How does Canesten Gyno work?
Thrush infections found in the vagina are caused by Candida species of fungi, particular Candida albicans. This infection causes a discharge from the vagina to occur and also inflames the area around the vagina. Women describe the discharge to be a cottage cheese consistence.
Clotrimazole is the active ingredient; helping to kill the Candida fungi causing the infection to encroach on the cell membranes. The fungi stops producing ergosterol, which is an essential substance component of a fungal cell membranes. When the production is interfered with, ergosterol creates holes in the fungal cell membrane.
The fungi needs the cell membranes to stay alive to stop substances from entering the cells and to prevent any being leaked out. When clotrimazole causes the holes to appear it takes over killing the fungi and treating the infection.
How do I use Canesten Gyno?
This depends on what infection you are treating. Canesten Gyno comes in a cream, tablets and also a pessary. When treating vaginal thrush a single dose of pessary should clear up the infection inside the vagina.

The pessary should be inserted into the vagina at bedtime using the applicator provided.
However, you can also use the cream on the outside of the vagina (vulva and labia) to help reduce the external symptoms. These include; itching, soreness and inflammation. Clotrimazole 1% or 2% cream are suitable for this.
