side effects of expired canex v

Hi. Can you please tell me what the symptoms of using expired canex v are? ## In this case, since it is an antifungal cream that's commonly used treat yeast infections, the worst side effects would like be a funny odor and skin irritation, according to the NIH. It doesn't become dangerous, nor will it necessarily cause any harm, except for possibly a rare infection, if it is too old and has gone bad. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Canex has expired 6 months ago can I still use it

Expiration Date of antifungal creams

I have tubes of Naftin and Econazole nitrate cream that have an expiration date of 9/11 and 11/11 on the crimp edge. Are they still good for treating athlete's foot between toes and for nail fungus on toes? ## Since they expired over a year ago, it's doubtful that they will be effective at treating anything now. All medications start to lose effectiveness over time and when it comes to a cream or liquid, they degrade even faster than tablets or other formulations. Learn more Naftin details here. Learn more Econazole details here. Thus, it would be best to get new tubes of them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can you use an anti-fungal liquid for nails after the expiration date (which is 3/17)? ## Can you use Fungicure after expiration?

Perhaps if you are more specific, those can be addressed, and someone can give you more information on how likely they are to occur, and how severe they might be.
