I'm using clotrimaderm 1% topical cream for a rash on the end of my penis ( I just had my prostate out ) . I was told it's likely a fungus. The water keeps coming and it's warm and damp in the absorbent under wear. Should it be used for this? Should I put it on each time I wash myself?

Yes, it's the right product for fungal infections. You should apply it 2 to 3 times a day. If the infection worsens or it doesn't get better within 10 days, it's better to consult your physician. 

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
