If you are suffering from a yeast infection, you can easily take care of the problem: Go to the pharmacist and ask for a modern anti-fungal treatment, e.g. Canesten. Use only if you have already had a vaginal yeast infection diagnosed by a medical practitioner and you have the same symptoms now. The active ingredient in 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. 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. For this reason, Bayer offers the anti-fungal product Canesten as a vaginal cream and a vaginal tablet (pessary/vaginal tablet). The vaginal cream or tablet is inserted into the vagina with a special applicator, where it eliminates the infection at its source. You can support treatment of the burning sensation and itchiness at the vaginal entrance by applying Canesten cream.
