Canesten Oral capsule is a single capsule treatment for thrush. It can also be used by your partner if he has thrush on his penis. Canesten Oral capsule contains fluconazole which is an antifungal agent, that fights the cause of infections such as thrush. Thrush is caused by a yeast (fungus) called Candida which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it. However, the natural pH balance of the vagina that keeps Candida under control can be upset by many factors such as hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, perfumed soaps, bath additives and tight clothing.If the natural pH balance is altered the level of yeast increases and can develop into a thrush infection causing any of the following symptoms: persistent burning itching around the vagina and vulva, redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva and a whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina.In men, Candida can also cause thrush a condition called balanitis (inflammation of the end of the penis).It causes any of the following symptoms: soreness and redness of the penis, tightness of the foreskin and a white, odourless discharge from the penis. For women and men, if this is the first time you have had these symptoms, talk to your doctor before using Canesten Oral capsule.
