Hi,

You can use anti-fungal spray with miconazole, or clotrimazole as ingerdients. Both are effective. The correct way to use the spray is to clean the area with water, dry it and then apply the medicine. Also, follow the directions on the package, and don't stop using the medicine just because your symptoms go away. Use the medicine exactly as the label says. If symptoms do not improve after 2 weeks, call your doctor.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards
