Canesten Thrush Internal Cream Treatment, 5g

Canesten Thrush Internal Cream is a single application, full course treatment for vaginal thrush. It is a soothing intravaginal cream in a prefilled applicator for treatment at the site of infection.
Only use this product if you have been previously diagnosed by your doctor as having vaginal thrush.
The active substance in Canesten Thrush Internal Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines
called azoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of infections such as vaginal thrush

What is Vaginal Thrush?

Vaginal thrush (candidiasis) is a common infection that most women suer from at some time in their lives and is not caused by lack of personal hygiene.
Thrush is caused by a yeast (fungus) called Candida which lives harmlessly in the vagina and other parts of the body, without you even noticing it. However, the natural balance that keeps Candida under control can be upset by many factors such as hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, perfumed soaps, bath additives and tight clothing.

Thrush tends to grow in warm, moist conditions and develops if the balance of bacteria changes.

This can happen if:

  • your skin is irritated or damaged
  • you’re taking antibiotics
  • you have poorly controlled diabetes
  • you have a weakened immune system (for example, because of HIV or chemotherapy)
  • you’re having hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • you’re pregnant

If the natural pH balance is altered, the level of yeast increases and can develop into a thrush infection causing any of the
following symptoms: persistent burning and/or itching around the vagina and vulva, redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva and a whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina. Not everybody who has thrush has all these symptoms; you may have only one of them.


  • white vaginal discharge (often like cottage cheese), which does not usually smell
  • itching and irritation around the vagina
  • soreness and stinging during sex or when you pee

How to avoid future recurrences of thrush:

✓ Wear cotton knickers and loose clothing.
✓ Wash daily.
✓ After going to the toilet, wipe yourself from the front to back as a thrush infection may be transferred from the bowel.
✓ Change your sanitary protection regularly.
✗ Try to avoid wearing tights, nylon knickers and close fitting jeans.
✗ Try to avoid washing with perfumed soaps or using vaginal deodorants.
✗ Do not wash or rub yourself hard with sponges or flannels and avoid hot baths with strong perfumed oils.
If you are still worried or have any questions about the symptoms or the treatment of thrush, do not hesitate to ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice

How To Use

If Canesten Thrush Internal Cream has been prescribed for you by
your doctor, follow any instructions he/she may have given you.
If you purchased this product without a prescription, follow these
directions closely:
The cream should be inserted as high as possible into the vagina,
preferably before going to sleep at night for convenient and
comfortable treatment.
Wash your hands before removing the foil from the blister pack
and again afterwards when you have used the applicator

1. Remove the applicator from the packaging. Keeping the cap in
place, insert the tip of plunger A into the applicator B

2. Twist and pull to remove the cap C. Be careful not to press the
plunger in any further before you have inserted the applicator
into the vagina. This will avoid wasting any cream.

3. Carefully put the applicator as deep as is comfortable into the
vagina (this is easiest when lying on your back with your knees
bent up). Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the
plunger until it stops so that the pre-measured dose of cream is
deposited into the vagina.

4. Remove the applicator. Dispose of the applicator in a safe
place, out of the reach of children. The applicator cannot be
flushed down the toilet.
The cream is deposited in the vagina, but it is quite common to
notice a slight discharge after using the cream and therefore it
may be helpful to wear a panty liner. This does not mean that the
treatment has not worked.
The symptoms of thrush should disappear within three days of
treatment. If no improvement is seen after seven days you must
tell your doctor. If the infection returns after seven days you may
use one further treatment, but if you have more than two
infections within six months you should see your doctor.

Canesten® Internal Cream is for use in the vagina only:
Do not put the cream in your mouth or swallow it.
If the cream is swallowed accidentally, tell your doctor straight away
or contact the Accident and Emergency Department of your
nearest hospital.

Keep this medicine out of the sight and reach of children.
Do not store above 25°C.
Do not use Canesten Thrush Internal Cream after the expiry date
which is stated at one end of the carton, on the applicator and on
the applicator foil wrapping. The expiry date refers to the last day
of that month.
