Canestan Thrush Cream
Advantages: Soothes the problem quickly.
Disadvantages: May get embarrassed buying it.
Ok so I couldn't think of a better title then that, the bird meaning a thrush bird, get it?
Canestan cream is mainly known for it's treatment of thrush, it's the product that people seem to hide when they are buying it but honestly it is nothing to be ashamed of. Canestan is used for not just thrush but any fungal infections.
It costs £9.99 for 50ml in Boots. You do have to be aged 16 plus to purchase this cream but it can be used on adults and children. Some children can be prone to fungal nappy rashes and this will treat it.
My reason for getting this recently was a fungal infection (a type of thrush) but NOT down there where you may be thinking, honest. For several months I've been getting an infection in the worst place ever for me and that's my belly button, I'm very weird about belly buttons and hated the fact that it would get bright red and infected and basically quite yucky, when it kept coming and going for several months I went to the doctor who advised of the problem and recommenced this Canestan cream. It would seem the infection rotates with my monthly cycle and on mentioning this to the Doctor she said another patient had the same problem and had also suggested the monthly was the reason behind it. Just put that bit in so if others suffer from the same it may help them explain it.
The cream itself comes in a small tube. On first use the top needs piercing which you do by putting the lid upside down and pushing down on it. The cream comes out very easily and little pressure of squeezing is required. It is a white cream so you can easily see where you are rubbing it into using a clean finger.
When I first used this I saw the redness die down fairly quickly and within a couple days the problem was gone. I've only had to use this one other time since having it so hoping that this has knocked the problem on the head.
Always read the label before buying and using and follow any guidelines.
Summary: does the job it is meant to in fast time. Easy to apply.
