What is Canesten Thrush External Cream?

This cream is from Canesten and is designed to treat thrush. The cream should only be used for external thrush and another treatment is required for internal thrush. If you need treatment for internal thrush, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.


What is thrush?

Thrush is caused by a yeast infection and is quite common. The fungus responsible is called the candida, which grows in warm, moist environments. Thrush is a result of a bacteria change in the affected. This is normally caused by:

  • Skin irritation
  • Hormone changes, such as pregnancy or menopause
  • Taking antibiotics
  • A weakened immune system as a result of HIV or chemotherapy

Thrush is harmless but will cause discomfort and can return.


Can men get thrush?

Even though thrush is usually thought of a condition that only women are affected, men can get it. However, men can only get it from a woman who is affected when having sex. Despite this, thrush is not classified as an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection).


Who is this Canesten cream suitable?

It is suitable for anyone aged between 16-60 who is suffering from the effects of external thrush. It should not be used if you are allergic to clotrimazole, or any of the other ingredients contained in the cream. If you have an STI or illness, then speak to a doctor before using.


Can this cream be used when pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then it is recommended that it is only used under the supervision of a midwife or doctor.


How often should Canesten External Thrush Cream be used?

The cream should be applied to the affected area around the vagina 2-3 times a day. The cream should be applied thinly and evenly before being rubbed in gently. It should not be used for more than 7 days. For men, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2-3 times a day, for up to two weeks.

  • A rash
  • Breathing problems
