This pack contains a pessary to treat the cause of vaginal thrush and a tube of soothing cream for relief of the itching.
Vaginal thrush is a common infection that most women have at some time in their lives and is not caused by a lack of personal hygiene. It is caused by a yeast (fungus) called candida which may live harmlessly in the vagina without you even noticing it. However, the natural pH balance of the vagina that keeps candida under control can be upset by many factors such as perfumed soaps, hormonal changes (menstruation, contraceptive pill, pregnancy, menopause), poor health, antibiotics, bath additives and tight clothing.
If the natural pH balance is altered the level of yeast increases and can develop into a thrush infection causing any of the following symptoms: persistent burning and/or itching around the vagina and vulva, redness, swelling and soreness of the tissues of the vagina and vulva and a whitish, odourless discharge from the vagina. If your discharge is green coloured, and/or foul smelling consult your doctor as you may have another type of infection which can be effectively treated with a different medicine
