Canesten Thrush Duo Oral Capsule & External Cream

Canesten Thrush Duo is a treatment for vaginal and penile thrush, it combines an oral treatment to treat the infection and an external cream to ease the symptoms associated with thrush. Thrush is caused by a yeast infection called Candida albicans, and this medicine contains antifungal medicines that destroy the fungi that cause the infection and relieve symptoms such as itching. The antifungal medicines in this treatment are fluconazole and clotrimazole.


If you’ve had a diagnosis of thrush, Canesten is the most effective and convenient treatment to target the infection and help you to function normally without the distraction of irritating symptoms. This treatment may be used by men and women.

What’s in the Canesten Thrush Duo Pack and how does it work?

The Canesten Thrush Duo pack contains an oral capsule that is taken as a single dose, this is to directly treat the infection. The pack also contains a cream that is applied externally to the vagina or penis to reduce any soreness or itching.

Canesten Thrush Duo contains two active ingredients, fluconazole which is present in the capsule, and clotrimazole which is present in the cream. These ingredients are known as antifungal medicines, they fight infection caused by fungi and yeast such as thrush. These medicines work by interfering with the cell membranes of the fungi, it stops the fungi from producing a substance known as ergosterol which is an essential component of the cell membrane that prevents the cell’s contents from leaking out. Without ergosterol, the fungi cannot survive as holes appear in the cell membrane which forces its contents to leak out. Both of these antifungal medicines kill the fungi which eventually clears the thrush infection.

Is this treatment right for me?

This treatment can only be used for vaginal or penile thrush infections. The symptoms of thrush can be very similar to other infections so it’s important that you get a diagnosis from your GP before buying this treatment to ensure that it will work for you. If you have been diagnosed with thrush, or have recurrent thrush, your sexual partner may also be treated at the same time with the external cream to prevent the thrush infection from returning.

How to use Canesten Thrush Duo Oral Capsule and External Cream

In the pack you will be given one oral capsule that contains fluconazole, this should be taken whole with water, and with or without food. Do not take more than one capsule. The cream which contains clotrimazole should be applied externally around the entrance of the vagina or at the end of the penis. Apply the cream thinly and evenly 2-3 times a day until your symptoms are gone. You should feel better after around two days of treatment, however, see your doctor if your symptoms haven’t improved after 7 days of treatment.

Who should not use this medicine?

There are some circumstances where this treatment may not be suitable, for instance, if you have a certain medical condition or are taking medicines which may interact with Canesten Thrush Duo. Do not take this medicine if you are allergic to fluconazole, clotrimazole, or any of the other ingredients in this medicine, this also applies if you’ve ever had a reaction to any other fungal infection treatments.
