2 weeks: I think 2 weeks of applying the medication would be a fair time frame. Keep in mind not all medication works on all coonditions and sometimes you may have to switch to a different medication. On the feet, you can try applying a mositurizer first as the skin on the bottom of the foot is thicker and tis will soften to allow better penetration of the antifungal. ...Read more

Without: Without being able to examine you, it's difficult to say what could be causing your rash. Fungal infections can be tricky and can take weeks to go away. That being said, if it has been weeks and you see no improvement with your current treatment (which should be effective for most skin fungal infections) you should call your doctor. They may want to take another look at it, possibly take a culture and depending on what they see, either keep you on the same treatment or change to a different medication. If your doctor is unable to figure out what it is, they may recommend a dermatologist (skin specialist) who may be able to help. ...Read more

Only for yeast: Clotrimazole (and all drugs ending in "azole") are anti-fungal antibiotics. They only work against yeast (candida) and fungal infections. If your vaginal rash is due to yeast, clotrimazole cream probably will help, but it won't work against anything else. Some genital area rashes can be serious, so don't guess. You need to see a doctor or clinic to diagnose the rash. Good luck! ...Read more
Similar antifungals: These medicines are quite similar, and often doctors use them interchangeably. The question as to 'what site' is involved may determine which product gets used. I have faith that either one would work fine for minor fungal infections. If these over the counter products don't help, then it's time to take it to the next level -call a doc. Infectious disease docs know the most about fungal infections ...Read more
