Although it can be uncomfortable, a mild and moderate vaginal yeast infection (VYI) can be quickly and easily treated without a prescription. The common vaginal yeast infection is a type of vaginosis – an inflammation of your vagina. Both fungus and bacteria naturally live in your vagina, but when the fungus Candida albicans increases, it can cause an infection. This fungus may increase when your immune system is weak or when good bacteria (called lactobacilli) can’t keep the fungus under control.
Canesten 1% Topical Cream with 1% Clotrimazole can be applied to the irritated area to help relieve external itching and burning quickly. Canesten 1% Topical Cream is for external use only and may be used in in conjunction with internal Canesten cream products or CanesOral.
