Expired Clotrimazole

Have a tube of Clotrimazole Beta. Dipro. cream, 1%. Don't know how long I've had it and can't interpret date code on end of tube. It is 669K 00T12 -- please tell me what the expiration date is. ## Look at the metal end of the tube and you will see the expiration date. You may need a magnifier. It is etched. ## Bob, can you see the manufacturer name on there anywhere? If so let me know, maybe it would be possible to contact them with that lot # and they could know the date based on that? And Jasmine's suggestion is probably right too, any luck with that? Interested to know either way. ## I posted the "Exp. date" etched on the end of the tube. But it's not a date!

Hi. I have pimples on my face and my doctor recommended Canex T, but from the posts I read here the cream is for vaginal infections.

That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## One product we found is called Gelmicin, a topical antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal.

Terbinafine for fungal infections

I have yeast on my foot, blisters, pus, skin peeling, and a foul oder. Will this medication help me? ## Hello, Niesha! How are you? Yes, Terbinafine is an antifungal medication. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, indigestion, headaches and vertigo. However, you should only take it, if your doctor has confirmed that you have a yeast infection and that is the appropriate medication for you. There are other problems that could also cause these types of symptoms and this isn't the appropriate medication for all and could even worsen some. ## My. Dr has put me on a script for Terbinafine for treating fungal disease in toenails. I read online that it has side effects. I am 69 years old and my COPD was cured from hcv. 6 yrs ago on Epclusa, though I still get nausea a...

Terbinafine Side Effects

Is weight gain a possible side affect of Apo-Terbinafine? Does it have cortisone or something like that? My dermatologist told me to take a pill a day for a whole month in order to treat the fungus in my big toe (which came out of I have no idea where since I always wash and dry my feet super well! But I hate taking pills and am worried about side effects that might not be "mentioned." ## HI, Jess! I understand your concerns. As to the fungus, you really don't have to do anything to get such a thing, regardless of your hygiene, they are very easy to pick up. Terbinafine is an antifungal and no, from what I've found it hasn't been known to cause weight gain. That is the active ingredient, there is nothing else hidden in it. The most common side effects may include dia...

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?

Worried about taking Itraconazole

Hello, I've have resistant ringworm for awhile now. I usually take oral terbinafine and it clears up but comes back about 3 months later. My dermatologist has prescribed Itraconazole 100 MG to take twice daily for 14 days. The listed bad side effects of this medicine worried me. Also, I have read that if you take 200 MG per day, you should only take for 7 days and then wait three weeks. Is it safe to take this medicine at this dose? I'm 52 years old and don't take any other medicines. Please advise! ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? What particular side effects worried you? 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.

expired clotrimazole vaginal tablets

i just wanted to find out how safe it is to use expired Clotrimazole Vaginal tablets. the tablets expired in April 2010 but the packing is still intact. ## Hi! I had vaginal discharge and I went to clinic they gave me clotrimazole viginal tablet,I used it then the following day as it comes out,it came with menstruation.So am little bit confused cos it wasn't my period time.Is it normal? ## Roberts, they do not become dangerous, once they are expired, but they may lose efficacy, according to NIH reports, so they may not work as well as they did, when new. Juliet, it is normal for some of it to be discharged, and for you to experience spotting, according to NIH studies. Other side effects may include irritation, itching, and skin redness. How are you both doing, now? ## I used a clotr...

Nystatin ointment for insect bites

Can nystatin ointment be used on insect bites such as ant or mosquito bites to help the itching relief??? ## Hello, Kay Kay! How are you? No, this is an antifungal medication, so it won't do anything to help with such issues. It would be best to use something specifically made to treat those irritations. Nystatin only treats fungal conditions, such as yeast infections. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, I was about to do this till I saw your post. Very useful thanks ## If you get the insect bite infected by scratching it nystatin should be ok to use then ## Can I put benedryl cream on my 7 month old for mosquito bites?

Fluconazole/staph infections

As to the Fluconazole, it is an antifungal medication, so whether or not it will help depends on the specific type of infection you have. When treating staph, it is usually used in combination with other medications. Ref: Medline Plus Fluconazole The FDA warns that Fluconazole may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications?

Don't squeeze the bottle

It didn't take long to realize that squeezing the bottle would drain it all too quickly. Much better to simply hold it upside down for a few seconds while the brush acts as a wick, then, once wet, drag it across the affected nails, ensuring you can feel wetness. In other words, forget about administering a certain number of drops. Just do what you need to do to keep that brush wet. I'm fortunate that, under Medicare and Tricare-for-Life, three bottles cost me only $16 when ordered from Express Scripts. ## I'm two-thirds of the way into this regimen and visible fungus has been reduced by at least 90%. ## I have just completed the full treatment of three 90-day periods of Jublia application to my two affected toenails, and am happy to report that about halfway through the thir...
