The new addition to the Canesten range is available alone and in a Combi Pack that also includes a 10g tube of clotrimazole 2% cream. The teardrop-shaped soft gel pessary provides an alternative to traditional tablet pessaries. It contains the same active ingredient, clotrimazole 500mg, which has a well-established efficacy and safety profile.
