Canesten Thrush Cream

Canesten Thrush Cream
provides fast, effective relief from the external itching caused by vaginal thrush. If you suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush, you can also apply the cream to your partner's penis to prevent re-infection, even if they have no symptoms of thrush.

Canesten Thrush Cream contains clotrimazole, an antifungal agent to relieve irritation, and should always be used in conjunction with a thrush treatment that treats the internal cause of the infection, such as a fluconazole capsule, a pessary or an internal cream.
  • Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
  • To treat the itching and soreness of the vulva (vulvitis), the cream should be thinly and evenly applied to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day and smoothed in gently. A product to treat the internal (vaginal) infection should be used at the same time.
  • Treatment should be continued until symptoms of the infections disappear. Consult your doctor if the symptoms of your infection do not improve within seven days of finishing treatment for the internal infection.
If your sexual partner is treated with this cream, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2 or 3 times a day for up to two weeks.
  • Active Ingredient:  Clotrimazole 2% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Benzyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetyl Palmitate, Cetostearyl Alcohol, Octyldodecanol and Purified Water.
  • This product contains cetostearyl alcohol which may cause local skin irritation (e.g. rash, itching or redness).
  • As with other creams, this product may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, such as condoms or diaphragms. Consequently, you should use alternative precautions for at least five days after using this product.
  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding 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/her instructions carefully.
Do not use Canesten Thrush Cream:
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to clotrimazole or any of the other ingredients, including cetostearyl alcohol, of Canesten Thrush Cream.
Before using Canesten Thrush Cream, you should see your doctor if:
  • You are unsure whether you have thrush or this is the first time you have had these symptoms.
  • You have had more than two infections of thrush in the last six months.
  • You or your partner have ever had a sexually transmitted disease.
  • You are aged under 16 or over 60.
