Vaginal yeast infection is treated with medication available over the counter from a pharmacy or on prescription from your doctor.
Treatment can be quite straightforward. To treat the infection, you can use a treatment that contains the active ingredient clotrimazole or fluconazole. Choose from the oral pill, pessary or internal vaginal cream. These products all treat your infection, but different people prefer different treatment options. External thrush creams will help to soothe your symptoms such as itching.
Remember: just treating the itchiness with an external cream won’t get rid of your infection so don’t forget to treat your thrush at the source, with oral capsule or vaginal solutions, such as an internal cream or pessary.
You can buy a Canesten combi pack containing both the internal and external treatments, such as CanesOral Duo or Canesten 1 Day Pessary & External Cream.
