Canesten Vaginal Cream is a single application, full course treatment for vaginal thrush (candidiasis). It is a soothing intravaginal cream in a pre-filled applicator for treatment at the site of infection. The active substance in Canesten Vaginal Cream is clotrimazole. Clotrimazole belongs to a group of medicines called azoles and is an antifungal agent which fights the cause of infections such as vaginal thrush.

Everyone is different, so your symptoms may differ from others. They may also change each time you get thrush, whether your symptoms are mild, moderate or more complicated.
Most people experience symptoms such as:
  • An itchy vagina / vulva
  • Soreness around the entrance to your vagina (vulva)
  • Slight swelling of your vaginal lips (labia)
  • Cottage cheese-like white discharge
These symptoms aren’t uncommon:
  • Pain during sex
  • Thick discharge
  • Red and swollen labia
  • Burning around your vulva
  • Pain when you urinate
  • Sores in your vaginal area
  • Cracked skin around your vulva

How to use

  1. Wash your hands before removing the foil from the blister pack and again afterwards when you have used the applicator.
  2. Remove the applicator from the packaging. Keeping the cap in place, insert the tip of plunger A into the applicator B (approximately 1cm).
  3. Twist and pull to remove the cap C. Be careful not to press the plunger in any further before you have inserted the applicator into the vagina. This will avoid wasting any cream.
  4. Carefully put the applicator as deep as is comfortable into the vagina (this is easiest when lying on your back with your knees bent up). Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the plunger until it stops so that the pre-measured dose of cream is deposited into the vagina.
  5. Remove the applicator. Dispose of the applicator in a safe place, out of the reach of children. The applicator cannot be flushed down the toilet.
