    Canesten 1 Dose Pessary 500mg is a powerful single dose antifungal medicine containing the active constituent, clotrimazole, for treating vaginal thrush. It is used for the treatment of both fungal and yeast infections.

    Vaginal thrush is an infection caused by the Candida species, specifically Candida albicans. Upon infection of the fungi, inflammation and vaginal discharge occurs.

    Canesten 1 Dose Pessary 500mg contains clotrimazole, the active ingredient, which blocks the functions of the Candida species' cell membranes. It inhibits the production of egosterol, an important part of its cell membranes. In effect, perforation appears in the cell membranes of fungi, enabling substances to freely go in and out of the Candida cells. Vital components of the fungi also leak out from the holes. As a result, the fungi die and the infection is treated.

    How it works?

    Canesten 1 Dose Pessary 500mg should be inserted into the vaginal opening so clotrimazole is delivered directly into the infected area using the applicator. Even a single dose of the pessary can treat the infection. Application of cream on the external area of the vagina may provide symptomatic relief from soreness, inflammation and itchiness.
