;)

Clobetasone is a corticosteroid I believe .. found in Eumovate Cream which is available over the counter. Not found it as effective as Trimovate personally, probably much weaker in strength.

Nystatin is an AntiFungal, and Oxytetracycline an Antibiotic. Potent combination overall, but like I said it's the only one that works for me Any alternatives would be happily trialled though !

As a GP I'd agree it's always best to get things checked out but I'd like to make the point that​prescriptions are not free, the NHS has to pay for them. People requesting prescriptions for cheap items you can buy over the counter are a major contributing issue in the financial crisis the service is undergoing.

Absolutely true - but only if GPs persist in prescribing for such people instead of sending them to the Pharmacy to buy it. I appreciate that this only works if GPs are all consistent in their approach but the pharmacist in our family sees plenty of wasteful and inappropriate prescribing and GPs who are not prepared to confront demanding patients.

Not knocking GPs generally - you do a difficult job, usually very well.

Hmmm I don't understand... Why would a GP give out a prescription if he/she knows the item can be purchased cheaper over the counter. I remember being given a prescription for eye drops, which I didn't know were available over the counter for much cheaper. Wouldn't it be easier to just write it down on a piece of paper instead of wasting a prescription form? Thankfully my pharmacist is very open and honest. Others may not be and would just fulfil the prescription just so the person pays more.

Anyway, if you have a long standing or recurrent bout of candidiasis it's probably better to see your GP than to use any old cream. They can take a swab and send it to the lab for identification and test which anti fungal would work best for you or it may not even be a fungus/yeast in the first place.....

​some people have to have all meds on prescription for others to be able to administer. I buy what I can over the counter, but my son has to have everything even paracetomal on prescription for when he's at respite.

If you visit a GP it is their decision on whether you get a prescription or not. In Scotland it's probably surfer for a GP to say no as they are 'Free' for everyone. However NI pays for the NHS so I do pay something for it.
All this aside I'm sure it's cheaper to go direct to a pharmacist and get a minor ailments treatment prescription than tie up a GP on £X per hour.

Virgin Coconut Oil. It works wonders and also treats Athelete's foot.
I'm sure someone will say it can be dangerous or that a GP will advise against it. However it is a food stuff that is perfectly safe to ingest so a little application to a skin/nail surface can't be that bad.
It's a natural anti-fungal so keeps medicines for more serious applications. Also anti-fungal tablets can destroy your liver so this is much safer.

Coconut oil is dangerous. You rub it all over your feet and you might slip over and break your neck.
Might buy this for my neighbour. He's an irritating c***.....

If it is not responding to simpler drugs, then it might well be appropriate to have it prescribed, but it is most definitely not an alternative in situations where Clotrimazole would work as well.

The absence of bacterial infection would be innapropriate for prescribing a cream containing antibiotic, resistance has occured due to overprescribing; and in those cases an antifungal containing a simple low strength corticosteroid such as hydrocortisone would be an option. Clotrimazole and hydorcortisone creams are cheaply available over the counter

Tea Tree Oil is Oestrogenic too, not something I would want to use, as a man.

Chubb Rub I can confirm this is the main cause of my Jock itch. TY for the heads up OP! Have some heat
