They help provide soothing and immediate relief for the pain, itching, inflammation of the vagina and reduces the levels of Candida to normal levels. It also helps bring about a hormonal balance to your body.

Natural Remedies treat the underlying cause of the infection and also helps in removing toxins and impurities from the body. Antibiotics simply masks the infection or temporarily cures the infection - only to re-appear again in a couple of months as unlike natural remedies they do not kill the root cause of the infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    canesten....?
    I have had a thrush infection for the past 4 days, today i asked my boyfriend to pick up some canesten on the way home from work, so he just went up to the counter and asked the girl if he could grab canesten for his girlfriend, so she past him the canesten clotrimazole anti-fungal cream(broad spectrum) and i'm realising now i should have just gone with him lol but i'm dying from this itch and i just want to know if it is safe to use this kind of canesten -down there- or if i'm meant to buy tablets or something

    • ANSWER:
      Canestan will soothe the itching on the outside but it won't actually clear up the infection that is coming from the inside. I've found the best combination is a canestan capsule which you swallow, plus the cream to soothe the irritation while the capsule starts to work. (If you're in the UK get Tesco's own thrush capsules, they're half the price of Canestan and exactly the same composition.)

  2. QUESTION:
    Can you use canesten cream on the vagina walls and the clitoris?
    I have some itchyness, and a tingly feeling, that comes and goes. I'd get it mostly on the vagina walls, near the clitoris, and on the lower part near the vagina opening. I was thinking that it's mostly a yeast infection. I went to the doctor for a pap smear recently just waiting for the results. But I wanted to try the canesten cream in the meantime. So could you use that on those areas besides just on the inside of the vagina?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes U can. But use only vaginal form not that for skin.

  3. QUESTION:
    How long does canesten take to work?
    I have a possible case of thrush, (heavy itching and a little white discharge). I took a canesten oral capsule just now and wondered how long it takes to fix the thrush. Hours / days / weeks? Never had it before so no idea.
    also, do I have to use the cream aswell or is that just used for soothing the itch?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi it should work straight away

  4. QUESTION:
    Does the Canesten Pessary interfere with the contraceptive pill?
    I purchased the Canesten Pessary for thrush but wanted to check whether it would interfere with my pill (Microgynon 30). Does anyone have an answer? I forgot to ask the pharmacist!

    • ANSWER:
      No, it will not interfere with your contraceptive pill. The Canesten Pessary is clotrimazole, which is topical.

      Just to be 100% sure, I checked the active ingredients in both drugs; Microgynon 30 (ethinylestradiol + levonorgestrel) and Clotrimazole (Canesten pessary.) There are no known drug interactions.

      In future, when you have medication queries, it is always best to check with your Pharmacist.

  5. QUESTION:
    What happens if you use canesten (clotramizole) after the expiry date?
    Earlier this evening I used the Canesten Internal Cream before I realised it was 4 months past it's expiry date. It says on the instructions that you mustn't use it after it's expiry date but I can't find any info anywhere to say why not or what the consequences may be. Is it simply the case that the active ingredient will no longer be effective or is it that it becomes dangerous or harmful after this date?

    Thanks for your answers.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you will be fine, especially if it has not been opened. i asked about a different cream at the chemist and he reckons 2 years after the date is ok!

  6. QUESTION:
    What are symptoms of vaginal yeast infection? And should it be burning when I use Canesten?
    My itching is mostly gone. I've used one vaginal tablet of Canesten. But I have little sores and a bump near the back i.e. near the anus.

    This is my first time getting this and I really need some advice on what to do. How do I deal with the pain? It feels like I've got cuts down there, so I'm not even going to the bathroom because it may burn down there.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Although I think the problem is 'most-likely' long and or short term allergic reactions to 'something' COMBINED WITH a weakened lymph liver kidney and immune systems - IF the following symptoms would ever occur - I think the worst it might possibly be is deadly bacterial meningitis.

      The two quotes below are from: <> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_Meningitis <>

      <>
      “IF a rash is present, it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis; for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.”
      <>

      <>
      “The MOST common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness associated with fever, confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light (photophobia) or loud noises (phonophobia). SOMETIMES, especially in small children, only nonspecific symptoms may be present, such as irritability and drowsiness.”

  7. QUESTION:
    Can you use canesten while on birth control?
    Will canesten have an affect on my birth control if I decide to use it? Can you use Canesten and birth control at the same time? I don't want my birth control to be defected.

    • ANSWER:
      Canestan has no effect on your contraceptive pill cover.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is a canesten tablet ok to take while pregnant?
    I went to pharmacist as I have some thrush and he said just drink cranberry but I had a canesten tablet (no instructions) so thought that would be better than a pessary (stupid me) and now I have seen on a frum "never use the tablet" I am very worried.

    • ANSWER:

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there difference between Diflucan and Canesten Oral?
    Is there a difference between Diflucan and Canesten Oral? My doctor prescribed my Diflucan, but when I went to the pharmacy, they insisted that Canesten Oral was the same thing. My problem has not gone away and I was wondering whether I should go back and ask for a second prescription?

    • ANSWER:
      Difulcan is just another brand name. The generic drug is fluconazole. It's the active ingredient in Canesten Oral. It's just like how Advil and Motrin are both ibuprofen.

  10. QUESTION:
    when using canesten for yeast infection is it normal for the tablet to desolve and come back out over night?
    i have used canesten 3 and each night i inserted the tablet in the morning it had all come back out onto my underwear?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, that is totally normal, because the medicine doesn't have anywhere else to go but come back out. I usually wear a panty liner when I have to do those medications. While you are sleeping, the medicine has been in your vagina helping cure your infection, but will come back out when you stand up in the morning just due to gravity.

      hope this helps..

  11. QUESTION:
    how long will it take for canesten to work?
    I have white bits on my penis (bell end) and according to my doctor it's somme sort of fungul infection (thrush) and the doctor has prescribed me some canesten and I was wondering how long will it take until the white bits dissapear?Is canesten good stuff?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to take the Canesten pill, not just the cream - the cream helps give relief from the symptoms but only the pill will make it go away for good.

      Provided you have taken the pill you should see improvement within 48 hours and it should have completely cleared up within 4 or 5 days. If you see no improvement after a week go back to your doctor.

      If you are in a sexual relationship with the same person you were when you first got thrush you should make sure that person takes the pill as well, as you may have caught it from or given it to them.

  12. QUESTION:
    How long to use Canesten cream?
    I bought some Canesten cream today as i have very mild thrush. I've read it takes 2-3 days for the symptoms to subside but my question is how long should i leave it before having sex? I don't want my partner to get it and keep reinfecting me!

    • ANSWER:
      In clinical settings, candidiasis is commonly treated with antimycotics—the antifungal drugs commonly used to treat candidiasis are topical clotrimazole, topical nystatin, fluconazole, and topical ketoconazole. For example, a one-time dose of fluconazole (as Diflucan 150-mg tablet taken orally) has been reported as being 90% effective in treating a vaginal yeast infection.[7] This dose is only effective for vaginal yeast infections, and other types of yeast infections may require different treatments.
      The advantages of over-the-counter treatment for a yeast infection are convenience, cost and not having to wait to see your doctor. The catch is you may be treating something other than a yeast infection. It's possible to mistake a yeast infection for other types of vaginitis or other conditions that need different treatment. Using the wrong medicine may delay a proper diagnosis and the most appropriate treatment, and can lead to complications.
      You should put your undergarments in boiling water, wash them and dry in hot sunshine.

  18. QUESTION:
    Im a male with thrush. I took the canesten oral capsule earlier, how long will it take to go?
    Due to antibiotics i developed thrush, its quite painful and uncomfortable. I took the canesten oral capsule earlier on today and have been rubbing the cream on it, how long do you think it will take to go? Because its rather embarrasing and inconvenient for me. (its my anniversary tomorrow night).

    • ANSWER:
      Keep rubbing in the cream at least four times a day and your thrush should be gone by tomorrow night, the pill takes around 48 hours to completely rid you of the thrush but normally a vast improvement is found within 24 hours, so you will still be able to celebrate your anniversary. The oral pills are very effective. You might want to check that you haven't passed it on to your partner/wife because she'll need the oral pill too.

      Happy anniversary!

    • ANSWER:
      No. Canesten cream is a topical antifungal skin cream used to treat fungus infections(like a yeast infection) NOT bacterial infections. You need antibiotics from a doctor. A girl can get a bacterial infection at any time. There is nothing embarrassing about it or about talking to a doctor about it. Being mature requires you take care of yourself by seeing a doctor. I know you can do it.

      Please see a doctor before the bacterial infection spreads and makes you really sick.

    • ANSWER:
      If you take yeast infection medication and you do not have one, you can actually get a yeast infection.

      If you want to know if have an infection (and which one you have) you can get the Vagisil Screening Kit for vaginal infections. It measures the pH of your vagina and by that you can read the instructions and see if and what infection you have.

      http://www.vagisil.com/vaginal-discharge-infections-screening-kit.shtml

      You can get it at the pharmacy and costs around .

      There are thee outcomes if you have an infection: Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomoniasis, or a yeast infection.

      If you have either Bacterial Vaginosis or Trichomoniasis you will need to go to the doctor for antibiotics.

      If you have a yeast infection you can buy over the counter treatments at the pharmacy to treat it. Please don't take any pills that have not been prescribed to you.

      Good luck!

    Is canesten pessary safe to use during pregnancy?
    Im 35 weeks pregnant, and seen the doctor today and i have thrush, he gave me cream and pessary tablet but im so worried to use the tablet in case its harmful to my baby, ive read a lot of stories where people said it made them bleed, my doctor said its okay to use it but im very unsure weather i should im the type of person who wont even take paracetamol during my pregnancy because im worried about the baby.

    • ANSWER:
      It's safe. In fact it is the safest form of thrush treatment during pregnancy. The only alternative is the pill which is not considered safe during pregnancy and the cream doesn't cure the problem - it just relieves the symptoms.

      Another more natural method if you are really worried is to use live natural yoghurt. Either use your finger or a tampon to apply it as many times per day as you can and usually after about 3 or 4 days it will clear up. Just make sure you have clean hands and don't leave the tampon in long. You need to cover as much of the surface of the inside of your vagina in yoghurt each time for it to work but the bacteria in the yoghurt naturally balance the yeast causing the thrush. However if if hasn't worked after several days then the pessary is your only option.

  41. QUESTION:
    How do you know the Canesten thrush cream applicator is going down the right tube when you insert it?

    • ANSWER:
      Urine does NOT come out the vaginal canal. It comes out of the urethra, which is located in the area between your clitoris and vaginal opening. If you're not sure where it is, either look up anatomical diagrams on the internet of a woman's spread legs, or pee but spread your legs wide and hold a mirror down between your legs but away from the pee. You'll see the pee comes out a tiny opening that's only really visible when there is urine being excreted. It's a very tiny hole. Definately wouldn't be able to even stick your finger inside your urethra.

      So, as long as you're not sticking the applicator up your anus, trust me, you're putting it in the correct place. There IS only one vaginal canal, however, there IS FLESH in the vagina, and sometimes the flesh can seem like barriers or separate canals. They are not. If you're curious, wash your hands, and insert your finger into yourself and feel around. You will see there is only ONE canal up your vaginal entrance.

    Because I know it's a pill aswell and you have to be of a certain age tp buy pills etc in the UK.
    Does this type of medicine apply?
    Or will I need an adult (eep)
    Cos I wasn't planning on telling my mother but if I have to then I'll have to.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeah you can buy it alone. I think you may be able to get it off the shelf now in supermarkets or Boots, but I could be wrong - if you can't see it on the shelf, just go to the chemist counter and ask for what you want. They should give it to you. It is recommended that you tell the pharmacist if you are under sixteen or over sixty, but since you are not either, it's not a problem. If they DO ask how old you are, be honest, but I shouldn't think they will. If they won't sell it to you, they're mean, but don't be embarrassed about asking your mother. I got thrush when I was sixteen too and didn't want to buy it myself so I just said 'Man, I think I got thrush' as casually as I could and made her get me a treatment. It's nothing to be ashamed of, almost everyone will suffer from it at some point. I'd just try to laugh about it - stupid thrush :P

      If it all goes wrong and you really can't face it, try inserting a tampon dipped in some plain natural yoghurt. That's meant to restore the natural bacterial balance. Good luck!
