Clean Dry 1% Cream is an anti-fungal medication used to treat vaginal and skin yeast or fungal infections, rashes, oral thrush, athlete’s foot, jock itch, ring worm etc. It can be either taken orally as a medicine or can be applied as an ointment to the skin.

Clean Dry 1% Cream prevents yeast and fungi to produce ergosterol, an essential component to form their cell membrane. It causes holes to develop on the cells and result in cell contents to leak, thereby weakening the cell membrane and finally leading to death of the micro-organism.
