Canesten 100mg Pessary is used to treat & relieve the symptoms of recurrent vaginal candidiasis.
Canesten 100mg Pessary Clotrimazole is a single dose pessary which works right at the site of the infection. 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
How to use Canesten 100mg Pessary Clotrimazole: For vaginal application. One pessary should be inserted into the vagina at night for six consecutive days using the applicator provided. Alternatively, two pessaries may be inserted into the vagina at night for three consecutive days.
