What is Canesten External Thrush Cream?
Canesten Thrush External Cream is used to treat the external symptoms of an internal thrush infection.

If you need to treat internal thrush, try Canesten Pessary 500mg or Fluconazole 150mg oral capsules, or ask the My London Pharmacy team for more information.

What exactly is thrush?
Thrush, which is caused by a yeast infection, is quite common. Candida, a type of fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments, causes thrush. Thrush is more likely to develop as a result of the following factors:

  • irritated skin
  • Hormone changes, such as those associated with pregnancy or menopause
  • HIV or chemotherapy have weakened your immune system.
  • Is thrush a temporary or permanent condition?
  • Thrush is a harmless infection that can cause discomfort and come back after treatment.

Is thrush contagious in men?
Despite the fact that thrush is commonly associated with women, it can also affect men.

The infection can be contracted by men through sexual contact with an infected woman. Despite this, thrush is not considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI) (Sexually Transmitted Infection).

Canesten Thrush External Cream is appropriate for who?
External thrush can affect anyone between the ages of 16 and 60. If you are allergic to clotrimazole or any of the other ingredients in the cream, you should not use it. Before using, consult a doctor or a member of the My London Pharmacy team if you have a STI or an illness.

Is it safe to use this cream while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Use Canesten Thrush External Cream only under the supervision of a midwife or doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Canesten External Thrush Cream should be used how often?
The cream should be applied two to three times a day to the affected area around the vagina for women. Before gently rubbing in the cream, it should be applied thinly and evenly. It should be used for a maximum of seven days. For men, apply the cream two to three times a day to the end of the penis for up to two weeks.

Are there any negative consequences?
In general, this product is well tolerated. Some people, like everyone else, may experience side effects or be allergic to the cream. The following are symptoms of an allergic reaction:

  • Rash
  • Having trouble breathing
  • Having difficulty swallowing
  • Lips, face, tongue, and throat swelling
  • Dizziness

What to do if Canesten Thrush External Cream causes you to have side effects or an allergic reaction?
