canex cream

Can a man use canex crean on his private part when he have some balls their? ## Hello, Don! How are you? I can't find anything that specifically lists what the ingredient is in Canex, there are various things claiming what it is, but nothing verified.

However, it will only treat fungal infections, according to the information I found, so you should see your doctor for a proper diagnosis, before using it.

Gelmicin For Nail Fungus! Help To heal?

Will Gelmicin help to eliminate toenail fungus? I bought it in Mexico and want to try it on my toe nails to kill the fungus. Any ideas? ## It's worth a try, I used it a couple of times but wasn't consisting on it, I used to use fungi pen and and would make my nails "look clear" I used it for 5 months every day but in the end it didn't work. So $10 a tube for gelmicin its worth giving it a shot, just maybe use up one tube apply twice a day since it rubs off if you wear socks and see if there's any results, I'll be doing that. ## Have you guys ever looked into trying Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca) as a natural remedy for nail fungus?
