Description

Canesten Thrush Cream Clotrimazole

Canesten Thrush Cream Clotrimazole 2% provides external treatment for thrush and other fungal infections. It contains 2% of the active ingredient Clotrimazole which promotes a healthy pH balance and reduces thrush symptoms of itching and burning.

Who is this Canesten cream suitable?

It is suitable for anyone aged between 16-60 who is suffering from the effects of external thrush. It should not be used if you are allergic to clotrimazole, or any of the other ingredients contained in the cream. If you have an STI or illness, then speak to a doctor before using.

How does Canesten Thrush Cream Clotrimazole 2% Work?

This thrush cream uses a substance called Clotrimazole, which is a powerful antifungal agent. It is a popular active ingredient in other antifungal medicine for other infections such as athletes’ foot, jock itch and ringworm. Clotrimazole alters the fungi’s cell walls, killing it.

Can men get thrush?

Even though thrush is usually thought of a condition that only women are affected, men can get it. However, men can only get it from a woman who is affected when having sex. Despite this, thrush is not classified as an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection).

The Benefits of Canesten Thrust Cream with Clotrimazole 2%

  • Stress
  • Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
  • Menstruation
  • Wearing tight clothing
  • Pregnancy
