Clotrimazole for vaginal thrush

Medication Information: Many women occasionally develop vaginal thrush. Vaginal thrush is caused by a yeast fungus of the Candida species (often a yeast called Candida albicans). Common symptoms of vaginal thrush include itching, pain and redness outside the vagina, and white, odorless discharge. Clotrimazole kills the fungus that causes the infection.

Clotrimazole is commonly used in two ways to treat thrush. The first is an internal cream (suppository) that is inserted into the vagina to treat an infection. A cream (usually containing 2% clotrimazole) is then applied outside the vagina to relieve itching and pain. Many of the products available contain some form of clotrimazole (internal and external). Clotrimazole for the treatment of vaginal thrush, with or without a prescription, is sold in pharmacies.
