Canesten Combi Pessary & Cream is a complete thrush treatment because it contains: a soothing cream to start relieving the itch immediately, a pessary for insertion into the vagina for treatment at the site of infection. The pessary also contains an ingredient that helps restore the vaginas pH balance.Canesten Combi Pessary & Cream is for women who have previously been diagnosed as suffering from vaginal thrush. Vaginal thrush is a common infection that most women have some time in their lives and is not caused by a lack of personal hygiene.Thrush is caused by a yeast (fungus) called candida which may live har mlessly 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 perfumed soaps, hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, 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.If your discharge is green coloured, and/or foul smelling consult your doctor as you may have another type of infection which can be effectively treated with a different medicine.
