About

Canesten thrush cream contains 2% Clotrimazole which is an antifungal ingredient that helps to fight infections such as thrush.

Thrush is caused by the natural balance of yeast becoming upset. Different factors such as pregnancy, menopause, menstruation, contraception pill, poor health, tight clothing or antibiotics can all contribute to creating the perfect environment to cause thrush.

What are the symptoms of a yeast infection?

Thrush is a common yeast infection that affects both men and women. It is usually harmless but it can become very uncomfortable and keep coming back if not treated. It is not classed as a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Thrush symptoms in women:

  • White vaginal discharge (often like cottage cheese), does not usually smell.
  • Itching and irritation around the vagina.
  • Soreness and stinging during sex or when you urinate.

Thrust symptoms in men:

  • Irritation, burning and redness around the head of the penis and under the foreskin.
  • A white discharge (like cottage cheese).
  • An unpleasant smell.
  • Difficulty pulling back the foreskin.

What causes Thrush?

Thrush is not classed as a sexually transmitted infection (STI), but it can be triggered by sex.

Thrush is caused by a fungus called candida that is normally harmless, and it tends to grow in warm, moist conditions and develops if the balance of bacteria changes.

Directions for use:

To treat the itching and soreness of the vulva, the cream should be thinly and evenly applied to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day and smoothed in gently. A product to treat the internal vaginal infection should be used at the same time.

Treatment should be continued until symptoms of the infection disappear.

Treating your sexual partner… if your sexual partner is treated with this cream, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2 or 3 times a day for up to two weeks.
