Canesten Combi Pessary & Cream Clotrimazole is a complete treatment for thrush, treating both internally and externally. Clotrimazole is an antifungal medication which treats against infections such as thrush.
To treat itching and soreness of the vulva, apply cream thinly and evenly applied to the area around the entrance of the vagina, 2 or 3 times a day.
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 2 weeks.
Use the applicator to insert the pessary as high as possible into the vagina, preferably before going to sleep at night.
Wash your hands before removing the foil from the blister pack and again afterwards when you have used the applicator.
1. Remove the applicator from the packaging. Pull out the plunger A until it stops. Remove the pessary from the foil blister pack and place firmly into the applicator B.
2. To fit the pessary into the applicator, the holder of the applicator needs to be squeezed lightly at both sides. The pessary fits tightly into the applicator and needs to be squeezed into the holder to about 1cm.
3. Carefully put the applicator as deep as is comfortable into the vagina (this is easiest when lying on your back with your knees bent up). Holding the applicator in place, slowly press the plunger until it stops so that the pessary is deposited into the vagina.
