CANIFUG Cremolum 200 vaginal suppositories, treatments for yeast infection around vagina way
- The medicinal product is a vaginal suppository for vaginal use.
- The vaginal suppository is inserted as deeply as possible into the vagina in the evening with a previously cleaned finger. This is best done lying on your back with your legs slightly bent.
- To remove the vaginal suppository from the foil strip, please pull apart the two foils at the tip of the suppository.
- A panty liner should be worn while using the vaginal suppository to avoid grease stains on textiles.
- The treatment should expediently not be carried out during menstruation or be completed before menstruation begins.
- Treatment during menstruation should only be carried out in the case of pronounced symptoms. Ask your doctor about this.
- If there is evidence of yeast infection in the vagina, medical supervision should be carried out in the last 4 - 6 weeks of pregnancy to ensure that the birth canal is free of fungi.
- In the event of a simultaneous fungal infection of the labia and adjacent areas or in the case of medically diagnosed inflammation of the glans and foreskin of the partner due to a fungal infection, additional local treatment with intended forms of application should be carried out. To avoid possible reinfection, the partner should therefore be examined by a doctor at the same time.

Mode of action:
How does the ingredient in the drug work?
The active ingredient damages the outer shell, the so-called cell membrane of fungi. This shell thus loses some of its functions, for example it becomes less permeable to nutrients - the cell starves, or cell components escape and the cell dissolves. Depending on the concentration of the active ingredient, the fungi are thereby inhibited in their growth and reproduction or killed directly. The active ingredient is also effective against certain bacteria.
What speaks against an application?
- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
Which age group should be considered?
- Children and adolescents under the age of 18: The medicine may only be used after consulting a doctor or under medical supervision.
What about pregnancy and lactation?
- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: According to current knowledge, there are no indications that the drug should not be used during breast-feeding.
If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.
What side effects can occur?
- Hypersensitivity reactions of the skin, such as:
- burning or stinging of the skin
- reddening of the skin
If you notice any discomfort or changes during treatment, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
For the information at this point, side effects are primarily taken into account that occur in at least one in 1,000 patients treated.
What should you consider?
- Be careful if you are allergic to fungal agents (e.g. clotrimazole)!
- Be careful if you are allergic to emulsifiers (e.g. cetostearyl alcohol)!
- Be careful if you are allergic to the solvent polyethylene glycol (E number E 431)!
- There may be medicines with which interactions occur. You should therefore generally tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicine you are already using before starting treatment with a new medicine. This also applies to medicines that you buy yourself, use only occasionally or have been using for some time.
For medicines: Read the leaflet on the risks and side effects and ask your doctor or pharmacist.
