What is Gynoxin?
Gynoxin 2% is an antifungal cream for the treatment of vaginal yeast infections. The active ingredient fenticonazole belongs to a class of medicines called antimycotics. Antimycotics prevent fungi and yeasts from being able to multiply by damaging their cell walls, thereby curing the symptoms of the infection.
What is it used for?
Gynoxin is prescribed by doctors to treat vaginal yeast infections. Vaginal yeast infections can be recognised by:
- Excessive vaginal discharge with an abnormal colour and smell.
- Itching or soreness of the vagina and labia or swelling of the vagina and labia.
- Pain or burning sensation when passing urine.
Gynoxin helps cure the infection and reduce vaginal symptoms.
How to use Gynoxin
A complete course of treatment with Gynoxin lasts for three days. Gynoxin should be inserted twice a day into the vagina using the applicator provided with the cream. Consult the package leaflet for instructions on how to use the applicator. It is important that you finish the entire course, even if you feel better. Stopping early could cause the infection to return.
One gram of Gynoxin cream contains 20 mg fenticonazol. Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, the usual dose is:
- One applicator full (5 g) administered into the vagina twice a day, morning and evening, for three days.
One tube of Gynoxin contains enough cream for six doses (three days). The applicator is re-usable and must be cleaned carefully after each use. If you have forgotten to administer a dose, do so as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. Never administer a double dose to make up for the forgotten dose.
Gynoxin can cause side effects, such as:
- A burning sensation where the cream was applied.
- Caution: vaginal creams usually leak out of the vagina, but this does not make the product less effective. A mini pad will protect your clothing.
See package leaflet for more side effects, warnings and contraindications.
Consult your doctor before using Gynoxin cream and the applicator if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Gynoxin does not interfere with your ability to drive safely. There are no known interactions between alcohol or specific foods and Gynoxin.
