cleared up my horrible itch in a matter of days
September 14, 2017
This product, along with anti-fungal wash from Purely Northwest, cleared up my horrible itch in a matter of days. What a relief! Thank you for this stuff and know that I will buy again.
great value generic for Lotramin AF
September 7, 2017
I bought a package that contained five (5) identical items:
1oz (28g) tubes of "Family Care" generic brand of Clotrimazole 1% antifungal medicated cream. "original strength"
It works just as well as branded products in retail stores.
The package label says: "compare to the active ingredient of LOTRIMIN(R) AF"
Distributed by: United Exchange Coro., 17211 Valley View Ave, Cerritos CA 90703
Made in Korea.
The cream is odorless and that's good.
I'm glad to have five tubes for the typical cost of one tube. The tube and cap are white plastic, and it appears to be TSA air travel compliant. I recommend this and will buy again when I'm able to consume all five tubes.

I use this in homemade diaper cream and the consistency is great, it being one ounce vs half an ounce is great and the price beat all the others by a landslide!!
June 20, 2017
Great product at a great price.
February 27, 2017
I'm prone to athlete's foot between my toes. I use this daily on my feet after a shower and never have any issues now. Cost is way less than purchasing something at the store and works as well.
June 5, 2016
I was experiencing lots of dryness on both my feet, so dry it would itch a little at times..
I began using this product and I have noticed a 98% healing on one tube; since I bought a 3 pack, I guess no worries!
This product can also be used with excellent results on almost all types of skin irritations. DO NOT TRY it near the eyes though.
A shirt gave me a little under arm irritation and this product was a true miracle.
Considering its cost in compare with similar products, I recommend it highly.
Works just fine
May 30, 2016
This stuff worked for my tinea outbreak as long as I applied it regularly and controlled my sweating (I used a tea tree body powder for feet to keep dry). The price is very low compared to other types of creams for fungus, which is great.
The smell is pretty medicinal, and it will get your clothes a little white. I have had success using this with powders and selsun shampoo washes. Just try to keep dry and cool and patient.
Step 2 in our Athlete's Foot program
December 6, 2015
*Editing now that I have a fully fleshed out set of products to clear up athlete's foot.*I have three boys who are all active in sports and the two in middle school also are required to use the locker room which is just a breeding ground for athletes feet. The clotrimazole works well in conjunction with good washing and drying habits. We've also added a few more products to our arsenal in the war on Athlete's Foot.The biggest hurdle is just getting the boys to remember to use it until their feet are completely fungus free! We use Artnaturals Antifungal Soap with Tea Tree Oil - 100% Natural Best Foot and Body Wash 12 Oz, Helps with Nail Fungus, Athletes Foot, Ringworm, Jock Itch & Body Odor - Kills Bacteria & Relieves Itching to clean and then they dry their feet and toes really good. Next is the Clotrimazole and finally when they put their socks or shoes on in the morning before school they use Zeasorb Antifungal Treatment Powder, Athletes Foot, 2.5oz. Lastly I use Natural Shoe Deodorizer, Foot Deodorant Spray for Athletes. Removes Odor, Stink From Bacteria. Mint Spray Freshens Better Than Powders, Antiperspirants, Insoles, Sneaker Balls. Use on Feet and Shoes. in their shoes/shoe boxes to keep the front room smelling like sweaty boy shoes. Together these products make a killing team!
Perfect for Diaper Rash
September 7, 2015
I was very thankful to find so many tubs of this together as we use this for our daughters diaper rash. Yes that is right I said diaper rash. A combination of Neosporin and Clotrimazole antifungal medicine works absolutely amazing for a nasty case of diaper rash. Very thankful our DR recommended this as it works ten times than any prescription. I cannot rate it based off of anything else as this is all we have used it for, but please share with any desperate momma you know because this truly works miracles on our sweet princess' booty. In less than 12 hours you will see an amazing difference and it only takes a small amount!
Very good for Tinea Versicolor
July 17, 2015
I had been trying everything to get rid of the tinea versicolor rash that covered large areas of my torso. Went to the doctors multiple times over the years. Usually was given an oral anti fungal, seemed to always be a temporary fix. Rash would come back within a couple weeks or a month at most. Tried many different lotions as well and none of them helped in any way. Decided to give Clotrimazole a try, it worked very well. Rash was gone within a week and hasn't returned in over two months.

Not sure if it works that well. I used 6 tubes and still had the fungus has to go to a dermatologist, still have it. What cured it is all natural black seed oil.

Your Anti-Fungal Options
May 7, 2016
There are many different kinds of fungi and there is no one product that kills all of them. Any statements about "this product worked for me" are almost worthless. What works for my fungus may not work for your fungus. This is not a reflection on the quality of the product. It is only a reflection of the fact that you and I have different types of fungus. The best that I can do is to tell you about some different things to try for your particular fungus. 1% Clotrimazole is a good place to start. If that does not work, then try a stronger anti-fungal (2% Clotrimazole) or try a different type of anti-fungal.
Below are some of your options. All OTC products mentioned below were available on Amazon as of 5/17/2016.
Creams and Gels
- You can buy 1% Tolnaftate cream here: Tinactin or Family Care Tolnaftate Cream.
- You can buy 1% Clotrimazole cream here: Family Care Clotrimazole Anti Fungal Cream, 1%.
- You can buy 2% Clotrimazole cream here: Clotrimazole 3-Day Vaginal Cream.
- You can buy 1% Terbinafine (Lamisil) cream here: Equate Athlete's Foot Terbinafine HCl.
- You can buy 1% Terbinafine (Lamisil) gel here: Lamisil Once. Supposedly it forms an invisible film that "allows the active ingredient to continuously fight the fungal infection over an extended period of days".
- You can buy 2% Miconazole Nitrate cream here: Monistat 7 Vaginal Antifungal Cream or you can look for generic Miconazole Nitrate.
- You can buy 4% Miconazole Nitrate cream here: Monistat 3 Vaginal Antifungal Cream.
- You can buy 6.5% Tioconazole cream here: Monistat 1 Vaginal Antifungal Cream.
- You need a prescription for things like: 2% Ketoconazole and 0.8% Terconazole. If the above products do not clear your problem up right away, you should go see your doctor. There are more effective (broader spectrum) anti-fungal creams. Your problem may not even be a fungal one.
Powders -- Powder helps to keep the area dry. Fungus grows in warm, moist areas. Do not put powder on areas that are supposed to be warm and moist.
- You can buy 1% Tolnaftate powder here: Tinactin Antifungal Powder.
- You can buy 2% Miconazole Nitrate powder here: Zeasorb, Desenex, or Lotrimin Antifungal Powder or you can look for a generic Miconazole powder.
- You can buy 1% Ketoconazole spray here: Ketohex Spray. Note that this is FOR PETS. Use it on humans at your own risk. This also contains 2% Chlorhexidine which is an anti-bacterial. I find that this product is easy to apply in areas where creams and powders are particularly difficult to apply. It also seems to be pretty effective.
Soaps and Shampoos
- You can buy 1% Ketoconazole shampoo here: Nizoral AntiDandruff Shampoo. The problem is that you wash it off right after you put it on. Supposedly it adheres to hair and is more effective on hairy areas.
Tea Tree Oil
- You can buy various liquids, creams, soaps, and shampoos with Tea Tree Oil (a natural anti-fungal). The ones that I have tried have been somewhat harsh on the skin -- drying and irritating.
Pills and Capsules
- You need a prescription for things like: Terbinafine, Itraconazole, or Fluconazole capsules. If topical treatments are not working, you may need a systemic medication. Long before you get to this point, you should be talking to your doctor. This is only mentioned here so that you can ask your doctor about it if he/she has not already mentioned the possibility of a systemic.
- Often topical anti-fungals do not work on problems with the fingernails and/or toenails. The fungus is too deep for a topical anti-fungal to get at it. An oral antifungal like Terbinafine (Lamisil), Itraconazole (Sporanox), or Fluconazole (Diflucan) can often take care of the problem. Itraxonazole worked for me. Take a pill once a month for 3 months and all of your nails start clearing up. It may take many months for a new healthy nail to grow in place. All of these require a prescription. Talk to your doctor.
- Go see your doctor. I am not a doctor, and I am not offering you any medical advice.
- Read the warning label and follow the instructions on the box.
- Wikipedia has pretty good information on the various anti-fungal medications (Clotrimazole, Miconazole, Terbinafine, etc.). Read about it before you use it.
- 2% cream is 2% cream. If you are a jock and you are embarrassed about using a "vaginal cream", put a piece of black tape over the word "vaginal".
- Keep applying the medication after the problem appears to have gone away, as stated in the directions. Otherwise, it will likely come back.
- Talk to your doctor about a maintenance plan to keep any new infections away.
- There are many types of fungi. There is not one anti-fungal product that kills all fungi. In general, prescription products kill a broader range of fungi than OTC products.
- Look for a cheaper generic product. 1% Clotrimazole is 1% Clotrimazole.
It helps to heal
February 20, 2016
Got this for my dad. Once in a while he gets fungal infections on his upper arms and back and he said this product helos in healing them fast. They dont smell nor sting and he only needs a very small amount to cover the affected area so this will last him a long time. Price is a good deal too.
November 19, 2015
Works well for fungal infection. Got rid of mine in a couple of weeks.
first product to actually work for me
November 17, 2015
I'm currently using this to fight a tinea versicolor rash that I have had for a while. I tried a different anti fungal product that did NOTHING. I am finally starting to see improvement and my skin is returning to a normal color.
Please be aware that you need to make lifestyle changes while using this product. If you work out a lot, get out of those sweaty clothes and wash with an antimicrobial soap ASAP. Don't sit in sweaty gym clothes excessively. If you're someone who sweats excessively, you might want to consult a doctor.
Great price for this much quantity.
December 13, 2014
Great price for this much quantity, and delivered. Formulation seems to work on a par with Lotrimin, though I've only used it once, so far. Washes off hands easily, like Lotrimin. My burnin' nads thank you.

Product shipped fast and has good packaging. However, it doesn't appear to be curing the fungal infection on my leg. Perhaps I need a product with a different main ingredient.
It works better. I wish someone would have told me

If you have jock itch, Buy acid lotion. It works better. I wish someone would have told me.
packing is good and Amazon Prime shipping is great

This stuff does not seem to work as well as other brands I've bought in the past. But the price is low, packing is good and Amazon Prime shipping is great.
this slow-acting fungistatic cream is only as effective as patients are compliant
December 26, 2015
I bought this product for my parents (one of whom is diabetic) several weeks ago because they both have moccasin-type athlete's foot, so this review is probably most relevant to those looking to treat the same.Background: Clotrimazole is a first generation over-the-counter antifungal that is fungistatic (it interrupts membrane development of growing fungal cells), but it is not fungicidal. Consequently, it requires a long treatment time of four weeks. Additionally, in order to maintain therapeutic levels of the drug in the area of treatment, the cream must be applied twice daily (though three times per day is preferable). It is well-tolerated by most patients and can be obtained inexpensively. It does have a lower cure rate than newer generation drugs. However, this may be attributed to the cumbersome, four-week long treatment time and increased challenge of achieving full patient compliance.If you are more price-sensitive than you are time-sensitive AND diligent about applying this cream 2-3 times daily for the full course of treatment, this cream is probably an acceptable option for you. However, more expensive products with shorter treatment times do require less product comparatively, so remember to factor the full cost of treatment in your calculation (not just cost per tube).Returning to the case study on my parents: I just this evening had the displeasure of learning that they have been extremely lax about applying this product regularly despite my unequivocal emphasis upon giving it to them that they follow treatment instructions exactly. In response, I explained to them the fungistatic-NOT-fungicidal nature of the product (and why it is therefore a complete waste of product when they just apply it willy nilly) in hopes that their understanding will improve their compliance. I'm going to buy another 5-pack for each of them, and, if it is not successful this time, then I will try them on topical terbinafine, which is also effective against moccasin-type athlete's foot. (Terbinafine is a second generation over-the-counter antifungal that is fungicidal, so it requires a shorter treatment time of only 2 weeks. As with clotrimazole, the cream needs to be applied twice daily.) As a last resort, if neither the clotrimazole or terbinafine creams are effective, then I will likely insist that they obtain a prescription for oral terbinafine, which is taken once daily for four weeks.
I would choose UMF Manuka honey or silvercell aintibacterial instead
January 30, 2017
Okay product. It worked well after 2 weeks of daily use but didn't work on many other family rashes! Although silvercell, some Chinese ointment works wonders in little time. Bacteria won't grown orblivd in Manuka honey
No noticeable difference
December 14, 2016
Have not noticed much difference, though I am unsure if my actual issue was jock itch or dry skin. I did notice that it seems to make it itchier when first put on due to it adding moisture to the area.
Does not work great.
September 22, 2016
I purchased this at a regular price with no discount and unfortunately it did not work for me. Been using for more than a month but nothing happens. The only thing that works to clear up my neck was the prescription I got from my doctor. The product did not cause any irritation though so it's good.
4 weeks, twice a day treatment.
July 9, 2015
The price is great. My thought when I saw these in the Amazon store was, "Wow! This is less than the price of one tube of name brand stuff in the stores!" Well the reason for that is that this medication is the 4-week kind. Tinactin and Lotrimin allow for 2 weeks of use if used twice a day to treat athlete's foot. This medication needs to be used twice a day for 4 weeks, so you basically need at least 2 tubes of the three to treat the basic condition. The extra tube is nice to have on hand. If you're OK with double the treatment course, this can't be beat. The expiration for the tubes I received was in October of 2017, so plenty of potency time.
Probably Not Strong Enough for Chronic Jock Itch
April 1, 2015
I wish it had worked for me, I really do. After 4 weeks of treatment, it finally seemed to cure my jock itch, which would return the next month. I've bought 3 more bottles and end up using all three for a month. It takes a long time to work, and then it just comes back later. I've had jock itch on and off for years, and it's probably time I bite the bullet and head to the doctor, because nothing seems to work.

DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. CHEAP PRICE, CHEAP PRODUCT!

My husband bought this product for jock itch; however this product had side effect and made it even worse. He had to urgently go to the pharmacy and buy a spray for immediate relief. Unfortunately, returns are not allowed for this product even with Prime membership. We are stuck with a pack of five creams which has no use for us and the product does not even work in the first place. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. CHEAP PRICE, CHEAP PRODUCT!

For my hand eczema it made it worse because it added for blisters. Don't buy for hand eczema, go see your doctor or go to a urgent care and they will prescribe something 10times better than this.
Waste of $
July 12, 2015
Didn't work for me. My 12yr past pull date Lotromin (sp), does. Guess I have the wrong type of fungus. Is there a right type of fungus to have?
