Can I use this cream for balanitis?


Q: Hello, for the past few months I have been suffering from a red itchy rash on the glans of the penis (as well as some small dimples). After some research I found out that it is likely to be a case of Balanitis. I bought some Canesten cream to try and help it, but later realised that it said inside that, that particular product was only meant to be used on Women. After checking it out I found out that most Canesten cream can be used on both men and women. The cream I'm talking about is a 10g tube of Clotrimazole, 200mg 2 percent ww. My main question, is this cream ok to be applied on me?
