Clotrimazole is for thrush, daktarin is for athletes.

Should be alright in pregnancy. Maybe check with pharmacist first if you're really worried.

Bizarrely, they all say not to use if pregnant (or rather 'consult your doctor if pregnant')

Lamisil Once is superb though. The only thing that's ever worked IME. Not suitable when pregnant without doctor's advice mind you.

besides, after you have had the baby and your muscles are shot, you'll be peeing on your feet anyway grin

more pelvic floors please.... and squeeze.....

clotrimazole is fine for athletes as anti fungal used for tinea infections ie athletes foot and and tinea is also used for candida commonly known as thrush.
It is prescribed during pregnancy too.

Daktarin is miconazole ...they are both from the same family of drugs...the imadozoles..hope this helps

Washing twice a day with tea tree oil worked for me.

Tea tree oil cleared up my athlete's foot a treat.
