About Kandibena

About drug inconsistent — helps someone at the milkwoman, someone considers it as useless drug. Manifestation of the milkwoman is often noted during pregnancy that finds reflection in responses.

  • "… I have 4th time for pregnancy the milkwoman, treated Kandibene's tablets".
  • "… Used candles pimafutsin, but for a while helped me. Already in maternity hospital appointed Kandibene — in my case these tablets were much more effective".
  • "… Having tried a set of tablets and candles from the milkwoman, drew a conclusion that is more effective than all Kandibene 200. It is pleasant that it is tablets and they do not follow as candles".
  • "… Could not apply vaginal tablets as every time there was a terrible burning".
  • "… Used this drug, but helped at the milkwoman only for one and a half months".

Decrease in efficiency is connected it with the fact that Clotrimazolum is traditional drug for treatment of this disease, decades is applied in obstetric and gynecologic practice and to it decrease in sensitivity of the activator is noted. Besides, the combined infection caused by mushrooms and bacteria is quite often noted, in such cases complex drugs — Makmiror a complex, Neo-penotran and Klionum D are more effective (a combination with metronidazole).

Good results were shown by Kandibene's cream at treatment from mycosis of feet without damage of nails, and also a fungal intertrigo at children.
