Canesten 3-Day Cream Yeast Infection Treatment

Some women, especially those who suffer from vaginal dryness, prefer the cream formulation to treat their infection at the site. Canesten® creams are inserted high into the vagina with an applicator. To meet your changing needs and circumstances, Canesten® offers single-application creams, and also creams that can be used daily or over the course of several days.

  • An internal cream to treat the infection at the site
  • A lower concentration of medication for treatment over 3 days.
  • 2% Clotrimazole

How to use the 3-DAY Cream

The pack contains a full course of treatment that consists of three applicators with an internal cream to treat the cause of a vaginal yeast infection.

The internal cream should be inserted as high as possible into the vagina with the help of the applicator, as indicated in the product leaflet, preferably before going to sleep at night for convenient and comfortable treatment. The treatment should be used once a day for three consecutive days.

How long does it take for the 3-DAY Cream to work?

The symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection should start disappearing within a few hours or days. If there is no improvement in your symptoms in 3 days or if they have not disappeared within 7 days, you might not have a vaginal yeast infection. Discontinue treatment and contact your physician.

What does the 3-DAY Cream contain?

The active substance in Canesten 3 Day Cream is Clotrimazole, an antifungal agent which fights fungal infections such as a vaginal yeast infection.
