Canesten Internal Cream 10% is a single application, full course treatment for vaginal thrush. Three out of four women will suffer from thrush at some point in their lives. Thrush is an infection caused by the yeast Candida, which usually happily lives in the body without causing any harm. Candida can multiply however and cause problems when the natural pH balance of the vagina is upset. Common symptoms of vaginal thrush include itching, soreness & redness around the outside of the vagina, and in some cases a creamy white, odourless vaginal discharge can occur.
Canesten Internal Cream 10% is a soothing intravaginal cream in a prefilled applicator for treatment at the site of infection. It contains the active ingredient clotrimazole, which belongs to a group of medicines called azoles. This antifungal agent works by killing the yeast fungus that causes a vaginal thrush infection.
