Canesten 2% thrush cream. Thrush is a common infection that most women suffer from at some time in their lives and is not caused by lack of personal hygiene. It†is caused by a yeast (fungus) called candida which lives harmlessly in the vagina and other parts of the body. However, the natural balance that keeps candida under control can be upset by many factors such as hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, perfumed soaps, bath additives and tight clothing.
If the level of yeast increases, it can develop into a thrush infection causing any of the following symptoms: persistent burning and/or itching around the vagina and vulva, redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva and a whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina.
If this is the first time you have had these symptoms, talk to your doctor before using any treatment.
Canesten Thrush Cream relieves irritation of the vulva (vulvitis) which is caused by thrush (candidiasis).
Although Canesten Thrush Cream provides relief from the external irritation caused by vaginal thrush, it cannot treat any internal (vaginal) cause of the infection. Ask your pharmacist to recommend a treatment for this.
Some women suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush. To reduce the frequency of these attacks, the sexual partnerís penis can be treated with this cream as well, even if they have no symptoms of thrush.
If you are unsure whether you have thrush, check with your doctor.
Do not use the cream if you have previously had an allergic reaction to the active ingredient clotrimazole or any of the other ingredients in this product. If you are unsure about this, ask your doctor.

- pain or difficulty in passing urine
