Canesten 6 Day Pessary Treatment 100mg is an effective six-day treatment regimen featuring antifungal medicine. It has the active constituent, clotrimazole, for treating vaginal thrush. Both fungal and yeast infections can be treated using this pessary.
The Candida species of fungi, particularly Candida albicans, is responsible for causing infections in the form of vaginal thrush. Vaginal thrush manifests as an inflammation and discharge of the vagina.
Canesten 6 Day Pessary Treatment 100mg features clotrimazole, which works by blocking the cell membranes of the Candida species. It stops the formation of egosterol, a very essential part of the fungi's cell membranes. Without it, perforations form in the cell membranes, allowing substances to freely enter and exit the cell. Because of this, even the important components of the cell leak out. In effect, the fungi die and the infection is effectively treated.
How it works?
Canesten 6 Day Pessary Treatment 100mg 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.
