Canesten 20g/50g Cream is an effective antifungal treatment consisting of clotrimazole. Clotrimazole treates vaginal thrush and alleviates symptoms such as inflammation, itching and soreness caused by yeast and fungal infections.
Candida albicans from the Candida species of fungi cause vaginal thrush. Infection of this fungi results in inflammation of the vagina and vaginal discharge.
Canesten 20g/50g Cream 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.
