This interference in making of ergosterol results in causing holes in the fungal cell membrane. The cell membrane is vital for survival of fungi cell and it works as a shield that keeps unwanted substances away from entering and stops the contents of the cell from leaking out. As a result of Clotrimazole effect, holes appear on the cell membranes, which let the essential constituents of the fungal cells out. And as a consequence, fungi cell die and the infection gets treated.

 

Medication information

The active ingredient in Generic Canesten prevents the development and proliferation of yeast cells and which kills them. Only yeast cells are affected, while human cells remain unharmed. This is why Canesten is also very well tolerated; transient, mild side-effects occur only rarely. Usual suggestive indications of Generic Canestan include the following medical conditions:

  • In female patients: Inflammation of the vagina (vaginitis) caused by infection with Candida albicans (also known as vaginal thrush).

  • In male patients: Inflammation of the penis and/or foreskin (candidal balanitis) caused by infection with Candida albicans (also known as thrush).

 

Dosage

Generic Canesten is a prescription-free drug in most of the countries as a short span treatment (for 1-, 3-, or 6-day therapy only). The drug is available in various forms such as tablets/capsules for oral administration as well as Canesten as a vaginal cream and vaginal tablet. Regardless of what course of therapy you choose, it is important to remember that symptoms will improve after about 3 days.

  • You should use it as a non prescription agent only if you have already had a vaginal yeast infection diagnosed by a medical practitioner and you have the same symptoms now.

  • It is important for you to eliminate the cause of the yeast infection and at the same time be freed quickly of its accompanying unpleasant symptoms such as itchiness and burning. You can use the anti-fungal Generic Canesten vaginal cream and a vaginal tablet. The vaginal cream or tablet is inserted into the vagina with a special applicator gently, where it eradicates the infection at its source. A thin layer of the topical cream can be used to the vaginal area for relief of external symptoms including burning sensation and itchiness 1 or 2 times daily as needed, until the symptoms persist, and you can continue it for up to 7 days to completely treat the infection.
