How to use Canesten cream properly

You should always apply the treatment after your bath or shower, preferably in the evening.

Canesten 3 Day Cream Treatment (2%):
The cream should be applied once daily, preferably in the evening for three successive days (for 2%)

One applicator should be filled with cream (about 5 g) and inserted as gently and deeply as comfortably possible into the vagina
while lying on your back. The 35 g tube of cream is sufficient for six such doses (6 days treatment). The 20 g tube of cream is
sufficient for three such doses (3 day treatment).

If you miss one or more doses, apply a single dose of the cream again as soon as you remember or the next evening, and
continue using it until the course of treatment is finished.

Do not apply two doses at once to make up for a missed dose.

It is important that you complete the entire treatment course as advised even though the symptoms may disappear before
