Thrush is a fungal infection which is caused by an overabundance of naturally occurring fungi which live in the body. In the case of vaginal thrush, these organisms are called candida. Normally, the amount of fungi present in the vagina is regulated by the body and causes no problems.
However, changes to the vagina can cause the fungi to grow rapidly and overwhelm the natural defences which regulate the organisms.
You may be more at risk of developing a yeast infection if you:
Vaginal thrush is often diagnosed based on the symptoms of the condition. These symptoms include:
These symptoms may the sign of a different vaginal infection. If you are experiencing these symptoms for the first time, or are unsure whether the symptoms you are experiencing are thrush, speak to your doctor.
For people who have had vaginal thrush before and are experiencing symptoms again, you can order vaginal thrush treatments through our online prescribing service.
One medication that can help combat these symptoms is Canesten (clotrimazole).
You can buy Canesten Combi to treat vaginal thrush from Prescription Doctor's trusted online pharmacy. Simply complete our short medical form for one of our doctors to review.
Canesten contains an ingredient called clotrimazole, which inhibits fungi's ability to produce ergosterol.
Without ergosterol, the walls of the cells become weakened. The weakened cell walls develop holes which allows the contents of the cell to spill out, killing them.
You should start to feel better after 3 days of using Canesten Combi.
If you do not notice an improvement in your symptoms after using Canesten for 7 days, speak to your doctor.
There are two different packs of Canesten Combi - one with a soft gel pessary and cream, and one with a hard pessary and cream.
The internal pessary is a small device which is inserted into the vagina, using the provided applicator.
You should insert the Canesten pessary at bedtime.
The pessary dissolves inside the vagina, releasing clotrimazole to fight the infection directly. Depending on whether you buy Canesten Combi with a soft gel pessary or regular pessary, the shape and appearance of the pessary may be different.
Detailed instructions on how to use Canesten Combi can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.
The cream inside the Canesten Combi pack is for use on the vulva (the area around the opening of the vagina).
You should apply the cream 2 or 3 times daily until the symptoms disappear.
Your thrush symptoms should go away within a few days of treatment with Canesten. If you do not see any improvement after a week, you need to let your doctor know.
If you experience a recurrence of the infection after a week, you can use one further treatment, however, you will need to see your doctor if in the past six months you've had more than two infections.
Only use the external cream on the outside of your vagina.
Do not use Canesten vaginal cream during your menstrual cycle as it may reduce the effectiveness of treatment.

Do not use more Canesten 2% cream to make up for the missed dose.
Using more Canesten cream than you should may result in redness and discomfort.
