Canesten Thrush Cream Clotrimazole 2% is a specially designed cream to provide rapid relief from external itching. It provides effective treatment and soothing relief of the itching caused by thrush. It can also be used to treat the male partner. Thrush is an infection caused by yeast called Candida. This yeast normally lives in your body quite happily without doing you any harm. But when the natural pH balance of your vagina is upset - which can easily happen - Candida can multiply. And that's when you may start to itch and develop vaginal thrush. Normally, there is a delicate balance between bacteria and yeasts that live naturally within the vagina.
Clotrimazole 400mg (2% w/w). It also contains benzyl alcohol, polysorbate 60, sorbitan stearate, cetyl palmitate, cetostearyl alcohol, octyldodecanol and purified water.
