CANESTAN-S - CLOTRIMAZOLE
CANESTEN-S - Beclometasone dipropionate or beclomethasone dipropionate, also referred to as beclometasone, is a potent glucocorticoid steroid. In the form of an inhaler (e.g. Becotide, Qvar), a wide number of brands of which are available, it is used for the prophylaxis of asthma. As a nasal spray (e.g. Beconase, Vancenase), it is used for the treatment of rhinitis (e.g. hayfever) and sinusitis. In some instances it is used by oral pathologists in the treatment of unusually severe canker sores. As a cream or ointment (trade name Propaderm) it is used to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders (e.g. eczema) unresponsive to less potent steroids, but is generally avoided in the treatment of psoriasis due to the risk of rebound on withdrawal.
CANESTEN-S is an antifungal medication commonly used in the treatment of fungal infections of both humans and animals such as vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush, and ringworm. It is also used to treat athlete's foot and jock itch.
