Uses Of Canesten V6

Canesten V6 (Clotrimazole) is a broad spectrum antifungal medicine used for treating vaginal candidiasis (yeast infections also known as thrush), including those which are recurrent. It works by acting against the growth of the fungi. Vaginal thrush occurs as a result of a fungus called candida albicans. In general, bacteria present in the body can help to keep this yeast at bay. However, should overgrowth of candida albicans occur (possibly caused by sickness), the occurrence of a yeast infection is possible.
