How to use Canesten Thrush Duo Oral Capsule & External Cream
The capsule is to treat thrush at the site of infection and should be swallowed whole with a glass of water (with or without food). The cream is to treat the itching and soreness of the vulva (vulvitis).
- Before use, pierce the tube seal by inverting the cap over the end of the tube and press.
- The cream should be thinly and evenly applied to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day and smoothed in gently. It should be used until symptoms of the infections disappear.
The symptoms of thrush should disappear within two days of treatment. If no improvement is seen after seven days, you must tell your doctor. If the infection returns after seven days, another capsule may be taken, but if you have more than two infections within six months, you should see your doctor.
Some women suffer from recurrent attacks of thrush. To reduce the frequency of these attacks, the sexual partner’s penis can be treated with this cream to prevent re-infection, even if they have no symptoms of thrush.
If your sexual partner is treated with this cream, the cream should be applied to the end of the penis 2 or 3 times a day for up to two weeks.
