Description

What is thrush and how do I know I have it?

Thrush is caused by a yeast infection called Candida which usually lives harmlessly on parts of the body. Thrush occurs if the level of yeast increases, with growth tending to occur in warm, moist conditions and developing if the balance of bacteria changes. The balance may be disturbed by hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, perfumed soaps, bath additives and tight clothing, not just poor hygiene. 

Thrush can also less commonly occur in men, this is called balanitis (inflammation of the end of the penis).

Canesten Thrush Duo contains: 

  • A single light blue capsule containing 150mg Fluconazole, an antifungal 
  • A tube containing 10g of external clotrimazole 2% cream, a different antifungal

Fluconazole is the active ingredient in this product. Belonging to a group of medication called azoles, the antifungal kills the yeast and fights the cause of the infection improving symptoms. 

Symptoms in women

  • Persistent burning and/or itching around the vagina and vulva
  • Redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva
  • Whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina. 

Symptoms in men

  • Soreness and redness of the penis
  • Tightness of the foreskin
  • White, odourless discharge from the penis. 

Not everybody will have all these symptoms and some may only have one. 

Browns Pharmacy tips to avoid thrush in women

  • Wear cotton knickers and loose clothing
  • Wash daily
  • After going to the toilet, wipe from the front to back 
  • Change your sanitary protection regularly
  • Try to avoid wearing tights, nylon knickers and close-fitting jeans
  • Try to avoid washing with perfumed soaps or using vaginal deodorants
  • Do not wash or rub yourself hard with sponges or flannels and avoid hot baths with strong perfumed oils
