Canesten Internal Cream is a single-dose pre-filled 5g applicator of cream which is inserted into the vagina to effectively treat thrush at its source. It is all you need to clear your attack of thrush. What is thrush? Thrush is an infection caused by a yeast called Candida. This yeast normally lives in your body quite happily without doing you any harm. But when the natural pH balance of your vagina is upset - which can easily happen - Candida can multiply. And that's when you may start to itch and develop thrush. What are the symptoms? The main symptom - and by far the most irritating - is the itching. You may also feel a burning soreness and this can be accompanied by a whitish odourless discharge. Though very uncomfortable, these symptoms can be sorted out quickly and easily, by treating at the site of infection as well as soothing the irritation. Most women seek help for relief of external itching. However, it is important that the infection is treated internally as well as externally, to prevent symptoms from returning
Wash your hands before and after inserting the cream. Insert the contents of the prefilled applicator into the vagina preferably at night so that it can work while you sleep. If symptoms persist for more than 7 days, consult your doctor.
