Ever since being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I have struggled with a fungal infection down below. The canesten cream clears it up then it comes back. My doctor had kindly spared me the embarrassment of having to show him every time and I had the item available to custom request for prescription. However this as now changed according to the doctors receptionist who telephones me earlier and said this and other items now have to be bought over the counter. Has any else heard this and is it definitely correct.
