What causes thrush?

Thrush is caused when there is disruption in balance between bacteria and yeasts which naturally live within the vagina. This can be caused by a variety of factors like:

  • Medicines and antibiotics
  • Trauma of sexual activity
  • Tampons
  • Stress
  • Perfumed soap, shower gels, or bubble baths
  • Menstruation
  • Wearing tight clothing
  • Pregnancy

Preventing thrush

Canesten Oral Fluconazole Capsule can be used to prevent the growth of fungus and reduce itchy, burning sensations. To prevent thrush from recurring:

  • Avoid tight, synthetic clothing
  • Avoid perfumed soaps, gels, bubble baths, vaginal deodorants and douches
  • Change tampons or pads regularly when on your period

  • The full course of treatment consists of a single Canesten Oral Capsule.
