How Do I Know It’s a Vaginal Yeast Infection?

6 main symptoms:

  • Itching

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Unusual discharge

  • Burning

  • Soreness

A vaginal yeast infection doesn’t usually change the pH level and has no odour, but you might feel pain during sex or urination.

No stress!

It may feel uncomfortable, but there’s no need to be scared. A yeast infection is not an STI and is usually not a serious  condition, and in most cases it can be treated easily and effectively. It is also normal and very common — 3 in 4 women suffer from it at least once during their lifetime and it’s not caused by a lack of hygiene.

How to Use the Canesten® Combi 1 Day Internal + External Creams

Wash your hands thoroughly before and after using Canesten®.

The pack contains a full course of treatment which consists of one pre-filled applicator with internal cream to treat the cause of a vaginal yeast infection, and tube of external cream to quickly relieve the external itch and burn.

Step 1


The internal cream should be inserted as high as possible into the vagina with the help of the applicator, as indicated in the product insert, preferably before going to sleep at night for convenient and comfortable treatment.

Step 2

The external cream should be gently spread over the irritated vaginal area, 1-2 times a day. It should only be used during the period when external symptoms are present, to a maximum of seven days.

Please refer to the package insert for complete instructions on how to use this medication.
