What causes thrush?

Thrush is caused when there is disruption in balance between bacteria and yeasts which naturally live within the vagina. This leads symptoms like vaginal itching, burning sensations, and a thick discharge.

It can be caused by a variety of factors like:

  • Medicines and antibiotics
  • Trauma of sexual activity
  • Tampons
  • Stress
  • Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
  • Menstruation
  • Wearing tight clothing
  • Pregnancy

Preventing thrush

Canesten Internal Cream can be used to prevent the growth of fungus and reduce itchy, burning sensations.

To prevent thrush from recurring:

  • Avoid tight, synthetic clothing
  • Avoid perfumed soaps, gels, bubble baths, vaginal deodorants and douches
  • Change tampons or pads regularly when on your period

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.

When not use Canesten Thrush Cream:

Do not use the cream if you have previously had an allergic reaction to the active ingredient clotrimazole. If you are unsure about this, ask your doctor.

  • Pain or difficulty in passing urine
  • Fever or chills
  • Feeling sick or vomiting
  • Diarrhoea

  • If you are unsure whether you have thrush, check with your doctor before using this product.

If you are pregnant or trying for a baby, tell your doctor or midwife before using Canesten Thrush Cream. If you have informed your doctor or midwife already, follow his/hers instructions carefully.
