Product Summary

An effective single-dose pessary with applicator for the treatment of vaginal thrush. The pessary goes straight to the site of the infection to clear the cause of thrush.

A vaginal thrush infection may cause any of the following symptoms: whitish, odourless vaginal discharge, persistent burning, itching, redness, swelling, and soreness of the vagina and vulva.


  • The applicator should be used to insert the pessary as high as possible into the vagina, preferably before going to sleep at night for convenient and comfortable treatment.
  • If no improvement is seen after seven days, tell your doctor.
  • If the infection returns after seven days, you may use one further treatment, but if you have more than two infections within six months, see your doctor.


  • Active ingredient: Clotrimazole 500mg
  • Also contains: Lactose Monohydrate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Lactic Acid, Maize Starch, Crospovidone, Calcium Lactate Pentahydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Colloidal Anhydrous Silica, and Hypromellose.
