How do I know it’s thrush?

6 main symptoms:

  • Itching

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Unusual discharge

  • Burning

  • Soreness

Thrush doesn’t usually change the pH level and has no odour.

No stress!

It may feel uncomfortable, but there’s no need to be scared. Thrush is not an STI or a serious condition and in most cases, it can be treated easily and effectively. It is also normal and very common – 3 in 4 women suffer from it at least once during their lifetime and it’s not caused by a lack of hygiene.

 

Canesten Thrush Cream

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

Canesten Thrush Soft Gel Pessary

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.

It is not recommended for use for children under 16.
