What is Canesten internal cream?

Canesten thrush cream is a treatment for thrush that helps to combat the infection from the inside. It can make your symptoms disappear within just three days and provides relief for itching and irritation caused by thrush.


What is thrush?

Thrush is a common yeast infection and almost all women will suffer from vaginal thrush at some point in their lives. It happens when the balance of your intimate area is disturbed, letting the natural yeast, or fungus, Candida thrive. This causes thrush and leaves you with discomfort and itching in and around your vagina.


How does Canesten internal cream treat thrush?

Canesten thrush cream contains the active ingredient clotrimazole, which is an anti-fungal agent. It targets the yeast that creates thrush from the inside and works to soothe the area. This relieves itching and irritation.


How to use Canesten internal cream.

If you have purchased Canesten thrush cream to treat thrush without a prescription, follow these instructions. Remove the applicator from its packaging and attach the plunger to the applicator, then remove the cap. Insert the applicator as far into your vagina as is comfortable, like you would a tampon, and press the plunger so the cream is deposited into the vagina. Remove the applicator. Symptoms should disappear within three days.


Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?


You do not need a prescription for Canesten internal cream, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that Canesten thrush cream is the best choice for you.


When should Canesten thrush cream not be used?

Canesten thrush cream is not suitable for those younger than 16 or those older than 60. If you are allergic to clotrimazole, cetostearyl alcohol, or any of the other listed ingredients, do not use Canesten thrush cream. Do not use Canesten thrush cream if you are on your period as it may be less effective. Speak to your doctor before using Canesten thrush cream if you are unsure whether you have thrush or have had thrush more than twice in six months. If you or your partner have ever had a sexually transmitted disease, speak to your doctor before using Canesten thrush cream.
