Canesten cream is an anti fungal cream used to treat skin conditions such as thrush, ringworm, athlete's foot, fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash. It works because the active ingredient is Clotrimazole which is one of a group of medicines called imidazole anti fungals, which are used to treat fungal skin infections. Clotrimazole works by killing yeasts and fungi by disturbing the membranes surrounding it's cells.The fungi then stops producing ergosterol which is essential for the fungi to survive. Without Ergosterol, the fungus develops holes in in the protective membrane causing it to die.

Why Thrush Creams is only a "Quick Fix"
Canesten Cream is great at what it does, its intended purpose as an anti-fungal cream is to wipe out any fungi and yeast in the area it is applied to. However, thrush is caused by your body's inability to control the yeast naturally. Which means that killing the fungus will only stall a regrowth since Candida yeast naturally lives in your body.
If you experience recurring thrush then you need to treat the problem at the root by giving your body back its ability to keep the fungus under control. Yeastrol is an all natural cure for thrush, click below to find out more.
