What is Clzole vaginal cream and what is it used for?

Clozole vaginal cream belongs to a class of drugs called antifungals and is used to treat the vaginal yeast infection known as Candida. Candida infections result from an overgrowth of yeast fungus and cause an imbalance of the natural microorganisms that are present in the vagina. Certain illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, and fatigue can increase the likelihood of infection. Additionally hormonal changes during pregnancy, during certain times of the menstrual cycle, or due to the oral contraceptive pill, may also increase the chances of infection. Certain medications such as antibiotics and steroids may cause overgrowth of Candida.
