What you need to know about thrush for every woman, where this can­didi­a­sis (thrush) comes from and how to treat this insid­i­ous dis­ease, find out fur­ther in our mate­r­i­al.



What causes thrush?

The dis­ease, wide­ly known among the peo­ple under the name “thrush”, is called “vagi­nal can­didi­a­sis” in med­ical ter­mi­nol­o­gy. This dis­ease received such a tough, not very har­mo­nious name thanks to its “par­ent” — a fun­gus from the genus Can­di­da. This fun­gus is very insid­i­ous: peace­ful­ly liv­ing in a wom­an’s vagi­na, it may not remind of its exis­tence for many years. Its rapid repro­duc­tion is restrained by the nat­ur­al microflo­ra of the vagi­na, local and gen­er­al immu­ni­ty. But as soon as the healthy bal­ance is shak­en, the fun­gus, tak­ing advan­tage of the moment, begins to active­ly mul­ti­ply. At the same time, the prod­ucts of his vital activ­i­ty — cur­dled mucus is secret­ed in con­sid­er­able quan­ti­ties, caus­es severe itch­ing and so affects the nerves that women are ready for any­thing to get rid of the painful symp­toms of thrush. But Can­di­da is a strong and cun­ning ene­my. And in order to defeat him, you need to study all his habits.

As we have already said, Can­di­da fun­gus can be found in the vagi­na of every woman. But it acquires an ardent desire for rapid repro­duc­tion under the influ­ence of the fol­low­ing fac­tors:

  • decline gen­er­al immu­ni­ty lev­el under the influ­ence of some oth­er dis­ease. Some women are so “lucky” that even a mild form of acute res­pi­ra­to­ry infec­tions can cause them to exac­er­bate thrush.
  • Decrease in the lev­el of local, that is, vagi­nal immu­ni­ty can also “wake up” the fun­gus Can­di­da. This can hap­pen due to the appear­ance of some kind of infec­tion in the vagi­na after vis­it­ing the pool, sauna, beach, etc. with­out observ­ing the rules of per­son­al hygiene. The pro­tec­tive microflo­ra of the vagi­na takes up arms against the “new­com­er”, and the Can­di­da fun­gus seizes the moment and blooms in all its unsight­ly “splen­dor”. Some­times a decrease in the lev­el of local immu­ni­ty occurs with “exact­ly the oppo­site” — an increased love for antibac­te­r­i­al soap and its use for hygiene of the exter­nal gen­i­tal organs, douch­ing unnec­es­sar­i­ly, self-med­ica­tion in case of self-sus­pect­ing of a vagi­nal infec­tion in one­self — all this leads to an imbal­ance in the local microflo­ra and the appear­ance of thrush .
  • Long term antibi­ot­ic treat­ment from some seri­ous dis­ease — an even more sig­nif­i­cant rea­son for the acti­va­tion of the fun­gus and the appear­ance of acute itch­ing in the vagi­nal area.
  • Preg­nan­cy, menopause, any oth­er hor­mon­al “storms” in the body can also become an inad­ver­tent cause of the occur­rence or recur­rence of thrush.
  • “Car­pet” at the author­i­ties, quar­rel with her hus­band, lack of sleep, emer­gency work, repairs, moth­er-in-law’s vis­it It is impos­si­ble to list all the rea­sons that can cause a seri­ous release of stress hor­mones. Yes, and it’s not nec­es­sary: ​​it’s enough to know that stress­es, espe­cial­ly chron­ic ones, can reach the “holy of holies” and man­i­fest them­selves in such a way that even those around it become clear: some­thing is wrong with this woman on the “low­er floors”.


In addi­tion to the above, too tight under­wear (espe­cial­ly syn­thet­ic) or jeans, change of water and cli­mate zone, diet, etc. can become a “trig­ger” for thrush. And at this point the ques­tion aris­es by itself: is it worth look­ing for the cause of thrush in a woman, or is it worth focus­ing on her treat­ment? The answer is clear: worth it! And you need to do this only with the help of a doc­tor, prefer­ably observ­ing you for a long peri­od of time. Oth­er­wise, the Can­di­da fun­gus will vis­it you with a reg­u­lar­i­ty that pub­lic trans­port in our coun­try can envy. And with his char­ac­ter­is­tic mean­ness, he will choose the most incon­ve­nient time for this: a long-await­ed vaca­tion, the last cou­ple of days before a long-await­ed roman­tic date, an impor­tant busi­ness trip.

Kill immediately!



It is with this thought that hun­dreds of thou­sands of women wake up every day, feel­ing the first symp­toms of thrush. And it’s good if the attend­ing doc­tor is two beeps on the phone and twen­ty min­utes in a taxi. And if not? If the fun­gus chose a 5‑star Turk­ish hotel as a place for its attack, where even for “Hel­lo!” take half of the month­ly salary from vaca­tion­ers? Or on a hik­ing trip, when the near­est rur­al doc­tor with two or three med­i­cines in the first-aid kit is twen­ty kilo­me­ters away? In this case, the drug will help “Canesten” from the Ger­man com­pa­ny Bay­er. But, being prone to thrush and going to places incom­pat­i­ble with the symp­toms of thrush, choose Canesten in spe­cial pack­ag­ing: 500 mg No. 1. Say­ing in the phar­ma­cy the phrase “I, please, Kanesten 500 mg №1» you can be sure that you will be giv­en a drug whose active ingre­di­ent will be the orig­i­nal clotri­ma­zole at a dose of 500 mg, and the pack­age will con­tain an indi­vid­ual appli­ca­tor for hygien­ic inser­tion of the tablet into the vagi­na. A sin­gle injec­tion of the drug at night with a high degree of prob­a­bil­i­ty will allow you to feel like a healthy per­son in the morn­ing. Are you afraid of such a quick and mer­ci­less reprisal against the fun­gus? Are you afraid, get­ting rid of a harm­ful pathogen, seri­ous­ly dis­rupt the microflo­ra of the vagi­na? Don’t be afraid: in the com­po­si­tion Caneste­na con­tains lac­tic acid, which effec­tive­ly helps to restore the nat­ur­al microflo­ra of the vagi­na. And mil­lions of women from more than 90 coun­tries of the world were con­vinced of the effec­tive­ness and safe­ty of treat­ment Kanesten 500 mg №1. More­over, they went to their con­fi­dence for whole gen­er­a­tions for forty years. And it is very good that this drug has found its right­ful place in most Ukrain­ian phar­ma­cies.

Impor­tant! Did you breathe a sigh of relief and say good­bye to the milk­maid with a light heart? Do not hur­ry. The dis­ap­pear­ance of symp­toms does not can­cel a vis­it to the doc­tor. Remem­ber: your goal is to find the true cul­prit of thrush. And elim­i­nate it. It is almost impos­si­ble to do this with­out qual­i­fied med­ical assis­tance. Do not risk your wom­en’s health — this is a basic part of your over­all hap­pi­ness.
