The Clotrimazole Pessary is a thrush treatment that clears the infection fast. It contains the ingredient clotrimazole. As the pessary is inserted into the vagina it gets straight to the infection and a single dose is usually all that is required.
Thrush is the term used for a common infection caused by a yeast like fungus called candida albicans. Thrush is also known as candidiasis.
Vaginal thrush is a very common infection that affects women of all ages and most women will get thrush at least once during their lives.
Thrush is caused by a yeast that normally lives harmlessly in the body. Yeasts like warm and moist conditions and so can develop in areas like this, for example the mouth and vagina. The yeast is usually kept under control by harmless bacteria but sometimes conditions change and yeast can grow. Thrush is particularly common because of hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy or in women under the age of 20.
Other reasons why the yeast may grow, causing thrush to develop, include:
