Canesten Soft Gel Pessary gives you effective treatment for thrush yeast infections. It works right at the site of infection and provides treatment in a single dose.
It is not recommended for use for children under 16.
Canesten pessaries are teardrop-shaped soft capsules that can be inserted at night.
It contains the active ingredient Clotrimazole which promotes pH balance and healthy bacteria, and treats any signs of fungal infection and itching.
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.

Canesten Oral Fluconazole Capsule can be used to prevent the growth of fungus and reduce itchy, burning sensations. To prevent thrush from recurring:
Usually have the chalky pessary which worked well. Tried the gel one but found that the pessary did not stay in the applicator and in trying to put it back in the thing burst squirting the medication out.
Much more comfortable than the Chalky pessary that Canestan do - easy to apply too. Larger than the normal tablet pessary - teardrop shaped but comfortable.Definitely one to do on a night in bed - the pessary dissolves and releases the thin gel like cream - white/cream colour.There is mess when you stand up - be sure to wear knickers with a panty liner in - even when in bed.But the mess goes within a few hours int he morning as opposed to 1-2 days with the normal pessary.Symptoms were gone by the morning when used with the cream.
