Canesten Combi pessary and cream are a combination of treatments designed to relieve the symptoms of thrush while tackling the cause of infection. Ideal for those suffering with itching, redness, swelling, or irritation caused by vaginal thrush.
Vaginal thrush is a yeast infection which almost every woman will suffer with at one point in their lives. It happens when the natural yeast, or fungus, in your vagina is allowed to grow due to a change in your vaginal environment. This causes an infection, which can make you feel itchy, swollen, and irritated in and around your vagina.
Canesten Combi pessary and cream both contain the active ingredient clotrimazole, which is an antifungal agent. This means that clotrimazole works to combat the yeast or fungus which causes vaginal thrush while treating the irritation caused by infection.
This pack of Canesten Combi pessary and cream contains one pessary and a tube of cream designed to treat thrush. Pessaries are medication which are inserted into your vagina, in the same way you would a tampon. For more information about how to use Canesten Combi pessary and cream, please read the patient information leaflet.
